Configuring free Yahoo Mail

Are you having trouble configuring your free Yahoo email account on your phone? Here’s how to do it.

I’ve heard you may have to turn off WIFI, but I don’t have a problem with the WIFI on.

Open your email app and click on “Add Account”

Enter your email and password. Then click “Next”

You’ll see this warning.  Click “OK”

You’ll see this message.  If it’s successful, it’ll go to configuring the outgoing email settings.  If it fails, you’ll get the screen below.

If you get this message click on “Edit details” to get back to the screen below

Click on “Manual Setup”

Click on “IMAP”

Enter your username and password.  Enter “imap.mail.yahoo.com” under IMAP server.  Enter “143” under Port.  Click “Next”.

You’ll get this message.  It should work and go onto the Outgoing server settings.

Input “smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com” under the SMTP Server and “25” under the Port.  The username and password should already be entered.  If not, input them.  Click “Next”.

You’ll get this message

Adjust your options then click “Next”

Input your preferences then click “Done”

That’s it!  Your account should be set up.
