My Windows Live Mail and Issues with my Yahoo! Account

I am having trouble with YahooPops and Yahoo! Mail account. I download and install the software and use my LATEST version of Windows Live Mail. After that I keep getting error messages. I use pop3, smtp 127.0.0.1 and my username as eg. ccccc@yahoo.com I enter the full address, even the @yahoo part too. It asks to check authenticate option in the settings so I did. I even tried changing my zone to Asia because I heard some people on the message board there talking about it. That didn't work. I get my gmail to work but why does Yahoo! have to be so complex? Anyway, if anyone can assist, please let me know.

127.0.0.1? Thats localhost, no wonder it wont work. You need to find the correct smtp address.

Ypops is a kludge to receive POP3 email from Yahoo without paying for the Plus account.
From what I've heard, Yahoo keeps trying to prevent this.

Pay the $20/yr and you can use any email program to access their POP3 server.
