Yanex Configuring desktop email clients

Configuring desktop email clients

In addition to using the Yandex.Mail web interface, you can also work with your messages using various desktop email clients.

Suggested email client settings for mobile phones and tablets are available at Mobile access for smartphones and tablets.

Configure IMAP-based client

When using the IMAP protocol, the email client syncs with the server and saves the structure of folders in your mailbox. Messages that you send from the email client will be saved both on your computer and on the server, and you can access them from various devices.

Enable IMAP protocol before configuring your email client:

  1. Click the icon in the upper-right corner.
  2. Click All settings.
  3. Click Email clients.
  4. Turn on the From the imap.yandex.com server via IMAP option.
  5. Save the changes.

To set up an email client for the IMAP protocol, you need to specify the following:

Incoming mail
mail server address — imap.yandex.com
connection security — SSL
port — 993


Outgoing mail
mail server address — smtp.yandex.com
connection security — SSL
port — 465


To access the email server, enter your Yandex login and password (or use the application password if you have two-step verification enabled). If you are configuring email delivery from a mailbox such as “login@yandex.com”, your username is the first part of the address before the “@” sign. If you are usingYandex.Mail for Domain, enter your full email address as the login.

Attention. We do not recommend using your provider's mail server for sending mail in your name on Yandex.
IMAP support will be enabled automatically the first time you log in to the mail program.

Configure POP3-based client

When using POP3, all messages from the folders that you select in the menu Settings → Email clients will be saved by the mail client on your computer in the Inbox. If necessary, you can set up filters in the email client to automatically move messages to the desired folders. Messages you send will only be saved on your computer.

Note. When downloading email from the server over POP3, Yandex.Mail backs up your messages on the server automatically. You can, however, delete them manually using the web interface. To remove email using an email client, use IMAP.
Enable POP3 protocol before configuring your email client:

  1. Click in the upper-right corner.
  2. Click All settings.
  3. Click Email clients.
  4. Enable the From pop.yandex.ru server via POP3 option.
  5. Save the changes.


To set up a mail client for the POP3 protocol, you must specify the following:

Incoming mail
mail server address — pop.yandex.com
connection security — SSL
port — 995


Outgoing mail
mail server address — smtp.yandex.com
connection security — SSL
port — 465


To access the email server, enter your Yandex login and password (or use the application password if you have two-step verification enabled). If you are configuring email delivery from a mailbox such as “login@yandex.com”, your username is the first part of the address before the “@” sign. If you are usingYandex.Mail for Domain, enter your full email address as the login.

Attention. We do not recommend using your provider's mail server for sending mail in your name on Yandex.
You can set up message delivery over POP3 from any folder, including Spam. To do this, go to Settings → Email clients and select the folders.

By default, when downloading folder contents using email clients, messages are not marked as read. If you want to mark the received messages as read, enable the corresponding option.
