Dear Prozians,

A couple of weeks ago, Outlook Express stopped sending any mail using yahoo accounts.
Yesterday, it stopped receiving and sending any message. It always says no new messages.
For my work mail account [mail.xxxx.org] messages always come back with delivery failure notification.

I have no clue abt what's going on.

Any tips?
TIA

An idea Apr 1, 2008

In December 2007, my ISP blocked port 25 for all users. This port is the one you configure in Outlook for sending messages (SMTP). Maybe you want to check whether this or port 110 (POP3) have been blocked by your ISP. If that is the case, you can search the Web for alternatives to these ports.

Regards,

Elías

Outlook Express sends but I can't receive Apr 2, 2008

That's the problem I am having at the moment...
But it doesn't have to do with a Yahoo account. Could you help?

TIA

So they can force your e-mail through the system and log the headers showing who you're sending it to/receiving it from (under orders from the big brother EU--European Data Retention Directive), they are blocking the standard ports 110 and 25 for accessing external servers.

Simply use an alternative port, like 2525, but check with your e-mail provider on which port to use.

The excuse was to stop terrorism, but any terrorist knows how to securely bypass their system. They are also logging all websites you visit and phone calls you make or receive. The Directive was lobbied for by the music industry so they could use the info to prosecute music sharers, which is the real reason it was passed.

A progress Apr 4, 2008

Thanks for all responses,

With no intervention from my side, I found that the 2 yahoo accounts work properly, same for the 2 accounts@my work site but the default account of my yahoo doesn't receive any message from outlook and reports following error at send attempts '554 Mailbox unavailable'.

TIA
