This page explains how you can use the Yahoo! Mail Web site to read mail sent to a POP mailbox that you've created. These instructions are for the new Yahoo! Mail interface, not the older ("classic") interface.
- Login to Yahoo! Mail
- Click Options and select More Options
- Click Accounts
- Click the Add Account link
- Enter an account name, such as example.com (you can actually choose any display name you wish)
- Enter your name
- Enter your full email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
- For "Username", enter: email@example.com
- For "Password", enter your e-mail password
- For "Server", enter: mail.tigertech.net
- Click Show advanced options
- Make sure Use SSL is unchecked
- Make sure Use Filters is unchecked
- Make sure Override default POP port is unchecked
- Uncheck the box for Retrieve new messages only
- Make sure Leave mail on POP server is checked
- Click Save Changes along the top of the settings area
Yahoo! will probably send a confirmation message to your e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Click on the link in that message in order to confirm this new setup.
Note: In order to force Yahoo! to pick up the e-mail sitting in your email@example.com mailbox, you may need to click on the down arrow next to "Check Mail" and select Check all accounts.
If you see an error message saying the POP server "does not support the LAST command", that's because the Retrieve new messages only checkbox is still checked. Go back and uncheck it to fix this.
