    Hi, I'm using windows Live Mail and I would like to use Yahoo mail in Windows Live Mail. I have tried using YPOPS, but it could not work. I have followed the direction on their website but it still doesn't work. I got this error message:

    Unable to send or receive messages for the Yahoo account. The connection to the server has failed.

    Server: '127.0.0.1'
    Windwos Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E
    Protocol: POP3
    Port: 110
    Secure(SSL): No
    Socket Error: 10061

    Can anyone help me on this?

    Thanks

    I have uninstalled YPOPS and followed the instructions again. It says that:

    YOur POP3 server has not responded in 60 seconds. Would you like to wait for another 60 seconds for the server to respond?

    Account: ....
    Server: 127.0.0.1

    What should I do now?

    Thanks.

    Is YPOPS running? Did you reboot after reinstalling YPOPS?

    I don't think it's the problem but you can also try increasing the incoming mail server timeout in your mail program from 1 to 3 minutes.

    Check both your anti-virus software and firewall to make sure you are not blocking tcp port 110.

    I have restarted, and tried removing my account and added again, it still doesn't work. But, I don't know how to check whether my tcp port 110 is blocked though. I have avast antivirus and Microsoft Security Essential.

    Probably also not cure to problem but...you need to decide which anti-virus(Avast or MSE) you want to run and disable (uninstall) the other

    :hammer:I got the EXACT same problem with no solution...Did you ever figure it out? Funny how everyone stopped helping you. I wonder if it's even possible anymore.

    It is possible for some people. YPOPS is not a solution that works for everyone. A Yahoo Mail member trying to use YPOPS may also need to work through firewall and anti-virus program configurations to get it working. The guide that is linked to from post #2 is a good starting point. Good luck!
