Yahoo! Mail is a free and premium email service with over 225 million active monthly users offered by Yahoo, Inc. The service offers four different email plans: three for personal use (Basic, Plus, and Ad-Free) and another for businesses.

Yahoo.com Email Settings

We have published the server settings for your convenience. These can be used by any mail software that supports IMAP, POP, and SMTP.

Yahoo.com IMAP Settings

With Yahoo.com IMAP, you can not only receive but enjoy two-way syncing of your Yahoo.com email account inbox and the related folders. IMAP is ideal if you need to access your emails from multiple devices such as Outlook, mobile phone, webmail, etc.

These are the IMAP settings for Yahoo! Mail:

  • Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port: 993
  • Requires SSL: Yes
  • Username: [Your full email address]
  • Password: [Your Yahoo! Mail password]

Yahoo.com POP Settings

Yahoo.com POP is the protocol that allows you to retrieve incoming emails from your Yahoo.com email account. POP is an email protocol that is good if you want to retrieve incoming emails on a single device. It does not support two-way syncing like IMAP. For this reason, Brightwhiz recommends that you use IMAP whenever possible.
