Bring your Gmail and Hotmail to Yahoo!
Are you tired of checking multiple accounts every time you check your email? Did you know you could check your Gmail and Hotmail accounts right from Yahoo! Mail?
With our external accounts feature you can pull your emails from any service that supports the POP protocol into Yahoo!. This functionality has been part of Yahoo! Mail for some time already, but we’ve recently added the ability to POP in your accounts from services that only allow SSL connections. If you tried setting this up in the past and were frustrated in your attempts, give it another try. If you haven’t tried this yet and would like to see all your emails in one place, we encourage you to set this up and make Yahoo! your one stop for email.
To set this up, go into Mail Options and click on “Accounts”. Then click “Add Account” and specify the POP server for the respective service. If the email provider only supports SSL connections make sure to change the port number to 995. See the screenshots below:
As always, tell us about your experience. We’d love your feedback.
