My friend bought an used computer. I setup her computer to have web e-mail with Yahoo.ca. She can send and receive web e-mail with Yahoo.ca without problem. Also she has Microsoft Office Outlook (Windows XP). I tried to setup Microsoft Office Outlook to work with yahoo.ca. I received an error" POP3 server cannot be located. I know that the setup is correct.
My question is : Can be setup Microsoft Office Outlook to work with Yahoo.ca without open account with Yahoo and pay for it?

As far as I am aware you must use the paid version of Yahoo mail in order to get POP3 capability.

According to Yahoo

The ability to access Yahoo! Mail using an email reader program such as Outlook, Eudora, or Thunderbird is only available to customers of our premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service. To determine whether you have purchased this service, please visit the My Services page.
