...have the special "Yahoo Mail Plus" package that allows for POP3 downloads? Their standard webmail does not support POP3/SMTP downloads to e-mail clients like Outlook. You need to pay an extra $19.99 a year for "Yahoo Mail Plus" to have that option.

Hope this helps.
On my desktop I use Outlook 2000 with a non-AOL email account (my business web site via Yahoo Small Business services).
However I have AOL on my laptop, using it for an ISP only (for now still need dial up access sometimes).
I've been trying to configure Outlook 2000 on my laptop send/receive that "Yahoo" email through the AOL smtp, to no avail (I can receive but not send). Checking around the web, it seems that AOL doesn't offer smtp access for sending mail, with some speculating that it is either due to their spam blockers or desire to lock people into their email.
Is this true, or is there a workaround?
And if not a workaround with AOL, can I switch to something like MSN or other dial-up ISP and use their smtp to send email that is not part of their proprietary system?
In advance, thanks!
