How to Access Yahoo Mail POP3 Server Settings

POP3 is an email protocol used when forwarding email to a different server. You can forward your Yahoo! Email to Outlook or a smart phone by accessing and enabling POP3; this also deletes the email after it is read on your device so you do not receive it twice. Before you are able to do this with Yahoo!, you must have Yahoo! Mail Plus, which costs a yearly fee.
