I have been using YPOPS for over a year to bring my Yahoo! mail into Outlook. A few weeks ago it stopped sending/receiving. I am getting an error message telling me the mailbox is not available. Does anybody have any idea why it suddenly stopped working? If it matters I have XP Home and am using the latest version of Firefox.

Can you log into your Yahoo account via the browser? Have you tried to just reconfigure YPOP to make sure nothing was changed?

I'm not familiar with YPOP - but I'm also surprised that Yahoo! doesn't support POP natively. You may find better solutions at the YPOP's own user forums.

Thank you for the response.

Yes, I can log into the account via the internet. I checked the settings, and they are correct. I even uninstalled and then reinstalled YPOPS.

The only thing I can think of is that this trouble happened right about the same time that Firefox updated to the new version, but everything else is working.

Their premium service, Yahoo Personal Email supports POP, but costs $35/year.

It could be that Yahoo changed something on their end that broke the YPOPS plugin. It's not unreasonable to expect that Yahoo prefers people to spend $35/year, rather than use a free workaround.

I read that sometimes there's a minor change in the URL.

Well this turned out to be the answer. You now have to upgrade in order to use YPOPS. *shakes head* Not going to pay $35 because I am too lazy to sign out of one account and into another.

Thanks everyone.

Until a couple of years ago, I was paying Yahoo the $35/year for premium email, because it used to be the only way to get an email box that was larger than 10 MB. Now I use Google's Gmail as my primary email provider. With Gmail, I can POP and IMAP my email to my heart's content and never pay a dime. In case that's not enough of a bonus, Gmail's spam-filtering is much better than Yahoo's.

You don't have to spend that much. Plus is 19.95/year and that will cover the POP stuff.
