How POP3 access to Yandex.Mail works

When using POP3 with an email client such as Thunderbird on your computer, you download messages from Yandex.Mail to folders on your computer. By default, they end up in your inbox unless you set filters with your email client to put messages in a different folder.

When using POP3, Yandex.Mail still stores a copy of the message on its server next to the copy you downloaded. If you delete a message in the email client from your computer, it will not affect messages stored on the Yandex.Mail server. You need to go to the Yandex.Mail web interface if you want to delete messages from your server.

If you want the delete actions performed on your computer’s email client to be mirrored on the Yandex.Mail server, you should use IMAP.Mail access instead. It is available as a capable, easy-to-sync alternative to POP.
