Emails

G'day Folk's.
I just put 'Windows Live Mail' into my Win7, and I am trying to set up the Email system.
I use BigPond as my internet server and Yahoo for my Email.

I tried to set it up but it kept telling me that I have the wrong email adress. So I phone'd BigPond and asked the technical support for help.
After I refused her internet-access to my computer.
She walked me "half-way-around-the-world" and then told me that 'Windows Live Mail' only works with BigPond and Hotmail.
Then gave me an over-seas telephone number for me to talk to Yahoo. That would be rather expensive so I won't use it.

Surely, it is possible to go direct to-and-from Yahoo through 'Windows Live Mail'.

If it is can somebody please tell me how to do it?

Oh yes... I do not use Yahoo-Mail-Plus. I use the free one.

Hi Sladden. I dont use either but I'll try to get you started, See Setting up a Yahoo! Mail account in Windows Live Mail but also:

Thankyou for trying AnnMarie.
I tried what you suggested but it doesn't work. I think. Because I am using the 'Free-Yahoo' and there is no POP3 to select. There is only POP.
So I have un-installed the Windows-Live-Mail and gone back to accessing Yahoo through Firefox.
That way I can read all mails through any computer.
Thank's Anyway.
