    Password: Enter password
    IMAP server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 143
    Security: none
    SMTP server: smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com
    Port: 587
    Require sign in: Yes (checked)
    Username: Email address
    Password: Yahoo! Password

    lol .. it took me quite some time and a lot of trial and error redoing it to come up with those parameters.

    Good on ya to put it all in here.

    Now, could you do the same with inbox.com? :D
