How to Configure IMAP or POP Settings in Yahoo Mail?

In order to access your emails on devices such as computer or smartphones, you need to configure your IMAP or POP settings correctly.  Both IMAP and POP let the user access their mails from remote server. However, there is a difference between the functionality of both protocols. While POP simply downloads an email to your device and usually deletes it from the remote server, IMAP leaves a copy of the email on the remote server.

Misconfiguration of these protocols is what causes the issue to the users who try to operate their email account. Many Yahoo Email users face this problem and look for the solution to it. In this topic, we will be providing assistance in configuring the right IMAP or POP settings in Yahoo Mail. Below we have also mentioned different issues faced by Yahoo Mail users when IMAP or POP settings are misconfigured.
