    RE: windows mail wont work

    Vista and the Windows Mail app does not work with web based email accounts
    such as hotmail, yahoo etc. You should use the Windows Live Mail app. You
    will have to signup for it (search from the start circle and you will find)
    and then you will be directed. I have successfully linked web based email
    accounts using this.

    Please note this [ Windows Live Mail ] is a beta version.

    Ok.

    Please don't jump in to a discussion thread started by someone else.
    Always start a new conversation when first reporting your issue.

    You will need to get the name of your SMTP server from your Internet
    Service Provider (ISP) or your mail provider. They usually have a website
    that has that information listed. Alternatively, you can tell us who
    provides your Internet and mail service, and we can probably find that
    server information for you.

    *_Unselect_the_SSL_box_. Yahoo does not use SSL.
    Hope it helps!*
