Set up the email client

Using the Yandex.Mail web interface isn't the only way you can access your mailbox. Download and install the Yandex.Mail mobile app (Android or iOS) on your smartphone or use a pre-installed email client. To do this, enable the IMAP or POP3 protocol in your mailbox settings and then set up the email client following the instructions for your platform.

Note. We recommend configuring the program via IMAP. This way, your mailbox activity syncs between your phone and the server.

If you configure your mail client via POP3, all the messages that are available in the web interface will be downloaded to your phone. Use the "Save a copy of the email to the server" option if your mail client provides it. You can't enable this option in the Yandex.Mail web interface settings.
