What you might do is .in outlook , go to ACCOUNTS and there you can specify what mail account you want
This should work for most OS's

If you go into your outlook you go to options and setup your yahoo address as a POP account and make it your default mail server.

What email program did you use for Yahoo? I ask that first before I tell you how you can fix Outlook. If he was not using Outlook, then there's no reason to even mess with it. If you used another program, it's a simple fix of setting your system priority defaults on which programs are used for which type of application. When using Yahoo mail were you using Outlook or what?

thanks but i got it with a simple search on yahoo. i use firefox so it was just a matter of going into the options menu, and finding it from there. i think i'm all fixed up. and i have never used outlook i have always used yahoo mail.
