    How do I setup an account for rediff,yahoo,gmail in Outlook express 6 i jus' need the incoming and outgoing servers and type of account (pop3 or etc)
    and also what's a server port number for SMTP and POP3 in this case?
    and what other things need to be done so that i needn't go to all the websites and check for my mails. I want everything to be here in Outlook itself (both sending and receiving mails)

    Rediff , Yahoo, Gmail doesnt offer POP3 service for freee.. You will need some third party tools like YahooPops & Eprompter to use it .. But it will void your terms of use ... Use at your own cost ...

    Well if you are talking about free mail service you cannot get mails on outlook experss except hotmail. If you are using paid service consult the service provider for more information.

    With yahoo i saw one program in digit cd somthing like http2pop
    i dont remember that and never tried ,
    other tachi's might post if they have tried.

    What it_waaznt_me says if perfectly right.

    But you can still use www.Softhome.net, www.HotPOP.com, etc. with Outlook Express. They provide free POP3 service. :)

    Also try out www.fastmail.fm they provide IMAP. So you can still use Outlook Express for mails.

    HotPOP does not work since hotmail brought the payment mode in for POP access

    Eh? Whats HotPOP got to do with hotmail? I am using hotpop regularly and it works without problems.

    As regards MyRealBox, I am using that too ;). But I have heard that they have stopped more signups. At least I couldn't see any signup links on the main page. But you can check it out. Actually, it is a gratuitious service provided by Novell to test some of their applications.
