    First you'll need to enable the way (POP or IMAP) you want to connect to your account in Yahoo

    You will need to enable POP in Yahoo:
    1 - Log in to Yahoo
    2 - Click on the Configuration button at the top of the page
    3 - Select Mail Options

     

    Next configure Outlook accordingly - if using 2 factor authentication, follow the steps related to the that in the first article

    Outlook account settings apply to any version of Outlook - nothing unique to OL'2007
