I tried to set up an account in Apple Mail to receive my Yahoo mail and couldn't get it to work.<br><br>I just don't think Yahoo's servers can be configured as a proxy mail server. IOWs, I suspect they want you to log in to their servers in order to capture your eyes. The promotional gimmickry is what allows them to provide the free email service.<br><br>Now, when they begin "pushing" their mail to Apple's iPhone, I believe you will be able to have your mail pulled in using Apple Mail but that remains to be seen.<br><br>Good luck.<br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)
gmail works just swell. she could have all of her mail forwarded to a new gmail account. and then gmail allows you to send mail from another account (e.g., her yahoo account), so nobody would even know. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
I did find some settings for Yahoo Mail Plus on the internet.<br>This is what I found for setting up Apple's Mail.<br>This is my translation which I e-mailed to my friend.<br><br>Incoming Mail (POP3): pop.mail.yahoo.com<br>Outgoing Mail (SMTP): smtp.mail.yahoo.com<br>Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")<br><br>Click on "Server Settings"<br>Outgoing Mail Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com<br>Server port: 465<br>Click on "Use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)<br>Authentication: Password<br>Click "Okay"<br><br>Click on the Advance Menu.<br>Port: 995<br>Click on "Use SSL"<br>Authentication "Password"<br><br>
