Yahoo is the typical account that is accessed by web, mail access via POP3 only available in your Bill Pay, Yahoo Plus, which is a bit … well … if you want to configure access through your own client mail but … no problem, you can do for IMAP.

Sure this information is on the website of Yahoo, the fact is that I learned a few years ago and this week we have been asked several times, so we put it here for interest.

The automatic settings may fail because usually try to access the POP3 server, but passwords give error, not user “plus”. Besides a restriction that only allows access Yahoo via IMAP to mobile, we mediente access yahoo mobile servers. In any case, are those indicated.

IMAP Server: imap.m.mail.yahoo.com
SMTP Server: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com

You can also count as IMAP imap server-ssl.mail.yahoo.com
The user is what precedes the @ in the e-mail. For a user’s email user user@yahoo.com
You have some screenshots from Mail.app

In the data below you will find you have the option of configuring route via IMAP and POP, if you usually stay connected to the Internet I recommend IMAP if you conectáis sporadically now to download new mail, the best option is POP.

Yahoo SMTP settings

You can use your Yahoo Mail account to send emails also from an email client such as Thunderbird or Outlook, using Yahoo’s own SMTP server.

The setup process is extremely easy. You simply need to open the SMTP server options window

and complete the fields with Yahoo SMTP service details, these are:

  1. Yahoo SMTP Server Address: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  2. Yahoo SMTP username: Your Yahoo! Mail account
  3. Yahoo SMTP Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password
  4. Yahoo SMTP port: 25 or 465

However, we should emphasize that Yahoo’s SMTP service is offered with a strict limit of 500 outgoing emails per day (and each message can be sent to up to 100 recipients), to prevent spammers from using it to send spam.
