    Still getting error messages and nothing appears to work. Rechecked the yahoo POP settings and rechecked each of the settings as recommended.

    Note- our problems with outlook happened afer yahoo went through a major upgrade several months ago. Reecently the servers froze and messages delayed for hours.

    What alternate settings can work? What does Microsoft say? What does Yahoo say?
