How to configure Yahoo Mail in Outlook ?


Take note of that all Yahoo mail accounts are eligible for IMAP or POP access without making any progressions to your online account. In Gmail, you need to explicitly go in and empower POP or IMAP before it will work. With Yahoo, it's recently empowered constantly, which presumably isn't something to be thankful for as far as security, yet there's very little we can do about that.  

Presently open Outlook account and tap on File and afterward tap on the Add Account link. On the following screen, don't be enticed to tap on Email Account since I officially attempted that and it doesn't work. For Yahoo, you need to manually type every one of the settings, which is an agony, so tap on Manual setup or extra server sorts. Then tap on the POP or IMAP alternative and hit Next button. The following section is the most essential part of the procedure. Here type the greater part of the Yahoo account server and sign-in info - enter your name and full email address. Pick IMAP for Account Type. Presently copy and paste the accompanying esteems for the suitable fields:


-          In incoming email server -

-          In outgoing email server -


Under the Logon Info, ensure you utilize your full email id and type your password. Take note of that in the event that you have two-consider empowered on your Yahoo Mail account, you'll have to create an application password as opposed to utilizing your ordinary Yahoo mail account password. Then check the Require logon utilizing Secure Password Authentication box and after that tap on the More Settings option.


Here, we need to roll out several changes. Firstly, tap on the Outgoing Server link and ensure the My active server require confirmation box is checked. At that point tap on Advanced tab. Now we need to change the IMAP port to 993 and the SMTP port to 465, you can choose. Then you have to pick SSL for the sort of encrypted association for both outgoing and incoming. Click OK and afterward Outlook ought to automatically begin a mail test.


It will attempt to sign into your email server and after that send a text message. In the event that everything is arranged accurately, you ought to see some green checkmarks. If not, backpedal and ensure you written in everything effectively, including your password.


It's as simple as that! You should now have the ability to access your Yahoo Mail account on your desired email customer and have it synchronized to the majority of your gadgets if you utilize IMAP.
