    Your headers (Microsoft Windows Mail 6.0.6001.18000) tell us you're not running Outlook Express, Carmen.

    If your Yahoo account is tied to your ISP (e.g., Verizon; Fairpoint), contact your ISP for the settings you'll need then start here: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Win...ae0861033.mspx

    If it's a free Yahoo acount, you'll need to subscribe to Yahoo Mail Plus to be able to access the account in Windows Mail (just like you had to do in Outlook Express when you were running WinXP).
