General principles

You can receive and send messages not only through web interface, but through various e-mail clients as well.

Setting IMAP:

Email clients using IMAP not only download all your new messages, but synchronize all your account information between your computer and our mail server, including all default and custom folders, You can also access your account and messages from different computers or mobile devices. Any messages you send will be saved both on your computer and our mail server so you can access them even when you're away from your main computer. Unlike IMAP, the POP3 protocol will only store your sent messages on your computer.

Now you can start setting up a mail client on your computer. Specify the following:

  • in the Incoming mail (IMAP) section, specify the server address imap.yandex.com, set up the SSL protection and port 993. If your mail client does not support SSL security for some reason, you can specify port number 143 and connect without SSL

  • in the Outgoing mail (SMTP) section, specify the server address smtp.yandex.com, and use the SSL-protected connection through port 465. If you cannot use secured connection, you can connect to SMTP server using port number 25 or 587

When setting up a mail client, enter your Yandex.Mail username and password as credentials for mail server access. Use your complete e-mail address as login.

We do not recommend using your provider's mail server to send e-mail from your Yandex.Mail address.

Setting POP3 :

When using POP3, the mail client will download all your messages (from the folders you specify in the Mailbox settings ) into the Inbox of your computer, and then you can sort them into folders using filters set up in the mail client if desired.

Please note that many mail clients delete downloaded messages from the server by default. In this case all the messages will be moved from your Inbox into the Trash folder, and deleted from there after seven days.

To leave the messages in the Inbox, you can set up the mail client option for leaving message copies on the server after downloading, if your mail client allows that. We cannot set up this option from our side.

When setting up an e-mail client to use POP3, you need to specify the following:

  • in the Incoming mail (POP3) section, specify the server address pop.yandex.com, set up the SSL protection and port 995. If your mail client does not support SSL security for some reason, you can specify port number 110 and connect without SSL

  • in the Outgoing mail (SMTP) section, specify the server address smtp.yandex.com, and use the SSL-protected connection through port 465. If you cannot use secured connection, you can connect to SMTP server using port number 25 or 587

When setting up a mail client, enter your Yandex username and password as credentials for mail server access. If you are setting up access to a mailbox with the address of myusername@yandex.com , your username is the first part of the address, myusername.

Attention! We do not recommend using your provider’s mail server to send e-mail from your Yandex address.

If you download your mail using POP3, you can:

  • Leave the default settings. Then only the messages from the Inbox will be downloaded.

  • Set up downloading from any set of folders, including Spam folder and user-defined folders. To select folders for downloading, go to the Settings page in the Mail clients section. You can also set up the option ‘Mark messages in Yandex.Mail as read when downloading mail using POP3 protocol’ that enables you to see directly from the web interface which messages were downloaded by the mail client. By default, the messages are not marked as read when downloaded by client.
