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:

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.
