Yahoo Email Settings - Yahoo SMTP Server Settings

Sending or receiving emails using your email account is very common in taking forward your business operations or being responsive to any communication. But it is equally frustrating when the email suffers from a malfunctioning that may be attributed to your email’s incoming or outgoing settings.

I also encountered the same issue with my Yahoo email account where I could not send or receive emails. Consequently, on troubleshooting this issue, I found that for Yahoo mail to function in an impeccable manner, its outgoing mail settings in the form of Yahoo SMTP server settings and the incoming mail settings, IMAP and POP are needed to be fixed.

And, that there are five different parameters on which SMTP, IMAP or POP settings are to be checked and altered if necessary. So here is a quick look as to how these relevant settings can be fixed. 

Yahoo SMTP (Outgoing) Settings

SMTP stands for Simple Mail Transfer Protocol that is predominantly a set of commands that is used every time with the mail server to send an outgoing mail to the recipient.

Many a time your Yahoo account or application may not have been configured with the latest SMTP settings matrix thereby hindering the mail sending process.

To fix this, you should review SMTP settings of your account and must finally set the Yahoo SMTP server settings matrix as given hereunder.

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

Yahoo IMAP (incoming) Settings

IMAP stand for Internet Access Message Protocol and that is primarily a set of codes used every time with the mail server to receive an incoming mail to the recipient. Occasionally, your Yahoo account or application may not have been configured with the latest IMAP eventually causing obstruction to the reception of mail from different senders.

To fix this, you should review IMAP settings of your Yahoo account and must finally set the Yahoo IMAP settings matrix as given hereunder. IMAP is fast and efficient as compared to POP and as it stores your emails on the server itself, you are advised to have a reliable internet connection for accessing the emails all the time.

Yahoo POP (incoming) Settings

POP stands for Post Office Protocol that basically allows you to download the emails received that you can view anytime without having any need to be online. You should check and finally set the POP settings matrix given hereunder.
