    Default can yahoo work with outlook express?

    is there a way to set up the popular webmails to work with outlook express so they can be under the protection of the zonealarm?
    i hope this isn't a crazy question.
    i ask cause my father just got a bad link in his yahoo mail that gave him some viruses.... the junkmail filter in zonealarm might of caught it.
    tks for your time.

    Yes... well, sort of.B-)
    Let me start by saying that I have both a Yahoo email account and a Google email account (gmail) set up in Outlook Express 6.
    I can send and receive emails using OE6 with either account, no problem.
    Accessing Google email with a POP3 email client is free with their basic service.
    Accessing Yahoo email requires a paid upgrade to their Yahoo Mail Plus! service which is $19.99/year.

    The reason I opened my reply with "sort of" is because I have had an ongoing problem with the ZA junk email filter and OE6 dating back to 2007.
    I seem to be one of a subset of users who have this problem.
    I have been working with ZA tech support and now their Escalation Team to try to identify and resolve the problem.
    I have sent them dump and log files for them to
    investigate.
    This is happening on 2 PCs - a desktop and a laptop both running WinXP Pro.
    In a nutshell, if I enable the ZA junk email filter, it works fine until I either try to forward or reply to an email from within OE6.
    Within seconds of clicking on the "Reply" or "Forward" button in a message, OE6 simply closes (crashes) with no error message.
    You may not see this problem, I don't know.
    All I am saying is that I have to turn the junk email filter off on both my PCs.
