I am a new user. The Sage U tutorial walks me through Yahoo email setup, but it didn't work. It keeps saying "Failed - cannot find incoming mail server." I called tech support, and the man said I couldn't integrate Yahoo directly from ACT but had to set up Outlook. He didn't know why.
I tried to setup Outlook, but the same problem recurrs: "cannot recognize the incoming mail server." I checked the ports and it was already set up for 110 and 25.
What's up? Can I or can't I use ACT to access my (free)YahooMail account?

You used to be able to access Yahoo mail for free years ago with your own "email program" like Outlook/Eudora/Thuderbird but it's not free anymore. You must sign up for one of their non-free accounts like Yahoo Mail Plus for about $20/year or a business account depending on your use. Microsoft also charges for their service too however Google's GMail is free and supports both IMAP and POP.
