    Yahoo POP Access and Mail Forwarding Terms of Service

    1. ACCEPTANCE OF TERMS

    Welcome to POP Access and Mail Forwarding! Your use of this service is subject to these additional terms that supplement the Yahoo Terms of Service (https://info.yahoo.com/legal/us/yahoo/utos/utos-173.html), incorporated by reference.

    Yahoo reserves the right to update and change, from time to time, these additional terms and all documents incorporated by reference. You can always find the most recent version of these additional terms at https://info.yahoo.com/legal/us/yahoo/mail/popaccesstos/popaccesstos-299.html and the most recent version of the Yahoo Terms of Service at the URLs indicated above.

    2. CERTAIN REQUIREMENT FOR POP ACCESS AND MAIL FORWARDING

    Please note, you should check with your ISP to ensure that POP Access will work for you. Some ISPs do not allow their users to send messages with other SMTP servers. If your ISP does not allow access to the Yahoo SMTP servers, you will not be able to use a POP3 client to send e-mail through the Yahoo servers (see http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/context/context-45.html).

    Also please check to make sure your email client supports authenticated SMTP. If you use a program that does not support the authenticated SMTP protocol, you will not be able to send mail using the Yahoo SMTP servers. The most recent versions of popular clients (Outlook, Outlook Express, and Eudora) do support authenticated SMTP (see http://help.yahoo.com/help/us/mail/pop/pop-11.html).
