Configure Yahoo Mail in Outlook - Server Error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to set up Yahoo Mail on Outlook but I get the following Errors:

    Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Outlook cannot connect to your incoming (POP3) e-mail server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).

    Send test e-mail message: None of the authentication methods supported by this client are supported by your server.

    I have check the Yahoo email account and POP is already configured. Is there something else that needs to be enabled?

  • Hi,

    Before going further, I’d like to confirm if you can configure other POP account on the Outlook client.

    Based on my research, here is a reference about configuring Yahoo account on Outlook:

    If other POP account can be successfully configured, I recommend you contact with Yahoo support. Thanks for your understanding in advance.
