IP Address

By stephenlent88 ·
I want to block AOL instant messageing or any AOL activity from my PC. How can I do it? Using Win XP SP2 and IE6 SP2.

Also, I want to setup MS Outlook to get my messages from Yahoo, but I can't find Yahoo's IP address for the Outlook setup.

You can use your firewall to block the AOL activity from the machine. Setup will vary depending on what firewall you are using. If none you can configure Windows Firewall to do it. Let me know what firewall you have.

The only way that i have found to be able to send and receive email through outlook using Yahoo's email is by signing up for there Yahoo Mail Plus! for 19.99 a year. Once you sign your account up for that service they will allow your account POP and SMTP access and you can then set your Outlook up. Yahoo Pop Incoming Server :
Yahoo SMTP Outgoing Mail server :
The username must have as well.

Why not uninstall all AOL related apps from your PC?

go to AOL email preferences, select "privacy" and check "block all" and check "instant messages and individual messages.

Then click OK
