Problems sending emails in Windows live with yahoo
Hope this is the correct area for this posting, if not please let me know!
I have a yahoo email account and have followed instructions to set up in Windows live, I can send emails okay but cannot receive them.
I have the outgoing server as 465 and incoming as 995.
I have tried ticking/unticking the various authentication boxes but keep getting the following message.
Unable to send or receive messages for the Yahoo (k.......70) account. Windows Live Mail couldn't log on to the e-mail server using authenticated POP (APOP). Contact your e-mail provider and verify that it supports authenticated POP. To change this logon setting, in the folder list, right-click on the account name, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu. In the Properties dialog, click the Servers tab and then under Incoming Mail Server, select a logon option.
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80004005
My broadband provider is BT does this make a difference.
