Using Yahoo with Entourage

Yahoo! POP mail service is now available for a yearly subscription fee . Visit Yahoo! Mail for more information on signing up for a new account.

  • If you are already paying the fee, check your settings:
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com (use authentication)
    • Do this by clicking on Advanced Sending Options and then Use Authentication.
    • A second option to using smtp.mail.yahoo.com is to use your ISP's SMTP. e.g. smtp.comcast.net

  • Incoming mail server (pop3): plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Outgoing mail server (SMPT) : plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com

Yahoo user reports:

Well, contrary to what Yahoo lists for Entourage settings we did the following and its working now:

  1. Email address username@yahoo.com
  2. Account ID: username
  3. Password: password
  4. Incoming Mail Server : pop.mail.yahoo.com absolutely NO advanced settings (contrary to what yahoo stated)
  5. Outgoing mail server : (what ever your ISP uses for outgoing mail- yahoo wanted us to use theirs which we never could get to work) no advanced settings for outgoing server.

Some digests like Yahoo, don't follow the standard and so Entourage has trouble bursting them. You need these scripts.
