How to access Yahoo! Mail using Microsoft Outlook

SHARE & COMMENT

Yahoo mail and Microsoft Outlook

You can use Microsoft Outlook with many email accounts. Most Email providers such as Google’s Gmail, Microsoft’s Hotmail and many other providers provide free POP and SMTP access which allows you to use and integrate all your Email Accounts using Microsoft’s Outlook Express. The only exception is Yahoo’s Yahoo! Mail. In this day and age it is really unfortunate that Yahoo does not provide free POP and STMP access to the users of its free Yahoo! mail.

Note: Yahoo does provide free POP and SMTP access to its premium Yahoo! Mail Plus which requires a paid subscription. If you are one of those who has a Yahoo! mail Plus account, scroll down to the bottom of this article on how you can access Yahoo! Mail using Microsoft Outlook.

Note: If you are using Microsoft Outlook 2010, scroll to the bottom of the article for configuring Outlook 2010 to use Yahoo! Mail

How to access Yahoo! Mail using Microsoft Outlook

Step 1: Download YPOPs
You need to download a small application called YPOPs. YPOPs is an application that provides POP3 and SMTP access to Yahoo! Mail. YPOPs acts as a gateway between Yahoo! Mail and Microsoft Outlook. For those who opted for the new Yahoo Mail beta are good too to use this to access Yahoo! mail using Outlook. Download YPOPs from SourceForge.

Step 2: Install YPOPs.

When configuring YPOPs, while the default settings are pretty good, I like to customize them a bit.

* In Receiving Email, under download Email Category, I choose to select just Unread email to download so that I won’t download all the hundreds of emails I have.

* In Sending Email, I check Save email in Yahoo’s Sent Items Folder

* In Miscellaneous, it is good to check Automatically start YPOPs! when Windows starts so that you don’t have to worry about launching it everytime you launch Microsoft Outlook.

YPOPs configuration settings for Yahoo! Mail

Step 3: Configure Microsoft Outlook to access Yahoo! Mail

* For Microsoft Outlook 2003, Go to Tools –> Email Accounts.  Select Add a new email account. Click Next.  Check POP3 and click on Next

* For Microsoft Outlook 2007 or 2010, go to Tools –> Account Settings and under Email click New… Under Add a new Email Account select Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP, or HTTP. Then under Add new Email account, check Manually configure server settings or additional server types* Type your name under Your Name

NOTE: If you are using Microsoft Outlook 2010, go to Step 4 directly. Everyone else, please follow instructions below.

* Type in your Yahoo! Mail address under Email Address which is the full youremail@yahoo.com

* Under Incoming mail server (POP3) type in localhost.  (If localhost does not work type in 127.0.0.1 instead)

* Under Outgoing mail server (SMTP) type in localhost. (If localhost does not work type in 127.0.0.1 instead)

* Under Username type in your Yahoo! Mail address. For example if your email address is asmith2233@yahoo.com, then type in asmith2233. Enter your Yahoo! Mail password and check remember the password

Yahoo! mail using Microsoft Outlook settings

* Click More settings. Under Outgoing Server tab check My outgoing server(SMTP) requires authentication

* Click OK and then Next and then click Finish

Yahoo! Mail configured for Outlook Express

Update Step 4:

Configure Yahoo Mail using Microsoft Outlook 2010

For Microsoft Outlook 2010, select IMAP from the drop down box above the incoming mail settings box.

  • For Incoming mail: imap.n.mail.yahoo.com
  • For Outgoing mail: smtp.mail.yahoo.com

Click More settings

  • Under Outgoing Server tab check: My outgoing server(SMTP) requires authentication
  • Under advanced tab, using Server port numbers for:
  • incoming server (IMAP) 143 with NONE for type of encrypted connection
  • outgoing server (SMTP) 587 with NONE for type of encrypted connection

  4. Actually, Yahoo has always provided FREE POP access – just not to US accounts.  If you want to get it for free (and who doesn’t?), simply join a foreign Yahoo like Australia’s: yahoo.com.au  POP3 will work well on Outlook.  I’ve used it for over a decade.

  6. I’m using Outlook 2010 to open Yahoo! free email account
    Try this setting below, it works…

    Select “IMAP” from the drop down box above the Incoming Mail settings box.

