    Hello,

    Do you want to check your Yahoo Mail from multiple devices and keep them in sync?

    Here are the directions to configure IMAP access to your Yahoo account:
    • Incoming Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com, Port: 993 (requires SSL)
    • Outgoing Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com, Port: 465 (requires SSL) OR port 587 (requires SSL/TLS)
    Yahoo Business Mail users need to use this outgoing server setting - smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com Port 465 (Requires SSL + Authentication)

    Yahoo Mail uses your full email address as your login name.

    Here are the SMTP settings that are currently working for Yahoo Mail:

    Those are not names that you can go to with your web browser, they are settings that can be used in a mail program on your computer such as Mozilla Thunderbird.

    Update! Yahoo is disabling the non-SSL versions of their services!

    Port 143 for IMAP access will stop working soon.

    You must use port 993 + SSL for Yahoo IMAP access.
