Software cannot connect to my Yahoo! account

This is because free Yahoo! accounts can't be accessed with mail clients (Microsoft Outlook, Apple Mail, Thunderbird or mail user agents built into our tools). The feature is exclusive for the holders of paid Yahoo! accounts. 

The users of Yahoo! Mail Plus can synchronize the SEO PowerSuite tools and BuzzBundle with their mail accounts using the following settings.

Incoming Mail Settings for Yahoo! Mail Plus

  • Incoming mail server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
  • Server port: 995
  • Use secure connection: checked (SSL/TLS)
  • Username: your Yahoo! Mail Plus ID (your email address without the @yahoo.com part).
  • Password: your Yahoo! Mail Plus password

Outgoing Mail Settings for Yahoo! Mail Plus

  • Outgoing mail server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Server port: 465
  • Use secure connection: checked (SSL/TLS)
  • Server requires authentication: checked (Use POP3 account settings)
  • Use POP3 before SMTP authentication: unchecked

Of course you can use any of the free alternatives such as Gmail or Hotmail.
