POP3 adapter - help RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

          I am going though the MSDN docs and trying out the POP3 adapter. I am followign the steps located at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa578201(v=BTS.70).aspx

    Since I didn't see the POP3 Services in my "Administrative Tools" menu, I thought I could use Yahoo POP3 server  "pop.mail.yahoo.com". I have an account on yahoo and tried with it.

    I get the following error. Can anyone help me get past this error either usign YAHOO POP3 server or anything other way of setting up POP3 on my machine?

    Error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 98.136.131.202:110

    Thanks everyone,

  • Hi,

    To setup your email client for working with your Yahoo account, you need to select the POP3 protocol and use the following mail server settings: Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 465). So you need to configure your POP3 appropiately in receive location, with setting Mail Server, Port, Authentication Scheme, and probably password and SSL Setting (i.e. True).

  • For POP3 services you have to make sure that you have installed and configured the Email Services component on your Server.

    As far as Yahoo is concerned you need to make sure that the port is right, think yahoo pop3 works with 465.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

           I've tried with the following settings in the POP3 receive location:

    Apply MIME Decoding =True
    Body Part Content Type = blank/no value
    Body Part Index =0
    Mail Server =pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Port =465 
    Authentication Schema == Basic
    password = ********
    Use SSL = true
    Username=myemail@yahoo.com

    I still get the error the following error(same as earlier):

    "The adapter "POP3" raised an error message. Details "The POP3 adapter could not establish a connection with the POP3 server. This could be due to the following reasons:

    1) The POP3 server host and port information is incorrect.

    2) The POP3 server is not running or is not reachable due to network issues.

    URL: POP3://pop.mail.yahoo.com#myemail@yahoo.com

    Error: No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it 98.136.131.202:465 ".

     

    Is there anything else I could be missing? Anything related to firewall settings?

    Thanks in advance for all the help.
