Link your IMAP account
You can link any IMAP email account to ClickUp. In this example, we are setting up IMAP with a Yahoo email address.
To link your IMAP Yahoo account:

- Click the email icon.
- In the From field, select Link an email.
- Select Sign in with IMAP.
- Enter your email, password, IMAP host, IMAP port, SMTP host, and whether or not SSL is required. Find the Yahoo host and port information below:
- IMAP Host: imap.mail.yahoo.com
- IMAP Port: 993
- SMTP Host: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
- SMTP Port: 465 or 587
- Requires SSL: Yes
- Optional: Set up an app password. Depending on your provider, you may need to use the password for the client, not the server.
- Choose who can send emails from this account, create signatures, and create email templates.
- Click Done.
