    Hi testbysunny

    The Outlook Connector is a free program you can download to collect your Hotmail account messages.
    Download the Outlook Connector here:

    You must have a paid subscription to Yahoo to be able to download messages onto your hard drive.
    If you do not, then the answer is "No", you cannot setup Yahoo in Outlook.


    Yes, you can configure your Gmail account in Outlook:
    Login to your Gmail account and click on the Settings link at the top right of the page.
    Then click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
    There you can enable POP access to Gmail.

    What version of Outlook are you using?
    Help > About will tell you.

    If you have a Hotmail account, start with downloading the Outlook Connector and installing it.
    I if recall, the prompts should walk you through the setup.


    For Gmail, Login to your Gmail account and follow the steps I posted above. There is a link called: Configuration Instructions that will show you how to configure your Gmail account in Outlook 2007.

    You most likely have Outlook 2010 installed at this point, let us know if the configuration instructions for Outlook 2007 do not match up with Outlook 2010.
