  31. Costas says:

    You need to have a Yahoo Mail Plus (which is not available for free) account in order to use POP forwarding! At least that’s my problem. I can’t enable POP forwarding, yahoo asks me to upgrade.

  32. Mars says:

    You NEED A PLUS ACCOUNT to do this and THANKS A LOT for easy instructions.

  34. Bharti Thukral says:

    Hello all,

    For those who are still receiving prompt to enter the password, please make sure that you log into your account online, go to options-mail options-pop and forwaring and enable pop and forwarding in your account.

    Then go back to outlook, and follow simple steps and you are done.

  40. Raj Kumar Das says:

    when i open my yahoo id same computer or other computer, their is missing my mail in yahoo inbox, because all mails in the outlook.i want also a copy mail in yahoo.can it happen yahoo sync with Microsoft outlook.

  41. Raj Kumar Das says:

    my web inbox (yahoo) has nothing in it. Is there any way I can restore or download back my emails to my yahoo web inbox?

    • HMMaster says:

      Unfortunately, there is no way to restore the mail to the web inbox. A workaround is that you forward all you emails to your Yahoo Mail again. But of course, you need to change the settings (keep a copy of the mail in your web inbox) as mentioned previously before downloading the emails again.
