I have the same problem with Outlook Express, i can receive but not send, my fix is.

Go to tools then account then properties then connections, check always connect to this account using.

I havn't used Microsoft Outlook in years, i don't know if this will solve your problem, it does mine.

We use Hot Mail not Outlook Express.

I'm afraid I only get as far as Tools. After that I can only find Email Accounts, and I don't have any properties there!
I use Yahoo! Mail, but some programs use Outlook as a default, eg: for error reports. And it is then quite annoying if I can't send!

Check your settings under account and make sure that your SMTP and POP3 settings are correct. Make sure your connection settings are correct. You should be able to do a send/receive to test it.

How do I get to these settings? I don't have any 'account' settings (or at least I can't find them Confused ). I have 'Email accounts' and then i have the options to add a new email account, to edit existing accounts, to add a new directory or to edit existing directories. But I don't think they are what I need. Any ideas?

I'm afraid I'm lost Sad . I have Microsoft Outlook 2000 (maybe that makes a difference?). I think I'll just stick with copying the emails which send from Outlook by default, and sending them from Yahoo.

Try this tutorial: Microsoft Outlook 2000 Guide

Just make sure that you have the correct POP3 & SMTP server names from your ISP.

I tried what they say in the tutorial, and it doesn't work. Apparently (according to Yahoo!Answers) Outlook doesn't work with Yahoo. And I don't have any other email account to try it with. Still, thankyou for all your help!

Both of the following free programs will allow you to receive & send Yahoo emails via Outlook 2000 (or any other email client):

YPOPs! :: Free POP3/SMTP access to Yahoo Mail! - YPOPS! screenshots

MrPostman - Read your webmail from a pop mail client (requires java which most people have installed on their PCs)

If the yahoo account is free, you don't use an email program (Outlook, Outlook Express, pocoMail - none will send yahoo email). You go to the website mail.yahoo.com and write your email and send from there. Email programs like the above are used only with email accounts that allow you to use POP or IMAP and in about 99% of the cases, these are paid email programs. Most of the free ones, require you to use the web site to get and send email.

I use hot mail, i can open Outlook Express and get hot mail, also yahoo, to check my mail.

I don't know how brat set it up, when he done it the steps looked like what seaeagle posted in here Microsoft Outlook 2000 Guide.

I just went into OE tools Internet Account, Yahoo, Hot Mail, Escapenet, are in there, we can use the 3 for our Email.

Hope i'm making sense.

Yahoo mail can be configured in a pop3 email program such as Outlook but I see no benefit in doing so.

I use it to check yahoo for messages, i don't have yahoo installed on any HDDs, i don't like.

In 1999 when we got our first PC some friends had hot mail some yahoo so brat set up both, we still get mail in yahoo from die hards.

I should put gmail in there also.

Kriss, then walk el through the steps because that is what was asked for in the first post.

YahooPops says this
Quote:
Yahoo! Mail disabled free access to its POP3 service o­n 24th April, 2002. This application emulates a POP3 server and enables popular email clients like Outlook, Netscape, Eudora, Mozilla, etc.
since I don't use a paopular email client, I've never looked at this.

Hello,

Was this something which was working for you before and then stopped working, or has it never worked correctly for you?

I never used outlook for emails before, but now I have a few programs which just use it as a default. I don't think it worked, though.
I had brought my computer to be repaired, and to speed it up a bit.
Everything was wiped clean and reinstalled.
Before I did that I had Microsoft Office 2003. Now, afterwards, I have Microsoft Office 2000.

Hello,

In that case, it could be that Microsoft Outlook is not configured correctly to send email. I would suggest you contact your Internet service provider (or whomever provides your email service) and ask them to walk you through setting up Outlook so that it can send and receive emails properly.

Regards,

I now use inbox.com for outlook. And I found settings under yahoo.com for outlook (you can configure it to send there). haven't tried it though. I'm happy with inbox.com (for outlook, that is)!
