    I don't think that Yahoo has POP3 capability and if not then the answer is definitely no.

    Ms Outlook
    Thanks Cremedies for your post. It seems unbelieavable that a little shareware program that I have called 'eprompter' can do it but a program of the scale such as MS OUTLOOK can't! :confused: :( (emprompter automatically recognises that it's a Yahoo 'type' account from the fist step of setting up an account to retrieve mail from, when supplied with the e-mail address).
    Thanks anyway. :)

    I also use Eprompter; but not to retrieve mail from Yahoo... too much spam created, with advertising emails from Yahoo.

    You might be interested in the following; if you are not already aware of it: is now using the Web Beacon approach to "snoop", passing along your computer information to other companies. To stop it:

    Take a look at their updated privacy statement:

    About half-way down the page, in the section on cookies, you will see a link that says web beacons.
    Click on the phrase web beacons.
    That will bring you to a paragraph entitled "Outside the Yahoo Network." In this section you'll see a little "click here to opt out" link that will let you opt-out of their new method of snooping.
    Once you have clicked that link, you are exempted.
    Notice the "Success" message on the top of the next page.
    Be careful because on that page there is a "Cancel Opt-out" button
    That, if clicked, will *undo* the opt-out.

    Also, Yahoo uses SPAM in all their emails; such as
    If you wish to stop this, then:
    For each Yahoo ID you have, or each email ID you have:
    Go to
    Click on Mail, and sign in.
    Then, click on Mail Options; top right.
    Then, click on Account Information, on the left.
    Fill in your password again; and Submit.
    About halfway down, click on the link "Edit your Marketing Preferences".
    Notice that ALL boxes are checked.
    Click on the blue link "Clear All" at the bottom of all the check marks.
    Then, click on the button "Save Changes".
    Again, this must be done for every Yahoo ID.

    Merry Christmas,
