INCOMING
IMAP Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
Security Type: SSL (always)
Authentication Type: PLAIN
Port: 993

OUTGOING
SMTP Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Security Type: SSL (always)
Authentication Type: PLAIN
Port: 465
Require Sign-In: [yes]

My gut tells me you might have the authentication configuration wrong (?)
Also, Complex757 (above) is correct, but also be sure to remove the leading period (i.e. "imap.mail.yahoo.com" as opposed to ".imap.mail.yahoo.com"). Hope this helps!

Everything setup as above, don't see anywhere to toggle "Authentication Type" though. Interestingly if I Send email from that account on my phone it goes through, just won't receive anything from the mailbox.
