Hi,

I just setup Outlook (2010) to download mail from my standard Yahoo email account.  I have multiple folders on Yahoo and and many emails in the folders.  I can't forward more than one email at a time.

Outlook download all the emails from Yahoo that were in the Inbox directory, but none of the messages in the folders -- the most important of the messages!

How do I retrieve my Yahoo subfolder messages into Outlook?

Thanks!

What protocol are using to download the emails?  POP3 or IMAP?  For access to subfolders you need to use IMAP.

These are IMAP Settings for yahoo:
