Once you've logged in, use your account's Settings panel to customize how your inbox looks and functions.

Checking Your Inbox Using the Yahoo Mail App

On a mobile device, the quickest way to monitor your email is to download and install the free Yahoo Mail app.

Step 1

Download and install the app from your app store, open the app and log in to your Yahoo account using your Yahoo email and associated password.

Changing Your Yahoo Mail Settings

Use the Settings panel in your Yahoo Mail account to customize the appearance and functionality of your inbox. How use this panel varies slightly depending on whether you're using the Yahoo Mail app or the Yahoo Mail website.

Change Settings in the Yahoo Mail App

In the Yahoo Mail app, tap the three-line Menu icon in the top-left corner of your screen, scroll or swipe down and select Mail Settings.
