Act 200 Email Problem

I am trying to set up my email system with yahoo.

I entered "plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com" and "pop.mail.yahoo.com" in the POP section.

I entered "plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" and  "smtp.mail.yahoo.com. In the email system setup boxes.

 

I get this message when attempting to send email.

"Cannot perform this function; general error

 

Thanks,

Greg

I don't think yahoo uses the default poerts for smtp/pop3 that ACT!'s internet mail requires.

You'll need to connect via Outlook or Outlook Express.

Thank You Mike:

 

I looked on my computer and do have outlook express 6.

 

Is it difficult to set up email with outlook express and run it though yahoo?

 

Thanks,

Greg
