    Hi,

    I use Yahoo Mail. but I would also like to configure Windows Mail to send messages where the replies would be delivered to Yahoo.

    Can I do this? If so, please give details.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Yes, if you edit the properties for the account and make the Reply-to: field your Yahoo address I believe that will have the desired effect.

    I am still having a problem

    Can you give instructions on how I can set up Windows Mail so that I can post mail and receive replies at Yahoo mail

    For example, when setting up Windows Mail do I use the ISP login name and password or the Yahoo login name and password.

    I think that this is where the problem lies.

    In addition, I am using a friends connection, will I need to set up my own Inbox at the ISP (the friend has given permission). I do not want my email mixed with hers.

    I don't want to download Yahoo Mail to my pc.

    Thanks
