If you are trying to set up email for your phone / tablet or laptop using Outlook / Thunderbird, do the following:

  1. Ensure the settings for incoming and outgoing server are correct. Use the following:

    Incoming mail server (IMAP) — imap.yandex.com
    Connection security — SSL
    Port — 993

    Outgoing mail server — smtp.yandex.com
    Connection security — SSL
    Port — 465

  2. If the above is correct but the password is rejected, create an "app password" as follows.

    STEP 1
    Log in from the browser using LAPTOP or COMPUTER (or use desktop version of website on mobile device) at:

    https://id.yandex.com/

    After logging in, go to "Security" (left menu).



    STEP 2
    Scroll to the bottom of the Security page that opens and go to "App passwords". Click on "Use app passwords".



    STEP 3
    Then click on "Email Address" which is the first choice on the list that will appear.



    STEP 4
    A popup will show and then type in any name for this password just to distinguish it (eg a word, initials, a name, etc). Click "Next".



    STEP 5
    An app password will then show on the screen. It is ONLY SHOWN ONCE so you need to write it down or copy it or save it somewhere or take a screenshot.



    Use this as your password in the email settings on your phone app, tablet app or on a computer in Outlook, Thunderbird, etc. If you lose this password in future, you can come back and create a new one.
