ACT Email using yahoo?

Can I send emails from ACT using Yahoo?

What do I need to do, to be able to send emails directly from ACT ?


Thanks in advance.

I believe Yahoo POP mail requires custom ports.  For the reason, you cannot use ACT! Internet Email to configure the Yahoo account.  I recommend that you use Outlook if you currently have it.  If not, then you can setup the account in Outlook Express.

You will also need to sign up for one of Yahoo's non-free email services as well in order to access a Yahoo e-mail account with Outlook (or any external third party mail transport agent).  Years ago they allowed access for free but not anymore.  The price is very reasonable for either one of their commercial accounts or Yahoo Mail Plus which is 19.95/Annually.
