    I went through the set up in Outlook to link with Yahoo but for some reason it gets to where it is trying to link with the mail server and can't get it done.

    Any ideas?

    You have to pay for a Yahoo mail account to get POP access, or be Asian.

    Google has free POP and IMAP mail.

    Really? Well that is just disappointing.

    Never heard of paying for a Yahoo account.

    Just finished pawing around at Yahoo.com and see nothing of this. Do you know where to go to look into this further?

    I get my Yahoo mail through Thunderbird through POP access because I changed all my settings to indicate that I was in Asia. Short of that, you need a yearly subscription to Yahoo Mail Plus. It is the same at most mail sites. They all charge for POP access.

    OK, I remember now what you refer to. I knew that just had slipped away.

    First of all I work for a Non-Profit and don't have money to spend on much but hard bills. So buying software, paid subscriptions, etc are not an option for me right now.

    I was hoping to create an eNewsletter in Publisher and then send out through Outlook. Any free ideas as to how to go about this?

    I mean by-the-way eMails that look and read as a newsletter.

    As I said, Google has free POP access. You can open an account there if you don't have one. Then you enable POP access in your account settings and follow their very good directions on how to set up the addresses and ports for access from Outlook. That would seem to be the most cost-effective approach if you want to use Outlook, and I can see why you would.

    Of course, nothing is really free. Just like with Google Docs, they scan all the email that goes through their server for any information they can gather for marketing purposes and targeted ads. They say that all that data is anonymized. Google sells ads and not software, so everything they do has ads as a goal.
