If you want to use Microsoft Office Outlook to send and receive email messages from your Yahoo Mail account, here are the correct IMAP and POP server settings. For IMAP server settings, make sure you have the following configurations entered in Microsoft Office Outlook.

Incoming server IMAP:

  • Server – imap.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port – 993
  • Requires SSL – Yes

Outgoing server SMTP:

  • Server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port – 465 or 587
  • Requires SSL – Yes
  • Requires authentication – Yes

For POP server settings, make sure you have the following configurations entered in Office Outlook.

Incoming server POP:

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

Outgoing server SMTP:

  • Server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port – 465 or 587
  • Requires SSL – Yes
  • Requires TLS – Yes (if available)
  • Requires authentication – Yes

IMAP is the ideal way of getting your email messages using an email client. It allows 2-way synchronizing. This means everything you do remotely is reflected in your Yahoo Mail account. With POP, it downloads copies of your email messages. You can delete or move them in the application without affecting the original email messages.
