Access your Yahoo.com (Yahoo! Mail) Account from an Email Program using IMAP

Yahoo.com (Yahoo! Mail) provides IMAP access to your Yahoo.com (Yahoo! Mail) account, so you can connect to your emails from your desktop email program or your mobile mail app.

Yahoo.com supports IMAP / SMTP

That means you don't have to use Yahoo.com webmail interface! You can check your emails using other email programs (like Mailbird, Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird). Using desktop email programs will make you more productive and your email will always be available, even offline.
