Yahoo mail is one of the oldest email services to ever exist when it comes to the emailing world. The email service has been one of the best if not the best email services and rightfully so as the platform offers tons of great filters and features along with new updates regularly which makes sure that the user gets a great overall emailing experience. 

You can even use third-party email clients to access your Yahoo mail and you can do so with the help of Yahoo IMAP settings. In case you are one of those users, who want to set up their email account on third-party clients like Outlook, read the blog till the end to know how to do so as today's blog is about the same.

The application passwords also play a major role in all of it as these one-time passwords allow the users to access their email account without having to enter their account password, given that they have set up a two-factor authentication method for your email account.
