Help Center / Adding Your Email Account (POP) to Yahoo! Mail

Rather than use an email alias or forwarder of your email that sends email received at your email address to your Yahoo! Mail address, it is strongly recommended that you configure your Yahoo! Mail account to retrieve your emails directly via POP.

(For more information on why you should retrieve your email rather use a forwarder, please see the KB Article – Not Receiving Forwarded Emails.)

  1. Log in to your Yahoo! Email Account at

  2. Click on the Gear Icon in the upper-right hand corner of the screen (just to the right of your Yahoo! User Name).

  3. Choose SETTINGS from the drop-down menu.

  4. On the SETTINGS screen, click on ACCOUNTS in the left-hand pane (as shown below)
  5. Under ACCOUNTS (third item down) click on the [ADD] button.

  6. Enter your account information (as shown below)
  7. Click on the [SAVE] button to confirm your changes.

  8. Once your Yahoo! account has started to retrieve your email from your account, be sure to remove any forwarding you may have set on that account. You can do so by going logging in to your web-based mail at and going to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT SETTINGS > FORWARDING and removing your Yahoo! address from the “Forwarding Address” field. Be sure to click on the [SAVE] button to commit your changes.