    Incoming mail:
    imap.n.mail.yahoo.com

    Outgoing mail:
    smtp.mail.yahoo.com

    Click More settings
    .
    Under Outgoing Server tab check: My outgoing server(SMTP) requires authentication

    Under advanced tab, using Server port numbers for:

    incoming server (IMAP) 143 with NONE for type of encrypted connection

    outgoing server (SMTP) 587 with NONE for type of encrypted connection

    This worked for me!

  7. Hi guys,

    I have just synced 2 of my yahoo accounts to outlook 2007. The first one worked fine after i enabled the POP3 option in Yahoo Mail more options. But it didn’t work right away with the other account. When i checked the difference I saw that the 2nd account was registered in the Yahoo US regional site. Unfortunately, Yahoo US will REQUIRE you to upgrade to Yahoo Mail Plus. When I changed my account settings to Yahoo Philippines the POP3 option was enabled and I successfully synced it as well in Outlook.

    My advise is to use another regional site. Try Yahoo Philippines or Yahoo Singapore. I know for sure those two sites works.

    Hope this helps.

  8. I tried to download application for MS2003. When I download there is winzip file opens showing all files .I saved in my folder on my laptop .However ICON does not appear in system ray or elsewhwre so I cannot configure.

    Please give me instructions. I am having MS OUTLOOK2003 on my laptop

  9. Cont.
    On the Outgoing mail: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Incoming Server (POP3): 995
    Outgoing Server (SMTP): 587
    “None” for type of encrypted connection

    There you go. no more pop up asking for password either

  10. I combined all of the Methods above and here is the solution. FYI, I have windows 7, microsoft office 2007, and free yahoo account.

    Log into yahoo email account and click under “Hi, your name” and click on “Account Information”.

    Under “Account Setting” and “Set language, site, and time zone” change “Regional Site and Language” to “Yahoo!Asia” then click save.

    Go back to mail and on right hand side click “Options” –> “Mail Options” –>”Pop & Fowarding” and check “Allow your Yahoo! mail to be POPed” and make sure to click “save changes” right on top of “Pop & Fowarding”.

    On your outlook under incoming mail : pop.mail.yahoo.com

  11. Try this:

    Go to your yahoo account, change your profile to Yahoo! Asia on Account Settings. This should add another feature in the mail options. Next, you need to tick the “Allowed POP/ Forwarding” option.
    Save the changes.

    Then open your Outlook.
    Go to Tools > Account Settings

    Use these:

    Incoming mail:
    pop.mail.yahoo.com
    Outgoing mail:
    smtp.mobile.yahoo.com

    Click More settings.

    – Outgoing Server tab: check My outgoing server(SMTP) requires authentication
    Under advanced tab, using Server port numbers for
    incoming server (POP3) 995, check “This server requires encrypted connection”
    outgoing server (SMTP) 587. set to “None” for type of encrypted connection

    Close that More Settings window.

    Click “Test Account Settings” to run a test, and click Next when you’re done.

    Hope this helps

  12. Enable POP with free yahoo account.
    Go to the yahoo profile and change your zone to Yahoo! Asia.
    Now go back and try to access POP settings…it works
    I guess Yahoo have no faith in azn $$$$. dumbsluts

  13. Some clarifications. Now( I’m not sure since when) is is not possibel to enable POP an forwarding to you free yahoomail account unless you upgrade to yahoo plus. I have tried Y pops many time with both 2007 and now with 2010 outlook. but is just not working. I always receive a error message.

  14. hello,
    first thing i`d like to add 2 simple steps to solve this problem once and for all(i haven`t read all the post,so someone could have already written this) without needind to install YPOPs or any other program….the tutorial that i followed is for Outlook 2007,but i used it for outlook 2003 and it worked perfectly….
    so this is the first step
    STEP 1http://www.khimhoe.net/2009/06/20/how-to-enable-pop3-in-yahoo-mail/

    STEP 2
    http://www.khimhoe.net/2009/09/01/how-to-setup-yahoo-mail-in-outlook-2007/

    If you follow these 2 steps exactly,then the problem is solved.
    I wish you good luck!

    • Hi,

      Like everyone else I tried to search for these settings almost everywhere but couldn’t find any working. But the above settings surely worked very well with my Outlook 2007.

      Thank You mate for the working settings for Yahoo! Mail Free to work with Outlook….

      Fahad

    • with all the bullshit on this forum only one guy (IKa) knows what to do…………… i followed your instructions and my outlook is working………. thanks man………… and by the way who the hell is this masoud?

