pop3 ;imap ;HTTP setting for incoming and outgoing mails in my pc for yahoo


The regular Yahoo! Mail accounts (US) do not provide access via the POP3, SMTP and IMAP email protocols. So you cannot access a Yahoo! Mail account with a standard email program (e.g., Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird), unless you take some additional steps.

Here are some options that can provide the type of access you are seeking:

(1) Yahoo! Plus - paid upgrade
Yahoo offers a paid upgrade for its email accounts. The "Yahoo! Plus" account provides POP3 and SMTP access; the cost is $20/year. For details see:
http://overview.mail.yahoo.com/enhancements/mailplus
http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mail/yahoomail/mailplus/pop/pop-14.html
(BTW, I'm not sure that's a particularly good deal, but it is relatively simple to implement.)

There are also some free work-arounds which will allow email programs to access a regular Yahoo! Mail account.

(2) YPOPs! - free software
This program is a "POP3 gateway", which allows Yahoo Mail to be received and sent via any standard email program. You'll need to download the free program and install it; then configure both the Yahoo account settings in your email program and in YPOPs, so they will work together. For details and download, see:

http://ypopsemail.com/
For configuration guidance, see articles at:
http://ypopsemail.com/documentation/37-email-configuration

(3) WebMail - free Thunderbird extension
If you use Thunderbird as your email program, there is a free extension which will allow access to various webmail services (including Yahoo). You'll need to download and install both the basic WebMail extension and the Yahoo plug-in; then follow the instructions to configure them for your Yahoo account.
