Yahoo Mail IMAP setup with a PLUS account

Often I setup PDA’s / Phones to access Yahoo Mail, especially with a PLUS account.

For those of you with a Yahoo Plus Email account – these work the best (via IMAP4)

Yahoo – PLUS

Incoming Settings
Password: Password of your yahoo mail
Incoming mail server:
Mailbox Name: Yahoo
Mailbox type: IMAP4
Security(Ports): Off /none
Port: 143

Outgoing Settings
SMTP Server:
Port: 465
Security type:  SSL
Require Sign In / Authentication
Password: Password of your yahoo mail

IMAP4 means it will stay sync’d up as you use Yahoo in other places, SSL on outgoing is required for SPAM prevention.

Happy Yahoo’n
