Manual Configuration For Yahoo Pop Settings

check yahoo mail setup through this small guide.

POP is an email protocol that is used for governing the incoming mail server. It does the one-way sync of our email account with the email server due to which we cannot access our email account from different devices and platforms. Therefore, instead of doing yahoo mail pop settings, it is recommended to use IMAP, which is another email protocol used for the incoming mail server. By using POP, if you are logged in to your Yahoo account on different devices and send an email or do any other action using one, then it will not be updated in the other due to the one-way sync with the email server and therefore we cannot use our email account on different platforms.

Following are the yahoomail pop settings:

Incoming Mail Server: POP

  • Server -
  • Port - 995
  • Encryption Required: SSL

Outgoing Mail Server: SMTP

  • Server -
  • Port - 465 or 587
