SMTP which is also known as Simple Mail Transfer Protocol is an email exchange server which is used for an email client application by the users. If is also primarily used by the users to send emails which you can send from email client application. The users of the Yahoo can also configure and also set up the Yahoo mail account on any client account. This is done to use the account in the offline mode and also the email backup of your conversations in your computer system.

But there have been complaints registered by some of the users that the yahoo SMTP server not working. So for this issue and to solve this issue we will be providing you with the ways in this article. In some cases the users are experiencing the error with the server of SMTP and because of this error the users are not able to send emails.

Here are the Settings for the Server for Yahoo –

Incoming Mail server which is also known as IMAP

      The server – impa.mail.yahoo.com

      Port – 993

      Requires SSL – Yes

Outgoing Mail server which is known as SMTP

      The server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com

      Port – 465 or 587

      Requires SSL – Yes

      Requires authentication – yes

You must also be aware of the login information of your account too which will further help you to go for the Yahoo mail server settings. You must know the Email address of your account which will be your full email address then you must also know the password of your account which you have set while creating your account. Another thing you must know is the option of requires authentication which you must fill as Yes. Along with these settings you can also go for the POP settings to configure the settings of the server of your Yahoo account which will be on the Email client application.

POP Server Settings for your Yahoo Account –

Incoming Mail server which is also known as IMAP in short

      The server – pop.mail.yahoo.com

      Port – 995

      Requires SSL – yes

Outgoing Mail server which is known as SMTP in short

      The server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com

      Port – 465 or 587

      Requires SSL – yes

      Requires TSL – Yes (when or if available)

      Requires authentication – Yes

Just like the above case you must know your login credentials too for Yahoo mail outgoing server settings which when you will see further will include the Email address of your Yahoo account along with the password of your account which you must remember carefully and then you must remember to fill a yes against the Requires authentication option.

Now you as an user always have the option to either use the specific settings that are provided above by us or you can also go for the configuration of the settings of your Yahoo account once again and can change some other settings too and once finally you are done with all the settings of your server you can test the settings you have done by sending mail not to some other account but to your own account so that you can check whether the settings have been done correctly or not or you still need to some changes in it.

If you need a site which can answer all your questions and could also provide you with the solutions for the queries too, Datarecovo is the site for you which will surely not disappoint you and you can also gain the most out of it. So, we would definitely like to recommend this site to you so that you can use it for your own needs and purposes.
