Yahoo Mail is the predecessor of many email services we are using today. It was launched on October 8, 1997; it has a dedicated following of users. Nowadays, other email services provide more features, but Yahoo Mail still has more than 200 million active users.
Its user interface is minimal, and the mailbox is arranged into several folders. If you can connect your Yahoo mail with Outlook, you can enjoy more features like a better contact system and calendar management.
Outlook has a more stable environment, and you will no longer need to input your credentials in a web browser again. You can add multiple accounts in Outlook, and the following article will show you all the necessary steps to connect Outlook in modern versions of Outlook like 2016 and 2019.
You need to enable the following option to allow yourself to log in to Yahoo account from non-Yahoo apps and devices:
If two-factor authentication is enabled in Yahoo, then you need to create a new app-password for use while accessing the Yahoo account from a different application.
There is a direct method to add the account in Outlook.
If there is any connectivity issue, then you can add the account manually also. In the manual process, you need to mention the incoming and outgoing email servers and their port numbers.
The process of adding the Yahoo account to Outlook 2019 is exactly similar to that for Outlook 2016.
Yahoo mail is active for more than two decades, and many users are continuously using it. But if you follow the news, you may be aware of the phishing attacks on the Yahoo accounts on large scales. In 2017, Yahoo accepted that more than 3 billion of its accounts were affected due to a theft of accounts. That’s why you should take the security of Yahoo mails more seriously and keep a backup of the emails at regular intervals. So, you can use the Kernel IMAP Backup tool. It will enlist all the messages of your mailbox and export them safely to a PST file. Advanced features are available in the tool to select/deselect folders, apply filters, take back up, and get a complete report. You can use the PST file in the Outlook application to open the messages.
