How to setup Yahoo mail on Outlook 2016


How to setup Yahoo mail on Outlook 2016. This video will help you with the steps to perform while you setup your Outlook 2016 for Yahoo mail.

These steps also apply for:
Outlook 365

Outlook 2007

Here is the information that you can use to setup which is mentioned during the video:

Account type: IMAP
Incoming mail server:
Outgoing mail server (SMTP):

Incoming server (IMAP): 993 or 143
Incoming server encrypted connection: SSL
Outgoing server (SMTP): 587 or 465
Outgoing server encrypted connection: TLS or Auto

Difference between IMAP and POP3:

POP stands for Post Office Protocol, and was designed as a simple way to access a remote email server. The most recent version is POP 3, and is supported by virtually all email clients and servers.

POP works by downloading your emails from your provider’s mail server, and then marking them for deletion there. This means you can only ever read those email messages in that email client, on that computer. You will not be able to access any previously downloaded emails from any other device, or with any other email client, or through webmail.

IMAP stands for Internet Message Access Protocol, and was designed specifically to eliminate the limitations of POP.

IMAP allows you to access your emails from any client, and any device, and webmail login at any time, until you delete them. You are always seeing the same emails, no matter how you access your provider’s server.

Since your email is stored on the provider’s server and not locally, you may run into email storage limits, when using IMAP.
