How to Use a Free Yahoo Mail Account with Outlook with IMAP

E-mail Print PDF

Yahoo opened up IMAP so you can setup your Yahoo Mail account on a mobile device. The relevant settings are here. The same settings can be used in Outlook to sync mail. Here's how you set up a free Yahoo Mail account to work with Outlook via IMAP:

  1. Go to File -> Account Settings -> E-mail -> New.
  2. Choose E-mail Account.
  3. Select Manually configure server settings or additional server types.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Choose Internet E-mail.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Fill out the form as you see below. Make sure to replace Your Name with the display name you want and replace This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with your full e-mail address. Having the yahoo.com part is important.

  1. Click More Settings … and fill out the Advanced and Outgoing Server tabs as you see in the two screenshots below.

  1. Click Ok, Next, Finish, etc… to complete the setup.

I've been having trouble syncing folders that were added to the Yahoo Mail account. Only the default folders such as Inbox seem to actually work.

Hi! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you
know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone
4. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might
be able to resolve this problem. If you have any recommendations , please share.
Many thanks!

Do you have a spam problem on this blog; I also am a blogger,
and I was wondering your situation; we have created some nice methods and we
are looking to trade solutions with others, why not shoot me an e-mail if
interested.

I finally got mine working by following your link. I swapped from "IMAP" to "POP3" and it worked for me. Thanks guys for your kind efforts at helping novices like me. I appreciate the efforts you put in. Thanks.

Mine worked for like three days and stopped working. I have followed all the advice on this page to no avail. I use to use yahoo plus on my outlook 3007 several years ago. Is this why it stopped working?

This website http://www.setup-outlook.com may also be useful since it shows you how to setup any email with any version of outlook.