  17. i’ve tried it. it didn’t work.
    i use a yahoo.co.uk account.
    it always gives me a send and receive error.
    i think the problem is from the proxy settings in the ypop.
    cab anyone help???

  18. I am able to send but not able to receive emails with ypops on outlook 2007.
    Any suggestions?
    Error msg says timed out.
    Also sent message stays in outbox though the receiver receives it.

    • go into outlook and change email accounts, then into more settings- advanced, where it says server timeout slide it over all the way to long it will say 10 minutes. that should fix your timeout issues. I have same problem except that when i download ypops there is no install icon

    • There is no optiont in yahoo optiont to enable pop forwarding unless you have YPlus. And if you have YPlus then there is nothing to worry. The point is to do this with the help of YPOPs!!

  19. I tried also my best all what you have saud to do.

  46. please help me solve this problem (sent test massage error..blah.. blah.. please check the email field.i already check n everything OK but still cannot sent the email.

  47. My renewal for yahoo plus expired so I decided to create another yahoo account and see if ypops would work before I paid the 20.00bucks. well I went to the ypops site and and got slammed with trojan viruses yesterday. Lucky I had just made an image of my pc a few days ago so I could reload my system. I did read on the ypops site that they are soon to come out with the next version and are just working on the the glitches due to yahoo making a lot of changes to their email programs. Ypops mentioned that their current version may have problems sending email. I couldn’t wait for the new release and sure don’t want another virus so I paid yahoo the damn 20 bucks.i

  48. Here’s a login solution that’s solved am issue when loggin in to remote sites without lowering your internet explorer security settings. The fix was adding the website to IE ‘s trusted sites and unchecking the https only box. It’s worth a try. I’ve received pop up messages in the past from Yahoo saying to enter thier domain name into my trusted sties zone. Couldn’t hurt.

  49. This may be a little deep and a shot in the dark but for authentication problems with remote sites you should take into consideration that your not on the same domain that there servers are on. The initial connection is made but sometimes when a remote server tries to responsed back to you it only knows the users in their local domain. For them to reach you go to your tcpip interenet connection setting and append there dns suffix (which is there domain name “yahoo.com”) under your tcpip properties, advanced, dns settings and also check the boxss to register your connection with dns. I use to access yahoo a long time ago with outlook. I had to configure outlook by entering more than just my username in the username field. So try this: For User Name: yourusername/pop.mail.yahoo.com
    and for the password: Yourpassword
    Read between the lines and don’t literally enter “Yourpassword”
    Good luck.

  50. For those that get a password error you should go to your internet explorer “tools” “options” and open the “Security” tab and check your log on settings by clicking on the internet site custom settings button. at the bottom there are choices as to how your pc deals with authentification. If you want to log onto a server then you surely don’t want to override your outlook setting by sending your pc username and password. It would be a good idea to log on automatically only on your intranet . Your intranet is your local network whtch is the private network addresses assigned to your in home network only., That is, just the pc’s in your house. Another cause can be you once answered yes to saving your password on IE. Saved passwords override any password you currently enter. good luck

  51. Hello All,
    Yesterday I doing RnD with Ypops & free yahoo and come up with a solution. Even if I am not switching to the classical view of yahoo mail then also my outlook express 2003 is able to send/receive the mails.

    Let me tell you what other settings you have to do than the above suggestions.

    1. In ypops : set the port number 995 for POP3.
    2. In Outlook express 2003:
    – pop.mail.yahoo.com (POP3 server)
    – smtp.mail.yahoo.com (SMTP server)
    – In “More setting” , go to “outgoing server” tab and check “My out going server….” ,”Log on using” and fill the username & pasword and also check remember password.
    – On advance tab , check “Incoming server POP3” and set port # 995.
    – Do not check the “Outgoing server SMTP”
    – Test the account settings.

    and now enjoy with outlook & ypops…

    Good Luck guys

      My question is.
      I can download my emails throw outlook if I registered to mail plus only or you have a solution for me?
      THS

  53. I am using outlook 203 & ypops 9.5.4 version ….
    I am not getting any error but not able to send the mails.
    but i am receiving the mails properly.
    Do anyone have any idea whats going on ?

    • I am using Windows and m also receiving the same error message. i have configured it as suggested using loads of combinations. perhaps its not designed for microsoft Outlook 2007

      • You must ask your ISP for the SMTP due to blocking of port 25 at their side which doest not permit the smtp that is not white listed. For example, for PLDT subscribers in the Philippines, they are using the SMTP: smtpdsl.pldtdsl.net

  54. I do have the same problems. Emails are coming in, my emails as per above mentioned settings. But on outgoing emails it gives the error on outlook 2003.

