A friend has just got BT Broadband and is using outlook to acces his e-mails from yahoo but keeps getting the message that the password is incorrect.

Any ideas please

try logging using the web interface with the same password to see if he can access them this way. if he can't then changes are the password is wrong and will need resetting !

He can log in using the web site but not through outlook

go to tools - accounts and then view the properties of this account. Ensure that the details for the user name, password and servers are correct. Your ISP should be able to provide you with there server details.

If this doesn't work make a note of the settings and remove the e-mail account and create a new one. Alternatively your ISP may have a program to configure the settings that is run from the internet.

If you sign in to your email account within Yahoo and go to mail options, management then either mail accounts or/and pop access and forwarding it will give you all the settings you need to set it up
