Auto configure Outlook
Configure other clients
As a sidenote, I suggest you use some other email client if you can. Consider Mozilla Thunderbird, for instance. Outlook isn't the best on security, filtering and stability -- and that's putting it lightly.
cool thanks! i configured my google account already... im donwloading thunderbird as well... can thunderbird read web based mail as well?
It can read POP mailboxes, including gmail. Is that what you mean?
yeah, gmail worked as well as my POP mailbox... will yahoomail work as well? if ever how do i make it work? thunderbird simply imported my accounts from outlook express
Don't ever, ever, ever use outlook. Just don't do it. Never ever ever.
For yahoo, if you have a premium account then you can configure it to work with thunderbird with ease. However, if you have a free account, then you will need a program like yahoopops, or something similiar. Here is a thread for thunderbird that has links to some of the program websites. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=53174
Don't forget that you have to be invited to use the pop3 service from google.
I have only had gmail for a few weeks now, but all I had to do was go into, I think, settings and change an option to enable pop3.
