Yahoo! provides an Internet-based e-mail application to give you access to your e-mail account anywhere you have an Internet connection. When you use Outlook to manage your messages, Yahoo! offers a paid subscription service to upgrade your mail account for Outlook access. Store messages in the Outlook application instead of using Yahoo! server space.

Plus Upgrade

Upgrade your free Ymail account to a Yahoo! Plus mail account on the Yahoo! site. After you pay an annual fee, the Plus account increases your limit on e-mail filters from 100 to 250, helping you manage your incoming mail. The offline access to POP mail granted with the Ymail account enables your access to send and receive messages through an e-mail application like Outlook.

Incoming Mail Server

Add the email account to Outlook with "plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com" in the incoming mail server input field. The user name is your complete Ymail e-mail address and the password is your e-mail account password. Add your name the way you want it to appear when you send messages in the field provided.

Outgoing Mail Server

Enter "plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" in the Outgoing Mail Server field. Click "Advanced Settings" to set the logon information for your outgoing mail server. Click the check box beside "My outgoing mail server requires authentication" then choose the option to use the same settings as your incoming mail server.

SSL Connections

Click the "Advanced" tab under the server settings field to set the SSL connection information. Select the "Secure Connection (SSL)" requirement in the settings for the incoming and outgoing mail servers. Input "465" in the field for the outgoing mail server port. Place "995" in the port field for the incoming mail server.