    Please tell me how can it be solved.

    Task ‘xxxxxx@yahoo.com – Sending reported error (0×80042108) : ‘Outlook is unable to connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).

    Thanx very much and the help will be greatly appreciated

    Regards

  55. Regarding previous comments: Some people say they can successfully access Yahoo mail using Outlook without Ypops and other people are saying it’s impossible. Well That all depends on your personal network. To send email only requries an SMTP server. Windows comes with SMTP. Whether you install it is your choice. It’s really for the expert users but you can install the provided SMTP serfver by creating a local server on your PC. For windows that would be Microsofts IIS server. With a Server now on your PC you can send and receive email. The down side to that is the huge security risk having a email server running on your pc . Just thnk of all the hackers that want to use your computer to send email or store thier pirated software on your pc for all to access without your knowledge. I could expand on that but that’s another story. Other options are installing Ypops or using your companys email server. Note: companys email servers use that same POP3 and SMTP ports so your email will go to your company email server and not forward unless your contact the administrator to allow your IP address port forward POP3. Good Luck

  56. I have a Yahoo plus account and yet I can’t get Yahoo web access to send files larger than 200k using either yahoo classic or plus. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled over and over. Alll 5 of my computers seem to have the same problem. I do successfully access Yahoo from Outlook 2000 and Outlook 2003 using my plus account.
    Ok now for the good stuff. I use to manage an Exchange server (Pop/smtp) at work. I send and receve my yahoo mail using Outlook 2003. The configuration was as follows.
    Email Address: Myemailaddress@yahoo.com
    User Name: myusername/pop.mail.yahoo.com
    password: Mypassword
    Pop3: localhost (or 127.0.0.1 which is actually better)
    (note: the host file is ussd to resolve localhost to 127.0.0.1)
    Smtp: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Advanced: I enabled “my outgoing server smtp requers Auth”
    Log in using: (I nter your username w/o yahoo.com)
    Password: (Enter your password)
    I don’t remember the port numbers I used but the international port number assigned to Pop3 = 110 (nonsecured – your username and pswd travers the internet unencrypted) and for (SSL) Secured Pop3 = 995. For SMTP nonsecured = 25 and for secured SMTP (SSL) = 465.:
    Yahoo mentions that if you use unsecured Pop3 =port 25 and your service provider doesn’t accept port 25 than you can use port 587. FYI: Yahoo’s solution for people who couldn’t use port 25 was to assign another port on there servers to POP3.. Yahoo has assigned port 587 to POP3. Good Luck

  57. Hi,
    Every time i am asked to enter password again and again.What’s wrong?
    Is there any other way to use outlook2007 to open my yahoo account.?

  58. Sorry to say…but this does not work…
    I am using Outlook 2003 and i did exactly what it says and i kep getting the error

    “unable to send message, check your email address field”

  59. Outlook 2007, and Yahoo! Classic without a glitch using Ypops. It stopped working properly yesterday and just updated to YPOPs!/Windows 0.9.6 Alpha 1 this morning. Outlook 2007 still could not receive or send messages. I went to the Yahoo! website and swiched it from “Classic” to “What’s new?” version. I was able to receive messages but not send them. It read “Your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: 554 Mailbox unavailable.”

  60. I gave up man i tried doing this for 2 months either i get enter network password or error 554 none of thse threads work man and i have a yahoo.com acount i gave up but i dont want too i realy like outlook and use it with gmx and g mail werks great

  61. im running outlook 03 and it worked fine on the old harddrive but now ypops never works

    im getting failed test messages, 554 mailbox errors and i cant remember how i set this up last time

  62. to all guys who have problem accesssing yahoo mail via outlook.

    if you’ve got “yahoo.com” id extension don’t try because nothing gonna work on that but others are lucky.

  63. Still having an issue sending emails; w/ Outlook 2003; can receive just fine though;

    Have one email account setup as localhost w/ ip #’s for server identifications (127.0.0.1)

    Checked (Outgoing server requires authentication) and use same settings as incoming mail server

    Connection: use local area network

    Outgoing server set to 25 in advanced tab

    Same msg as others: 554 Mailbox not available and the following recipient cannot be reached …

    Also – not sure how to configure Ypops; does that have to be done during the install?

