Hey guys:

I can't seem to get this right. I go through the Outlook Add Account Wizard and I get this error:

The name on the Security Certificate does not match the name of the site.

Do you want to proceed?

Yes, No, View Certificate

I hit Yes, but, it still doesn't configure properly. It prompts me to retry over and over again.

Any ideas would be great!!!

Thanks

You have to use an IMAP configuration to use Yahoo with Outlook 2013 or upgrade to paid account to use Yahoo and POP3 with Outlook. For IMAP instructions and still stay free see: How to Configure Free Yahoo Accounts In Outlook

Thanks to Diane Poremsky Outlook MVP @ This Link

Maybe it's just me, but, I can't register with izzymail at all. I downloaded and installed YPop, but, I don't know how to configure it and there aren't any clear directions??? Maybe this is a waist of time?? I don't know.

I don't have Outlook or use Yahoo so I'm not able to do any testing to help you further. Maybe someone more familiar with Yahoo mail or Outlook 2013 can add something.
