    Hi,

    I cannot succeed to create a POP3 email account that will download mail from my work server and from my Yhaoo mail acount.
    Both are POP3 account and the message I get is login failed even that the name and password are correct
    the firewall is not blocking the login attempt...
    Any idea is welcome, thanks

    Yochai

    Are you using Yahoo as your email client or some other package?

    Hi,
    1. I have email account at Yahoo, I added email account using POP3.....but it does not work.
    2 in addition i tried o setup my outlook to access the same email account..did not work
    but when I try to access the email account from a different computer...it works
    it means that something in my PC block the login...I checked the firewall...no problem
    so...what can it be...?
