    How to set up Windows Mail for Yahoo account

    Hi, i am Christine. My internet connection (comcast) was installed just few
    days ago. I would like to use the Windows Mail but don't know how to
    configure it so that I will be able to use it. I would like to use my Yahoo
    email account. Can anyone help me with the set up process? Or at least give
    me some advice on what to do or where to get assistance with this? By the
    way, what is a POP3? MSTP? ISP number? Where do I get these info? Thanks
    for your help. =)

    If your main email account is the free one (you@yahoo.com),
    that is web mail, and you'd probably be better off using
    Windows Live Mail Desktop:

    Windows Mail is for non-web mail, and it requires
    account settings you get from your ISP (Internet Service
    Provider), which would be Comcast for you. If you want
    to set up your Comcast email account in Windows Mail,
    your ISP has instructions here:
