Re: Error Message when trying to send/recieve



What type of Yahoo mail account do you have?
a) free, US or Canada based
b) free, based in another country (which one?)
c) sponsored through your ISP
d) paid (Yahoo's "Mail Plus")

US-based free Yahoo accounts have webmail access only, no POP
access. Windows Mail handles POP mail but not Yahoo webmail.
Yahoo's solution is to pay them for premium "Mail Plus" service, see:
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/classic/mailplus/overview/
and use the special settings for that service:

If you need more help with this, just ask.
