    1) What OS are you running? I'm assuming XP and Outlook Express 6, but some more info might help.
    2) Do you have control over the firewall and have you opened the ports to allow POP?

    I have win 2k Operating system.
    Yahoo mails are blocked in office and i had been accessing them through ypops. I use to download them to oulook using this application, however lately office server has been put behind firewall and i am not able to acess them anymore. It shows error no: 0X800ccc0f.
    Pls let me know if i can go behind the firewall to access my mails.
    thank you.

    If there is a firewall at a higher level than your PC that filters your internet connection before your PC reaches the traffic, it may not be possible.

    Try contacting your IT support and explain your case, but if it is for personal use they may not allow it considering they probably blocked it for a reason :)
