Here's everything you need to know to bring your Yahoo email account to the Windows 10 Mail app.
Yahoo has stopped supporting its "Yahoo Mail" app for Windows 10, and this means that if you're still an avid user of Yahoo mail, starting May 22, 2017, you'll no longer be able to check your emails using the app.

While the company has advised users to switch to the web browser experience, you can still use other solutions, such as the Mail app included with Windows 10. This app not only includes support for Yahoo mail but it offers many of the same features, including desktop and Lock screen notifications, dynamic Live Tile updates in the Start menu, and theming with custom color schemes and backgrounds. It also won't bombard you with ads, unlike Yahoo's email website.
In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through the easy steps to set up a Yahoo email account in the built-in Mail app. We tell you steps to fix specific sync issues that may occur after configuring the account, and we also look at the steps to uninstall the no longer supported Yahoo Mail app from your device.
