Setting up email clients

In addition to using the Yandex.Mail web interface, you can also work with your messages using various email clients. To do so, you need to enable POP3 or IMAP protocol in your mailbox settings. Follow these steps:

  1. Open the Settings menu:

  2. Select Email clients.
  3. Select the required protocol.
  4. Save the changes.

Configuring IMAP protocol

When using the IMAP protocol, the email client syncs with the server and saves the structure of folders in your mailbox. Messages that you send from the email client will be saved both on your computer and on the server, and you can access them from various devices.

To set up an email client for the IMAP protocol, you need to specify the following:

Incoming mail
  • mail server address — imap.yandex.com
  • connection security — SSL;
  • port — 993.
Outgoing mail
  • mail server address — smtp.yandex.com;
  • connection security — SSL;
  • port — 465.

For access to the mail server, provide your Yandex username and password (or the application password if you enabled two-factor authentication). If you are configuring email delivery from a mailbox such as “login@yandex.com”, your username is the first part of the address before the “@” sign.

Attention! We do not recommend using your provider's mail server for sending mail in your name on Yandex.

IMAP support will be enabled automatically the first time you log in to the mail program.

Configure POP3 protocol

When using the POP3 protocol, all messages from the folders that you select in the menuSettingsEmail clients menu will be saved by the mail client on your computer in the Inbox. If necessary, you can set up filters in the email client to automatically move messages to the desired folders. Messages you send will only be saved on your computer.

Note.  When downloading emails from the server using the POP3 protocol, Yandex.Mail saves copies of the emails on the server automatically, but you can delete the emails using the web interface. If you want to delete emails with an email client, use the IMAP protocol.

To set up a mail client for the POP3 protocol, you must specify the following:

Incoming mail
  • mail server address — pop.yandex.com;
  • connection security — SSL;
  • port — 995.
Outgoing mail
  • mail server address — smtp.yandex.com;
  • connection security — SSL;
  • port — 465.

For access to the mail server, provide your Yandex username and password (or the application password if you enabled two-factor authentication). If you are configuring email delivery from a mailbox such as “login@yandex.com”, your username is the first part of the address before the “@” sign.

Attention! We do not recommend using your provider's mail server for sending mail in your name on Yandex.

You can set up message delivery over POP3 from any folder, including Spam. To do this, open menu SettingsEmail clients and select the needed folders.

By default, when downloading folder contents using email clients, messages are not marked as read. If you want to mark the received messages as read, enable the corresponding option.
