Differences between POP and IMAP


It's good to have options. IMAP and POP let you access Yahoo Mail using mobile devices and external email programs. Find out which is best for you.

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol)

  •     The default way a mobile device accesses your Yahoo Mail account.
  •     Changes made to messages on a mobile device automatically reflect in Yahoo Mail on the web and  vice versa.

POP (Post Office Protocol)

  •     Yahoo Mail messages are delivered directly to your email client.
  •     Copies of messages in both Yahoo Mail and the email client are independent of one another.
  •     Make changes to messages on your email client without impacting their counterparts in your web-based Yahoo Mail.
  •     You must configure your email client to keep a copy of your messages on our server or your emails will automatically be deleted from Yahoo Mail on the web.
  •     - Check with the manufacturer of your mail client for assistance configuring this setting
