How To Configure Yahoo Mail POP3 Settings?

You can use the Yahoo Mail POP3 settings to use your Yahoo Mail account in a desktop or mobile app. IMAP is another protocol through which you can configure and manage your email messages. When an email account is configured using the POP account, all the emails will be downloaded to the email client and removed from the server. Because of this, the emails cannot be accessed from any other email clients.
