They are of two types, incoming and outgoing mail server which are managed by three email protocols; POP, IMAP, and SMTP. Adopting the right server can solve the many problems like Sending Emails Issue with Yahoo.

SMTP is the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol which manages the sending and receiving of emails, and block the address of suspicious recipient when trying to send a malicious message to your account. Due to this reason, it becomes very important to Set up Yahoo SMTP server.

POP and IMAP are used of incoming mail server; however, we can use only one at a time. POP does not allow us to use our account on different devices and email clients, while IMAP syncs our account with the email server and save the changes done in the account using one device and show these changes in every device in which you will logged in. Following are the settings:

Login Information of User

  • Username or Email Id: Your email address (xyz@yahoo.com)

  • Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
