Re: Correct settings for outlook 2010 using imap

I have posted it before. The thing is, you will not be able to use Calendar with a imap mailbox as your default box. Just go with the standard POP settings.

Anyways for the search not wanting to, these are the settings again:

Incoming: imap.mail.yahoo.com; SSL authentication, Server Port 993
Outgoing: smtp.mail.yahoo.com; SSL authentication, Server Port 465

Re: Correct settings for outlook 2010 using imap

Outlook 2010 doesn't allow one to specify port, so I did it like imap.mail.yahoo.com:993 (similar for outgoing) and it could not connect. Is this  correct syntax? Also should I choose "use secure password authentication" (I think that's what it said)

Click on the more settings button on the bottom right of the sever settings page and you can specify the port you would like to use.
