I recently have a problem with outlook being able to receive

This answer was rated:

I recently have a problem with outlook being able to receive email but not send it. I have checked the settings with Sky (my internet provider) , tried deleting and re-adding the email account, turned off the McAfee firewall on Outlook, tried "repair" using the original instal disc for MS Office, all to no avail. Also the dialogue box "Enter Network Password" repeatedly pops up.
The same email address works online (Sky uses Yahoo), but I am familiar with Outlook so dont want to change.
Can you help?
My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.
I can see that you may need a little bit of extra help.
Do you still need help with this problem? If so, may I start a screen sharing session on your computer and help you resolve the problem?
Thank you.
