Yahoo Plus Email Settings
If you have a Yahoo Plus account, you can configure GroupMail mass email software with the Yahoo Plus email settings so you can send your newsletters and other group emails through the Yahoo Plus SMTP mail server.
Just add these Yahoo Plus email settings to GroupMail
1. First, add your user information, specifying how you want to identify yourself to your recipients and add your Yahoo Plus email address and the email address where you want replies to be sent. The content in the Name and Organization fields is what will appear in the From field of your emails. You can leave the Organization field blank. If you do put something here, it will appear (in parentheses) after the content that you have in the Name field.
2. Enter the Yahoo Plus email settings for the SMTP mail server address (plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com), check the “Requires Authentication” box and click Setup. You can also set the number of delivery connections and delivery pauses on this screen.
3. Check the “Use SMTP Authentication (outbound)” box, keeping the default AUTH LOGIN type and enter your full domain hosted email address and password that are associated with your Yahoo Plus account. Then, click OK and you’ll go back to the Delivery Options tab.
4. Click the “Advanced” button at the bottom of the Delivery Options tab and change the SMTP Port from the default 25 to 465 and check the “Server requires an SSL connection” box. Choose to use “Direct SSL” as the SSL connection type. This will automatically change the incoming POP3 port from the default 110 to 995 (that’s a good thing by the way!) It is also a good idea to add a custom domain while you are on this Advanced screen. For Yahoo Plus, the custom SMTP domain would simply be yahoo.com. Click OK.
That’s all there is to it.
* Make sure that you click OK at the bottom of the Delivery Options screen to save your settings when you are done. You can always go back to modify any of these settings.
** Mail servers make changes at times. If you experience any problems with these Yahoo Plus email settings, contact Yahoo Plus! and ask them to confirm the current Yahoo Plus email settings that they want you to use. You might do me a solid and inform me of any changes if they do occur.
As always, if you have any questions or need some help along the way, don’t hesitate to contact our technical support team.
