Set up Thunderbird with Yahoo

 

We teach you, how to set up Thunderbird with Yahoo. Your email server settings, applied to Mozilla Thunderbird, in a step by step guide with images and practical examples.

 

Mozilla Thunderbird is a free alternative to Outlook that can work in portable mode, that is, after installing it in a folder, you can move this folder anywhere and if you copy it, it will serve as a backup! This tutorial is also available for other devices like PC, Android, Mac and Iphone, just choose your option from our menu.

 

STEP ONE

First you need to enable POP on Yahoo

 

  • Sign in at Yahoo
  • Go to your account
  • Account security
  • Turn on "allow apps that use less secure sign in"
 

OUR EXAMPLE

As an example, we created a fake user:

 

Name: Peter Smith

Email: petersmith@yahoo.com

Password: **********

 

Replace our fake user info by your own name, email and password, and set up according to the images bellow

 
 

STEP TWO

Download here a portable version of Mozilla Thunderbird

Install (you can use a pen drive) and run Thunderbird

 

If this is the first time you're running Thunderbird then a window should pop up to help you set up your email and that is where our tutorial starts.

 

If this is not the first time, then you should go to Menu hover over options (don't click it) and choose Account Settings. In Account Actions you can Add Mail Account.

 
 
 
 

STEP THREE

Insert your data

 
 
 
 

STEP FOUR

Select POP3

Afterwards select Manual config

 
 
 
 

STEP FIVE

Double check your email server settings

Select Advanced config

 
 
 
 

STEP SIX

Set the amount of messages to keep on server

Don't leave message copies on the server for more than 3 or 4 days, because the more you keep, the closer you get to your storage limit, resulting in errors that prevent sending and recieving emails (even if you delete them from Thunderbird).