    Thanks,
    Mark

  64. I am using Outlook 2007 for yahoo free mail without ypops and it works just fine. ypops and outlook 2007 don’t seem to work well together. I haven’t had any problems. I am not using ypops at all; it’s not even installed. Just give it a try.

    for incoming and outgoing servers use the following:

    pop.mail.yahoo.com
    smtp.mail.yahoo.com

  65. When you set up a pop3 account with yahoo with a screen name that you have had for 10 years and you decide that you no longer want to receive mail or have a public profile available can this be possible meaning if anyone was to email me it would be returned except for people knowing my pop3 address? Would someone explain this process to me?

  66. I know this isn’t related to the article, and I’m sorry, but I had to say something about it.

    The poll on the right side of the page asked for my “gender”.

    Unfortunately, humans do NOT EVER under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES have “gender”. Nouns have gender in languages like Spanish. People are described with the attribute “sex”. Therefore, the question should be “What is your sex?” or “Which sex are you?”

  67. np like Dan mentions .. it could be corrupted profiles. I would recommend that if ypops used to work for you, I would recommend deleting your yahoo profile in outlook, get the latest ypops and then follow my earlier suggestion of classic interface. It should work for you guys.

    Props to you guys @ Askstudent too..

  68. Thanks Mike.. that worked perfectly. I guess a lot of people had problems since Yahoo switched their interface. So it is a matter of profile corruption.

  69. Outlook 2007, and Yahoo! Classic without a glitch using Ypops. It stopped working properly yesterday and just updated to YPOPs!/Windows 0.9.6 Alpha 1 this morning. Outlook 2007 still could not receive or send messages. I went to the Yahoo! website and swiched it from “Classic” to “What’s new?” version. I was able to receive messages but not send them. It read “Your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server has reported an internal error. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP). The server responded: 554 Mailbox unavailable.”

    I went back to Yahoo! and switch from the “new” vesion back to “Classic”. . . . Outlook 2007 is working like a charm!

    Hope this helps

  70. Hi Aaron, thaks by your comments but actually is working your configuration just to rocketmail and ymail, for yahoo.com is necesary the Ypops.

    Thanks,
    Rodolfo.

  71. If you are recieving the 554 error, I may have a solution. After spending some time playing with outlook 2007 and ypops, I realized you don’t need ypops to grab email from a yahoo free mail account. If you use pop.mail.yahoo.com and smtp.mail.yahoo.com as your outgoing/incoming servers it will grab your mail. It worked for me. I also removed ypops to see if it would work and it still does.

  72. Hi, I have the same problem with ypops, some times i can send e mails, for example today i have like 2 hrs sending e mails from outlook and then was showing the message 554 mailbox unavailable, i dont know if is problem of the Ypops, Outlook 2007 or Symantec Norton. PLease some one could you help me to resolve this problem.

    Thanks, by the help.

  73. i tried this steps exactly but it gives me unable to send message, check your email address field

    i am sure the mail field is ok

  74. Thank you so much! I was always getting so frustrated trying to set up outlook, as all my email accounts are from yahoo. That download worked!

  75. For all those who are having problems with sending email should see the window above, with caption “Change Email Account” there at the right bottom you’ll find button “More Settings…..” click that, select advanced tab and click the check box saying “My outgoing server (SMTP) required authentication” also under that, if not by default, click radio saying “Use same settings as my incomming mail server”. You should not have any problems with sending emails anymore.

    I also have a problem though, under Configure YPops window I click Unread under “Download Email Category” but still I receive all the emails in my inbox. I am using Outlook 2007. I didn’t see anyone replying to queries of others here but since I am out of options I’m posting my problem with hope that if some one know the solution, I’ll be helped.

  76. i follow the above step but still unable to access my yahoomail through Oulook 2003, below message prompt out:

    Task ‘xxxxxx@yahoo.com – Receiving’ reported error (0x80042108) : ‘Outlook is unable to connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).’

    may i know why?

  77. It still work sending emails out but you have the hastle of testing it out 3x before it works. just go to tools>options>mail setup tab>email accounts>repair>tick the manual configure settings>next>test account settings 3x…till you get both sending and outgoing process check marks.

  78. Hello every body,

    I do have the same problems. Emails are coming in my emails as per above mentioned settings. But on outgoing emails it gives the error that 554 mailbox unavailable on outlook 2007.
    Please tell me how can it be solved.

    Thanks
