Yahoo Mail is the web-based mail client provided by the popular search engine, Yahoo. Yahoo Mail organizes the email of all Yahoo users and guarantees that users have a way to receive notifications from Yahoo concerning their services and activities. Yahoo Mail is similar to Gmail and Windows Live Mail and is compatible with a number of websites and email clients, including Windows Outlook.
What Is Outlook
Windows Outlook is a desktop-based email client for Windows that is included in Windows Office and allows users to manage email accounts from a variety of different providers. Outlook is advantageous because it allows users to download messages from multiple email accounts into one inbox and respond to messages using the appropriate email address.
How To Download Yahoo Mail Into Outlook
Users can download Yahoo mail into Outlook by opening Outlook, selecting “Email Accounts” from the Tools menu, and selecting “Add New Email Account”. You can then select “POP3”, click Next, enter your email address, server information (pop.mail.yahoo.com for POP3 and smtp.mail.yahoo.com for SMTP), and all other user information.
You can then select the Advanced tab and change the POP3 number to “995” and the SMPTP number to “465”. You should then ensure that “Log-in Requires Authentication” is unchecked, click OK, and Finish. Outlook should then start downloading all messages from your Yahoo Mail account.
Note: A Yahoo Mail Plus account may be required.
