  3. 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:

    If you are OK with using a non-Yahoo email address, you have three other
    solutions:
    3. Use the email address assigned to you by your ISP.
    4. Get a free Gmail account.
    5. Upgrade to Windows Live Mail and use your msn.com email address:
