You can use POP with the FREE International yahoo.
Can somebody please help me! I am trying to set up microsoft outlook for my father using his yahoo email address. I have entered the correct POP3(pop.mail.yahoo.com) and SMTP (smtp.mail.yahoo.com) and all other relevant details i.e user name, password etc. All details are correct but when i test the settings it says:
1. Outlook could not connect to the outgoing SMTP mail server because the server did not accept your user name and password.
2.Outlook could not connect to the incoming POP3 mail server because the server did not accept your user name and password.
When i am prompted to enter user name and password and enter the details correctly, the prompt box just stays on the screen as if it hasnt recognised that i clicked on the OK button. The details are correct but i obvioulsy have some settings set incorrectly. I connect to the internet by broadband so what should i say i use to connect to the internet?
I am really confused so if someone could help me asap i would be very grateful
