E-Mail Stationery in Yahoo Mail with
You can configure Yahoo Mail so that Outlook Express can be used
to send and receive
messages on your Yahoo Mail account. When you do this you are still also able to access your
Yahoo Mail account online (via your web browser.)
Accessing a Yahoo Mail account through
Outlook Express has a number of advantages:
You can keep a
amount of e-mail without overflowing the storage available to you at Yahoo.
You can read your
messages "offline". I.e. you can read them while your computer is
not connected to the Internet.
E-Mail stationery will work. Most
e-mail stationery uses "scripting", which is not supported by
Yahoo Mail online (when you use Yahoo Mail in your web browser.) When you view the
same messages in Outlook Express instead, you can see them as intended.
If you already access your Yahoo Mail
account this way, and you are not seeing received stationery correctly in
Outlook Express, please click on one of the following links for more information
about your version of Outlook Express:
Express 5 and 5.5
