Yahoo Email Server Settings

Yahoo gives you the opportunity to set its server both in IMAP and POP settings. POP or Post Office Protocol is an older version of protocol which helps to download emails from the server directly to the application. On the other hand, IMAP or Internet Message Access Protocol is a newer protocol which allows you to remotely access and manage all of your emails from different devices.

POP Server Settings for Yahoo Email:

POP is the one-way sender and receiver of the Yahoo email both in desktop and mobile app. You can access, view, move or delete any mail without hampering the main server. But you can’t have the record of the sent mail as it will not save on the server. Please follow the steps to configure the POP server settings for Yahoo mail.       

Incoming Mail (POP) Server

  • Server – pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port – 995
  • Requires SSL – Yes

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server

  • Server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port – 465 or 587

  • Requires TLS – Yes (if available)
  • Requires authentication – Yes

Your login info

If you want to discontinue your POP protocol then you have to remove the POP settings from your Yahoo account.
