Have you ever wondered how emails magically find their way from your computer to the recipient's inbox?
Well, there’s something called SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol).
Your SMTP server collects your email messages from your email client/program and ensures they reach your recipients’ email provider, and eventually their email client.
If you're a Yahoo Mail user, your email provider/service is Yahoo mail and your email client/program is the app (or web-based program) you are using to access your inbox and emails. It can be Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, macOS Mail, IncrediMail, iOS Mail, and Gmail, etc.
Configuring Yahoo SMTP settings for email marketing allows marketers to send bulk emails and newsletters directly through their Yahoo Mail accounts. This can help them to increase email deliverability and the sender's reputation.
In this blog post, I have covered:
Let’s dive in!
As mentioned before, SMTP (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol) settings are used for sending outgoing emails. They include the SMTP server address (e.g., smtp.example.com) and port numbers (usually 465 for SSL or 587 for TLS).
While POP3 (Post Office Protocol 3) settings are used for downloading emails from the server to your device, IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) settings are used for accessing emails on the server without downloading them.

Before you begin the configuration, make sure you have access to your Yahoo Mail account. Open your web browser, visit Yahoo Mail, and log in using your account credentials.
If you don’t have one yet, you can create a Yahoo Mail account here.
Please note: the option of using "Less Secure Apps" is not available for people who have enabled "Two-Step Verification".
You need to generate a Yahoo app password when you have enabled "Two-Step Verification" for your Yahoo account. The app password is used as an alternative to your regular account password when configuring Yahoo SMTP in email clients that do not support the two-step verification process directly. Here's the step-by-step process to generate a Yahoo app password:
Please note that Yahoo may occasionally update their security settings or require app-specific passwords for certain email clients. If you encounter any issues during the configuration, contact Yahoo's help center for the latest information.

Yes, Yahoo Mail is an email provider/service provided by Yahoo. When you sign up for a Yahoo Mail account, you get an email address that ends with "@yahoo.com." Yahoo Mail is the service that manages your email account, stores your emails, and allows you to send and receive emails.
An email client or email program is the software you use to access your email account and manage your emails. It provides you with an interface to read, write, send, and organize your emails. Examples of email clients/programs include Mozilla Thunderbird, Microsoft Outlook, macOS Mail, IncrediMail, iOS Mail, and Gmail.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
