Use Yahoo Mail in a POP email app

Enable POP to read, write, and store email in the app of your choice, like Outlook or Mac Mail.

  POP vs. IMAP - POP only lets you access your Yahoo Mail Inbox - not other folders (like Trash and Spam) or their contents. If you want to access emails from every folder, use IMAP instead.

Step 1: Enable Yahoo Mail for POP access

Turn on POP access in your Yahoo Mail Settings to begin.

  1. In Yahoo Mail, mouse over the Settings icon | Click Settings.
  2. Click Accounts.
  3. Under Email addresses, click on your Yahoo account name.
  4. Go to the bottom of the page under “Access your Yahoo Mail elsewhere” | Select POP.
  5. Click Save.

Step 2: Set up Yahoo Mail in your POP client

Use the Yahoo Mail server settings and app-specific instructions below to complete the process.
