In today’s era, both Yahoo and Outlook have become the center of attention for providing user-friendly email platforms. Therefore, people often show their interest to use them together. Hence, we have come up with a way that will help you configure Yahoo mail with Outlook.
As we know that there are several Outlook versions available, therefore we are here offering you instructions to set up Yahoo with different Outlook versions such as 2010, 2013, 2016, and 2019.
So, let’s start.
Note: Make sure to use the IMAP over Yahoo mail POP settings. IMAP is better in terms of advancement and offers more flexibility to manage data across multiple devices.
By setting up a Yahoo account with Outlook, you can get more liberty over data management. But to start with, you need to start by enabling the two-step verification on your Yahoo email account.
If you are done enabling the two-step verification, get a Yahoo app password. This app password can replace your Yahoo mail sign-in password while configuring Yahoo on Outlook.
If you don’t have the two-step verification enabled on your Yahoo mail account or you don’t want it enabled, you need to set the Yahoo account so that other email clients can be configured with a Yahoo account sign-in password.
Step 1: Sign in to your Yahoo Mail Account.
Step 2: Now, from the top-right corner, choose Profile Name and then select Account Info.
Step 3: Select “Account Security” from the left menu.
Step 4: You may ask to sign-in again, do if asked.
Step 5: Now, choose “Generate App Password”.
Step 6: Then, choose the versions of Outlook from the “Select your App” menu. Select Outlook iOS, Outlook Android, or Outlook Desktop.
Step 7: Select Generate
Step 8: On the next window, you will get the password key and the right way to use it.
Important Note: having Yahoo two-step verification enabled on your Yahoo mail account will offer you an additional protection layer on your Yahoo mail account and prevent unauthorized attempts to access your Yahoo account.
