Yes, Yahoo provides both IMAP and POP3 client access. You need to be sure to log in on the website first and verify the latest security and client access settings. See:

As Bill said, yes. I use POP3 and IMAP4 with Yahoo Mail.

That was why I gave the second Yahoo link. Be sure to read the first link also. Here you go:

POP settings for Yahoo Mail

Incoming Mail (POP) Server
  • Server - pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port - 995
  • Requires SSL - Yes
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server
  • Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port - 465 or 587
  • Requires SSL - Yes
  • Requires TLS - Yes (if available)
  • Requires authentication - Yes

You can find the settings as follows:
  • Click the gear in the upper right and select Settings.
  • Click Writing email at the left, then make sure you have the desired font and other sending settings. Next click Accounts (see the note at the bottom).
  • Click your default Yahoo account (probably the top item) and make changes to your signature.
  • Click Save at the bottom.
It's a horrible user interface with far too many ads for me to use. It's also one of the most unreliable email systems I have ever used. I just sent several test messages.
  • The first test message arrived in 3 seconds.
  • The second test message was delayed between internal Yahoo servers for 3 minutes. It then took 2 additional seconds for delivery to the recipient.
  • The third test message stuck 16 minutes between internal Yahoo servers, then a few seconds for actual delivery.
  • I sent the fourth test message to a different destination (Gmail) and it was stuck for 18 minutes inside Yahoo.
  • The fifth test message was stuck 30 minutes inside Yahoo.
This happens from time to time. Yahoo is very unreliable and often slow!
