  2. There is no mail server named ymail.com. Where did you get that from?
    Is this a free Yahoo account?

  4. US-based free Yahoo accounts have webmail access only, no POP access.
    Windows Mail handles POP mail but not webmail. There are two Yahoo
    solutions:

    1. How did you access Yahoo mail before? If you are happy with
    webmail via your browser, you can continue to use that.

    2. Pay Yahoo to get their premium "Mail Plus" service:
    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/overview/index.html
    and use the special settings for that service:
