Re: What is the imap?
As per your query- what is IMAP (Incoming Mail server), actually it is a proper way to connect any mail account (as you have your Yahoo Mail account (web based)) to a desktop based mail client or mobile apps.
And it permits 2-way syncing, i.e. everything you do remotely is imitated in your email account (Yahoo Mail) within a network.
You can follow given steps-
IMAP Server setting-
-Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
-Port - 993
-Requires SSL - Yes
SMTP Server setting (Outgoing mail server)
-Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
-Port - 465 or 587
-Requires SSL - Yes
-Requires authentication - Yes
Fill your account information, as a format is given below-
-Fill your Email address
-Fill your Password
-Select Requires authentication - Yes
Hope this info will assist you and resolve your query as well. Thanks!
