YAHOO MAIL POP SETTINGS

With the help of the POP or the IMAP settings, you will be able to configure your Yahoo Mail account on email clients like Outlook, Thunderbird, Gmail, or Apple Mail. Now that we are dealing with the Yahoo POP settings, when you receive a new email message, it will be downloaded to the local storage on your email client and will be deleted from the mail server. So, when you configure your Yahoo Mail account using POP, you won’t be able to access it on any other email client application.
