Yahoo mail is one of the most popular web-based mail service providers worldwide. People nowadays use more than one email account from different service providers for different purposes. To avoid any kind of confusion, people prefer to log in to all their email ids from a single place. The outlook is the best solution to this problem.
Accessing your Yahoo account with Outlook(2007, 2016, 2010, 2003, 2016 and 2019) might come with a lot of advantages to you. Those amazing advantages are:
Large Sized files can be attached easily:

You don’t need an internet connection to access your emails via Outlook. A user can have access to the emails in Outlook even after being offline. So, the outlook emails can be accessed in emergency situations without any trouble.
Sort the emails according to file size:
The users can sort all their emails in Outlook by the size of the files. This option makes it easier to delete files quickly from a particular folder or sender. Data Sharing also becomes easier in Outlook due to this option.
