Well, if you are using a business account on Yahoo mail, then you will see the POP3 as it uses that. POP mail accounts work by having the server hold the emails until the email client logs back into the system. When an email client logs in, the data present on the server gets transferred into the computer you’ve installed the email client.

So, it is easier for people to use their mail even when they are facing an internet problem on the system. Yes, Yahoo uses POP settings for their account when you want to connect to the server using email client software.

Here are Yahoo mail server settings:

Incoming Server –

  • Server – pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port – 995
  • Requires SSL – Yes

Outgoing Server –

  • Server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port – 465 or 587
  • Requires SSL – Yes
  • Requires TLS – Yes (if available)
  • Requires authentication – Yes

That’s it, you don’t need Yahoo IMAP settings in order to connect the server using an email client.
