While some people log into the Yahoo Mail website through a browser to check their mail, this can be pretty inconvenient. If you have an iPhone, a better solution is to add your Yahoo Mail account to your iPhone.

It’s faster and more efficient than checking email in a web browser, and you get all the convenience of a full-feature email app that’s optimised for the iPhone’s screen.

You can do this in two easy ways – by installing the Yahoo Mail app, or by adding a Yahoo Mail account to the iPhone’s own Mail app. Here’s how to do both.

How to add the Yahoo Mail app to your iPhone

Yahoo offers its own Yahoo Mail app for the iPhone. You don’t need to use it, but it offers some useful features, like the ability to automatically filter your email by the type of message (such as subscriptions, receipts, travel, and unread).

If you want to give it a try, install Yahoo Mail from the App Store and then log into your Yahoo account using your username or email address and password.

To install additional Yahoo accounts, tap the menu icon at the top-left of the Yahoo Mail app and tap “Add another mailbox.” Tap Yahoo and follow the instructions to enter your username or email, followed by your password.

1. Launch your iPhone’s Settings app – its icon looks like a grey gear.

2. Scroll down and tap “Accounts & Passwords.”

3. Tap “Add Account.”
