Yahoo! POP Email Settings
Yahoo! POP Email Settings. These are sometimes a pain to get right. Try to use their tool with your email and client for a visual, and if this link does not work any more please take a minute to make a comment so I can find where they have moved it this month. Or you can just go into your settings and use the info below.
They took down a nice table they had up for a long time. It was easy to just copy and paste from, but you can do that with the text below. If I can find it again, or if I recreate it, I will post it here also.
|Here are the basic settings if you have an (username)@sbcglobal.net email address, or any of the others in the list in the picture.
