Mozilla Thunderbird ISP Configuration Settings: Yahoo!.

thunderbirdYahoo! Service Offerings Yahoo!'s services vary by availability and rate based on the country where you are located. In order to use Thunderbird with your Yahoo! account, your account must use the POP protocol.
As of April 2010:
  • In Canada and the USA, Yahoo! POP Access is not free. In these two countries, POP access requires payment. The service is called Yahoo! Mail Plus.
  • In other countries, Yahoo! POP access is free.

Yahoo! POP Settings

Refer to Yahoo!'s instructions for accessing Yahoo! Mail via POP.

  1. Create a new calendar by going to the File | New | Calendar menu.
  2. The wizard will ask where your calendar is located. Answer On the network.
  3. The wizard will then ask for the format you want to use to get access to the calendar. Choose CalDAV
  4. Next, enter https://caldav.calendar.yahoo.com/dav/<your_username>/Calendar/<your_calendar_name> into the Location bar.
    1. Replace <your_username> with the first part of your email address (everything before the @).
    2. Replace <your_calendar_name> with the name of your calendar. You will find it into the calendar's box on the left. Enter it, including the underscores.
  5. Click the Next button to continue the setup. Choose a name and a color for this calendar, and then you are done.
