    Hi, i would really appreciate if you could help me to find out why i m not able to finalize the configuration of my free yahoo e-mail to my microsot outlook 2007.

    in the configuration: the steps: Establish network and Search for my yahoo e-mail server completed but the 3rd step: Log on to server and send a test e-mail message, is not working, always requesting me: Enter Network Password. knowing that my user name and password are filled in & correct.

    my location is Lebanon.

    Thank you in advance and looking to hear from you soon.

    Hello,

    It is not possible to connect to a Yahoo.com account without either installing YPOPS (warning: it does not work for everyone) or upgrading your account to a Yahoo Mail Plus account. You will need to do one or the other to get pop3 access to your Yahoo.com account.
