    Hi all,
    I have set up another e-mail account. Yahoo and that will not do anything. outlook tells me all is set up OK, but when I click on the inbox absolutely nothing happens. it will not get or send any mail.
    so I have given up on this and will be using WLM until it will not work anymore
    Thanks to all who tried to help

    Alternative to the connector method

    Okay, try this...
    Delete your account from Outlook.
    Restart Outlook.
    File > Account settings > Account settings > New >
    choose 'E-mail Account' next > choose 'Manually configure server settings...' next >
    choose 'Internet E-mail' next > enter your details
    in account type choose IMAP
    incoming server:
    outgoing server:
    your username needs to be your full email address I believe
    > more settings
    under the outging server tab
    tick 'my outgoing server requires authentication' you can use either 'use the same as my incoming server' or 'log on using' and enter your details again. Do not tick the SPA box.
    under advanced tab
    incoming server 993
    encryption SSL
    outgoing server 587
    encryption TLS
    untick test account > next > finish
    close and restart Outlook

    you may get a few errors pop up while it all syncs but once settled it should be fine, and stay on-line.

    For the record the Outlook Connector is not necessary in Outlook 2013 (and the new Outlook 2016). accounts are supported directly using the EAS protocol (Exchange Active Sync). I have Outlook 2013 with three accounts using EAS and one Gmail account using IMAP and all work properly. It's not clear why the OP was having trouble.

    Regarding Windows Live Mail (WLM) the DeltaSync protocol works very well for accounts, however Microsoft is going to disable DeltaSync. When that happens accounts in WLM will have to be reconfigured using IMAP and in my experience accounts work poorly using IMAP. For folks who don't like using a browser either Outlook 2013/2016 or eM Client are the way to go since they support EAS.

    I was messing around with windows mail and set up all 3 accounts without a problem.
    it is working well and I think I stick with it. since it comes with windows 10, I think it will be supported by MS for a while.
