Outlook Express - Cannot Send POP3 Emails (& Cannot Receive Yahoo


R

Roxieham

I have setup to receive my gmail, live, and yahoo emails in Outlook Express
2007. I have successfully received the gmail and live emails, but I have not
received any yahoo emails.

Furthermore, I am not able to send any emails from any of the email accounts
and they messages are all sitting in the outbox (unsent). With the Yahoo
account, I receive the following error message:

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was
rejected. Account: 'plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com', Server:
'plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR [SYS/PERM]
pop not allowed for user.', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error:
0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC92

What could be the problem? Please let me know if there is something else to
try or double check to ensure that I have setup the accounts properly.

Free Yahoo accounts cannot be accessed via POP. If this is a free account,
that's the explanation. However, if you're using the plus server, then
perhaps you have a Yahoo Plus account. If so, contact Yahoo and have them
help you solve the problem, since you pay them for the Plus account.

First of all, I would ask in an Outlook Express newsgroup, not Outlook.

Thanks Brian, you have cleared up the matter for me as I do not have a
Yahoo Plus account (it's a free account). When I read the
instructions for setting up POP for Yahoo, it provided instructions
for the Plus account. Thus, the reason that I have encountered the
error. I will setup POP again for a free account.

Now, as for the gmail and live accounts, I am still not able to send
emails from Outlook Express as the emails are sitting in the Outbox.
What could be the problem? Any suggestions will be greatly
appreciated.

Please clarify: you either have Outlook Express, or Outlook 2007 - which?

Outlook Express 2007 (I believe that I know what the problem is now).

Outlook Express 2007 (I believe that I know what the problem is now).

Me too. There is no such product as Outlook Express 2007.

I will setup POP again for a free account.

Yahoo does not allow POP access for free accounts. You can, however, try
this:

How did you configure the gmail and Live accounts. Post details.
