  2. I see you may be using a Yahoo email account. US-based free Yahoo
    accounts have webmail access only, no POP access. Windows Mail
    handles POP mail but not Yahoo webmail.
    Yahoo's solution is to pay them for premium "Mail Plus" service:
    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/overview/overview-01.html
    and use the special settings for that service:
    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/original/mailplus/pop/pop-14.html

    If you are OK with using a non-Yahoo email address, you have these other
    solutions that will work with Windows Mail:
    * Use the email address assigned to you by your ISP.
    * Use a free Gmail, AOL, or Hotmail/Live account.

    You can also continue to use Yahoo's webmail: http://mail.yahoo.com
    If you need more help with any of these solutions, just ask.
