You can send and receive Yahoo emails from your mobile device

Getting all your emails in one place, whether desktop or mobile, is convenient. 

If you like to send and receive Yahoo Mail emails using a client or other email application, you must initial access the IMAP settings for your Yahoo Mail account on that client or application. 

Yahoo provides IMAP access to your Yahoo Mail account for mobile devices and e-mail programs on the desktop.

Introduction to your entire mail in one point

After inserting the Yahoo IMAP and SMTP settings in the Settings part of the email provider you prefer to use, you can use your regular program example - Gmail, AOL or Outlook - or an app on your mobile device to get and send messages to your Yahoo Mail address in addition to accessing your online account through a browser. IMAP settings assure that you can access the mail in all your Yahoo files in both the email program and the browser.
