Yahoo! BB Email Account Configuration
Q. How do I configure my Yahoo! BB email account.
A. Yahoo! BB will send you a Yahoo Japan ID and password. Use those following the instructions below.
Email Account Configuration
Here is what you need to enter in your email client's settings area:
Note: The Yahoo! BB SMTP (outgoing) email server can only be used for email mail addresses ending in <@yahoo.co.jp> or <@ybb.ne.jp>. For email being sent "From" other addresses, see the "Note to users of other domains" below.
User Name (User ID): = Your Yahoo Japan ID
POP (incoming) mail server address: ybbpop.mail.yahoo.co.jp
I'm afraid I'm unable to offer detailed instructions on how to enter the above info in your email client because there are too many different clients running on too many OS versions. Your computer's help or email wizard should be able to help you. If that also doesn't work, use Google to find more info about your email client for your situation.
Note to users of other domains
They do this by blocking other domains from using their SMTP servers and also from using Port 25, which is where their SMTP server connects.
This will block any outgoing email that does not have the domain of <yahoo.co.jp> or <ybb.ne.jp>.
Also, since port 25 is blocked, you will have to send it through a different port such as 587, 465 or 2525. If none of those work, then you will need to contact the administrator of whichever SMTP server you use and ask which port they accept.
Hope this helps!
