Hi Jim, thanks for your patience sir and my apologies for not getting back with you yesterday, as I did not have the solution to the Yahoo email set up issue you were having.
I believe however, that now I may have the answer to the issue with your Yahoo! email not working in Entourage.
Below are steps with screen shots to have you try in order to get your Yahoo! email working in Entourage 2008 correctly:
1) Make sure Entourage 2008 is open then on the menu bar at the top of the screen, select Tools
from the drop down menu.
2.) Now on the Accounts box that pops up, go ahead and delete the Yahoo email if it is there. If there is no Yahoo email account there, go to step 3.
3.) With no email listed, go ahead and click on the New icon on the left
4.) Now you should see the Set Up a Mail Account
5.) Enter your Yahoo! email address in the email address box
6.) Now click the small arrow on the bottom right to go to the next page
7.) On the 2nd page, you should see Automatic Configuration Succeeded
8.) If you do, go ahead and now click the arrow at the bottom right corner of the window to go to Page# XXXXX
9.) On the 3rd page, fill out your email information just as you see in this screen shot:
10.) Once you have completely filled the Verify and Complete Settings
page, go ahead and click the Configure Account Manually
11.) On the Edit Account
window that pops up first change the Account name from "Untitled E-mail account
" to your name
Then go to the long button you see under the Sending mail section entitled "Click here for advanced sending options
" (highlighted in red box)
12.) You will see this small window pop up. All you need to do here Jim, is make sure
you see that the box is checked for "SMTP servers requires authentication
" is selected. Also make sure the radio button entitled: "Use same settings as receiving server"
is also selected.
13.) Once you have confirmed this, just click your mouse anywhere outside that little window and it will disappear, returning you back to the Edit Account window.
14.) No click the Ok button and you should now see the original Accounts
window appear, but this time, it should show that your Yahoo! username with (IMAP) next to it:
15.) Close out of the Accounts window and Quit Entourage 2008
16.) Now relaunch Entourage and check to see if your Yahoo! email starts populating emails and shows all of your folders are in place in the sidebar:
If it does populate your email details: Success! you are now back to an Entourage with your Yahoo email now in place as it used to be.
If you do not however see this, just let me know. I will be here watching for your updates.
This I believe, is the resolution you are seeking... Keep me posted sir!
