Yahoo is a leading email client used by millions of people around the world. Whenever we want to access our email, we have to open our browser, go to the Yahoo login page and then login to our account, this whole process is very time consuming and wastes a significant amount of time when you frequently need to visit your email account. Therefore, in order to avoid the time wastage, you should do Yahoo mail settings for outlook as Outlook is a desktop software so you need not to go through the same login process again and again. By using it as your email client, you will be just a click away from your inbox and can save a lot of time of yours.

So as to get started using Yahoo in Outlook you have to do IMAP/POP server settings of Yahoo. As Outlook is a third-party email client for Yahoo, therefore you have to manually configure the email account so that it works properly and you do not face any issues while sending and receiving emails.

So, let’s get started and see what these settings are.


Yahoo Mail Server Settings

While doing Yahoo mail settings for outlook there are two different ways from which we have to choose one. One is choosing IMAP for account type and the other is using POP instead of IMAP. These are used for monitoring the incoming mail server, the only difference between these is that IMAP lets you use your email account in different devices and email clients by doing the two-way sync, while POP does not allow you to do that. Therefore, it is recommended to use IMAP settings over POP while doing IMAP/POP server settings of Yahoo.
