    I sent an email to Popowich indicating i had problems regarding the procedure his return email indicated some of the mistakes i could have made and it seems he is probably right. I replied but it might have been sent as a private message. I thought i had posted the same info on this forum but i can't find it,probably user error. What i would like to know is if i make the following changes to the Outlook Express portion does it have a chance to fly:
    Step 6 Insert: jwmeyer4002@sbcglobal.net
    Step 8 Insert: pop.mail.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
    Step 9 insert: smtp.mail.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
    step 11 Insert: jwmeyer4002
    My email service was with AT&T and at some point Yahoo got into the act. I didn't change anything it just happened.
    My email address is jwmeyer4002@sbcglobal.net
    i haven't tried the ypops part yet. One procedure at a time

    I remember the question. Did you create a second account here?

    I believe I linked you to this thread to figure out the correct incoming and outgoing mail servers :

    http://www.emailquestions.com/isp-f...sbcglobal-incoming-outgoing-mail-servers.html

    SBC Global Yahoo! incoming mail server: pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com
    SBC Global Yahoo! outgoing mail server: smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com

    Are you able to get your email with these settings?

    Decided to try setting up OutLook Express. Everything seemed to be go ok and i closed out and reopened Outlook sign in dialog came up with email address and password already filled in. Title of log on box is "log on - Plus.Pop.Mail.Yahoo. I canceled that and an internet security warning dialog came up with "server you are connected to is using a security certificate that could not be verified, continue yes/no"
    Thinking i may have made an error i went thru the set up again and got the same results. Except now i have to identical set up's
    I also tried the trouble shooting procedure and got as far as double clicking on "pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com" when i did this nothing happened.
    Can you give me some idea on what i can try next.
