Yahoo e-mails pulled over to Outlook, how do I reverse this?

Not open for further replies.


I signed up for a free 60-day trial of MS Office Professional 2007 because was taking an on-line Excel class & needed Access for one module. I already have MS Home & Student 2007 so wasn't planning on buying it.

I already have a yahoo e-mail account but used Outlook because it seems to be the default for a lot of websites. One I used Outlook once, it began pulling all my e-mail from yahoo into Outlook! Now the 60 day trial is about to expires and I'm afraid I'm going to lose a lot of e-mail.

Is there a way to send it back to my yahoo account? Will it actually vanish once my free trial expires?

Thanks for helping!

When emails are downloaded by outlook, the mails and other outlook data are stored in the file with a .PST extension, you can open this file in any computer with office 2007 or later, even if they were created on a computer that had trial version of office .

Take a back up of your data by following the steps in the article How to manage.PST files in Outlook 2007, in Outlook 2003, and in Outlook 2002

Make the following changes to you outlook account configuration so that only a copy of the mail from the yahoo server is downloaded:

1. Tools>> Email accounts/Accounts>>Email TAB

2. Select the email account>> Change>>More settings BUTTON>>Advanced TAB>> Under delivery ensure thatLeave a copy of messages on the server is checked

Best of luck !!!
