The default email can not be set to an internet mail type.. It must be set to one of the various standalone email clients such as Outlook or Outlook Express, etc.. And, in order to create a POP3 account on Yahoo which will download to a standalone email client, you must purchase their Yahoo Mail Plus account.
Hope this helps.
When I try to respond to a ads on Craigslist etc. XP opens 50-60 pages of page not found. We tried to go to internet options, tools, etc but the only choices were Outlook and Hotmail and no way to type in our choice which is YAHOO mail. What are we doing wrong? We were able to choose YAHOO when we set up the computer when we bought it. We also tried to reset the default in internet options. Can someone walk me through this keeping in mind I'm an idiot with computers
