Had an issue setting up a users Yahoo account in Outlook. I followed the directions here, but it would authenticate.

What I found to work for me was the following:

  • Type of Account: POP3
  • Incoming Server:  pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Outgoing Server:  smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Click on more settings and go to Advanced
  • Use 993 with SSL
  • Port 465 on the outgoing
  • Check “must use secure …”, “logon using same as ….” setting.
  • Click Okay.

The issue we had is with Yahoo. Login into the yahoo account. Click on the user name in the upper right and select account setting. On the security tab scroll down and turn on allow unsecure.

I hope this helps someone else out there…
