Unable to transfer mails from Yahoo Mail to Windows Live

April 2018


I'm trying to transfer my mails from my Yahoo mail to Windows Live mail, but I'm getting the following error:
Your server has closed the connection unexpectedly. Possible causes may be problems with the server or network, or a long period of inactivity. Subject 'test',

Account: 'plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com', Server: 'plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com', Protocol: SMTP, Port: 465, Secure (SSL): Yes, Number error: 0x800CCC0F


  • By removing the "+" before the SMTP address that is, instead of having for outgoing mail (SMTP) 'plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com' make use of 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com' , you

should be able to retreive your mails from your Yahoo Account.

Thanks to Phil21 for this tip.
