You can receive and send messages not only through web interface, but through various e-mail clients as well.
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:
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:
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 firstname.lastname@example.org , 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.
