Yahoo's outgoing mail server
Yahoo's outgoing mail server can be used also into an email client like Mozilla Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook. That is, you can send emails with your Yahoo account using a desktop application instead of its normal webmail service. Plus, the setup process is very easy.
Only remember that if you plan to send bulk emails, Yahoo puts a limit of 500 emails/day and 100 recipients/email to its outgoing mail server: moreover, even if you split your database into smaller chunks and organize different mailings, Yahoo's SMTP server won't be able to guarantee a full delivery rate.
That's why it's better to choose a professional SMTP server like turboSMTP: you can subscribe and get immediately 6.000 free relays per month, lifetime.
And now, here's how to configure your mail client. First of all open the configuration window:
and then fill the fields with Yahoo's outgoing mail server settings, which are:
- Yahoo outgoing mail server address: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
- Yahoo outgoing mail server user name: your Yahoo Mail account
- Yahoo outgoing mail server password: your Yahoo Mail password
- Yahoo outgoing mail server port: 465 or 587 (for further information, check our article about SMTP ports)
