Yesterday All Of A Sudden I Cannot Receive Or Send Mail From Outlook 2007 Help

Yahoo mail is suddenly not syncing with iOS devices or Outlook 2011 for MAC (IMAP)!?

I am having the same problem with accessing email on my PC with Outlook 2010 using IMAP to server. I keep getting: "Task ... reported error (0x800CCC0E) : 'Outlook cannot download folder Inbox from the IMAP e-mail server for account Error: Cannot connect to the server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or ISP."

My settings have not changed. I called Yahoo and they only said they would not support IMAP on a PC. Stinks! I have been using it for over a year and while it works, it did give me multiple errors each day. But the latest error is pervasive and I can't get it to work at all since last night.

Any ideas?

Receiving' reported error (0x80042108) : 'Outlook cannot connect to your incoming mail server?

Try changing incoming mail server from to It worked for me and I have two separate Yahoo mail accounts. I tried it with each one individually and I could only receive when I had changed it. Pretty stupid, really! Why the **** to they have to mess about with POP3 settings?

Outlook 2007. I can receive emails but I cant send them?

If its Yahoo! Mail Plus, these are the instructions. You may need to take note of the Troubleshooting tips.

Incoming mail server settings

POP server:
Port: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings

SMTP server:
Port: 465

Use authentication
Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "", for example, “testing80”)
Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address (for example,
Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

Troubleshooting tips

If you still can’t send Yahoo! Mail from your mail program, you may be accessing the Internet through an ISP that is blocking the SMTP port. If this is the case, try setting the SMTP port number to 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server

I tried setting up my Yahoo mail in Outlook 2007 but it cannot connect to What's wrong?

There are two sets of settings for Yahoo email. The first assumes that you are allowed POP3 access on the FREE accounts. Many of us have to use the PAID Yahoo Mail Plus accounts in order to access POP3 facilities, in which case the second set of settings would apply.

1) Yahoo! Mail Settings

Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (port 110)
Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (port 25)

2) Yahoo! Mail Plus email server settings
Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - (SSL enabled, port 995)
Yahoo Plus Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - (SSL enabled, port 465, use authentication)

If you need to upgrade, go to Options > Mail Plus > Upgrade now > enter your payment details for $19.99 annual fee to complete the process.

My font suddenly appears in all caps on the Outlook of the message recipients, why?

I believe the problem may be due to unexpected styles being applied to the messages you send. Outlook predefines some styles, and one of these applies the all-caps formatting. A simple solution is to send all your e-mail as plain text, in which case the recipient's outlook will render it in a default style (which is unlikely to be all caps). Nowadays many people, however, have begun sending the majority of the e-mail as rich text. This works well, at the cost of a larger filesize, but it depends on both the sender and recipient having the same fonts.To the best of my knowledge, Adobe Garamond Pro is a commercial font. You may have received your licensed copy bundled for free with some Adobe software like Photoshop, InDesign or Illustrator. The font will look great on anything you use it for on your computer, and in PDFs that you create, as long as you embed the font within the PDF file.If the person to whom you send a Word or Outlook document does not have Adobe Garamond Pro installed, however, documents that you create using that font will be rendered on the recipient's computer through some kind of font substitution, maybe appearing in Bookman or Times or some other serif font and even, perhaps, with an all-caps styling randomly thrown in for good measure.Since you cannot require your recipients to instal a particular font, a better idea might be to switch to Georgia for your outgoing e-mail. Georgia, being supplied for free by both Microsoft and Apple, is very likely to already be on your e-mail recipients' computers. Then, your rich text e-mails will be rendered there in the same way as they were when you sent them.Hope this helps you, Bart. Thanks for the A2A.
