Outlook Express is a popular email and news client which is incorporated along with many versions of Windows operating systems and highly compatible with Internet Explorer. On Windows XP operating system, it integrates with the Windows Messenger application. The first version was released in the year 1996, following the release of Internet Explorer version 3.

Using web mail services offers you the facility to read and write Emails from any part of the world, provided you have an active internet connection. However, most of the people who process mails at home, and have no intention to move up and down, will prefer Outlook, which provides the users with advanced email features. Even if you are a web mail user, you can still avail the features of Outlook by setting up your webmail in Outlook. At times, there can be trouble connecting your webmail account to Outlook due to various reasons. In this post, I attempt to raise some of the common Outlook problems faced while connecting Yahoo mail to Outlook, along with steps to fix these issues.
One of the reasons why you are unable to connect your Yahoo to Outlook can be the subscription issue. To enable the Yahoo Email service in Outlook, you need to have an active subscription to Yahoo Mail Plus. It’s a premium based service for which users need to make a yearly payment. Unlike Yahoo’s free webmail service, Yahoo Mail Plus includes other features like live customer support, Outlook setup facility, and the absence of graphical ads.
To avail Yahoo in Outlook, you are required to enable “POP” (Post Office Protocol). You can find the option to enable this in your Yahoo account settings. POP is accountable for sending and receiving mails. In order to enable POP, navigate to your Yahoo email account, and choose Options, followed by Mail Options. Upon finding the POP & Forward link, click on it. Ensure that the Allow your Yahoo Mail to be POPed button named is checked, and click on the “Save changes” button to continue.
Mail Server Settings
Ensure that you have configured the server settings correctly. Enter “pop.mail.yahoo.com” in the Name field and “995” in the field for port. For the outgoing server (SMTP), type “smtp.mail.yahoo.com” in the field for name and “465” in the field for port. Set authentication with SSL for outgoing server and SSL for incoming server. Make sure that you type the same password of your Yahoo mail when prompted to enter it.
If you are unable to connect your Yahoo Mail even after making changes to the server settings, try these alternative steps to fix those Outlook problems. Change the outgoing server port to 587. At times, the issue with connecting Yahoo mail to Outlook can be due to technical issues at Yahoo. In such scenarios, contact Yahoo customer care via email or live chat.
