    Configuring Yahoo Mail in Outlook can enhance your email management, but it requires a careful setup. Here’s a detailed manual approach:

    Open Outlook and navigate to “File” > “Add Account.”

    Opt for “Manual setup or additional server types” and click “Next.”

    Choose “POP or IMAP” and proceed with “Next.”

    Input your Yahoo Mail account details, including the incoming (IMAP) and outgoing (SMTP) server settings:

    IMAP Server:
    SMTP Server:
    User Name: Your Yahoo email address
    Password: Your Yahoo email password
    Click on “More Settings” and select the “Outgoing Server” tab. Check the box for “My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.”

    In the “Advanced” tab, set the Incoming server (IMAP) to port 993 and the Outgoing server (SMTP) to port 465.

    Confirm your settings and run a test to ensure everything is configured correctly.

    The manual process, although functional, can be intricate and time-consuming, with potential errors.

    A more efficient option is to employ the Cigati Yahoo Backup Tool. This user-friendly tool streamlines the Yahoo Mail to Outlook migration, eliminating manual configuration hassles. It’s a robust solution to ensure a smooth and error-free transition, saving you valuable time and effort.
