I am not quite sure what you want to do. Outlook Express is a mail client that allows you to dowload your Email to your computer and read it there, using a POP Email setting. If you only have OE on your computer, it will be the default Email POP application.
Yahoo, in it's various flavours, is an Email provider, as well as in some cases, an ISP. Normal Yahoo Email accounts are readable only on the web unless you pay a nominal fee.
Redirecting Email from one service to another is possible in many cases, if that is what you want to do.
Please provide a concrete example of precisely what you want to change and I am sure we can help you.
Regards,
John

This seems to be a problem with some kind of default on your league page or the Email settings THERE. I suggest you browse there to see if you can find some member settings, etc., that you can change, or ask for help from some other member of the league. In the meantime, you could always cut and paste addresses into your Yahoo Email Address book, and bypass the problem entirely.
Hope this helps SOME,
Regards,
John

I think you have to buy the premium version of Yahoo Mail for Outlook or Outlook Express to be functional with it.

Otherwise you have to use Yahoo's webmail.

If out look doesn't work. It's because it wasn't set up right to begin with. The first time you use it you go thru a wizard to set up an account. If you'r using any email account other then hotmail which is a pop mail account. then you have to specify what type it is. And you have to find that out from you'r email provider. Go to you email provider and they should be able to help you restore outlook to work for you.
