Find below the basic POP3 settings that you need to configure in the email program where you want to access Yahoo mails.
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: (Use SSL, port: 995)
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
  • Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the “”)
  • Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g.,
  • Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password
Note that you also need to enable “Web & POP Access” on your Yahoo Mail account to send and receive Yahoo! Mail messages through any other email program.

  • Log on to your Yahoo mail account
  • If you’re using the new Yahoo Mail interface, Click “Options” in the upper-right corner of the page, then choose “More Options…” from the pull-down menu and On the left side of the page, select the “POP & Forwarding” option. If you’re using the original Mail interface, click “Mail Options” in the upper-right corner of the page, then click the “POP and Forwarding” link on the left.
  • On the “Pop and Forwarding” page, choose the “Allow your Yahoo! Mail to be POPed” option. You can instead choose to forward your emails to an external email account by choosing the option “Forward your Yahoo! Mail” and specifying the external email address. But you can’t simultaneously Forward and POP your mail. Also note that forwarded mail skips your Yahoo! Mail Inbox entirely and goes straight to the new address you designate.
