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