Default Help with outlook express/thunderbird help! Rep for you!

OK, um, using this, and yahoo express...

http://help.yahoo.com/mail/pop/pop-06.html

I go to logon, I type in my password I hit OK. This is all after I have set all of this stuff up and it supposedly should work.

I hit OK, the little login screen goes away for like 1 nano second, then comes back on, so i hit cancel. So I go to that little window and go to the errors.

There was a problem logging onto your mail server. Your Password was rejected. Account: 'pop.mail.yahoo.com', Server: 'pop.mail.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Server Response: '-ERR invalid user/password', Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x00CCC92

and my password is correct! I am putting in the right password! Don't say I am not, because i am, the one i use here works on mail.yahoo.com the website. so like wtf!

I also have thunderbird installed and all the same settings in it. I put in my password for that and it says, Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server pop.mail.yahoo.com responded: invalid password.

WTF!

I'll give you rep if you can get this to work!

Have you subscribed to the Yahoo! Mail Plus service? Use gmail if you want a service that will give you pop and smtp for free. Send me a PM if you want a invite.

Looks to me like you have to pay for that service. If you don't subscribe to yahoo mail plus, then you are out of luck.

Yes, it's a subscription, like Hotmail Plus. Need a Gmail Invite? PM me. I have 97 left.

From the Yahoo! Mail site:

The ability to access Yahoo! Mail via a POP3 email client (such as Outlook or Outlook Express) is only available to customers of our premium Yahoo! Mail Plus service.

that's odd. I use gmail and all my spam goes into the spam folder. Never have I gotten spam in my inbox, might want to try beefing up your settings on the spam filter and see if that works.
