It looks like Yahoo is no longer accepting membership to their premium services but if I've understood your OP, you are already subscribed?

In that case, I did a search on Yahoo and found this info here:
Quote:
Here are the basic server settings for Yahoo! Mail:
  • Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: pop.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 995)
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
  • Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")
  • Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g., user@yahoo.com)
  • Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

So you'd want to go into mail.app, Mail> Preferences> Accounts> and click the little [+] icon and fill in the blanks. To start ya off, you'd first select a POP account, and then just keep goin'...

another noob question it took all my mail that I have saved in yahoo and is looking at it as new mail. How can i select all my mail and mark is at read mail instead of it saying new mail. Like on the dock on the bottom it says I have 3625 emails new when I have read all those emails already there just save in my yahoo. Thanks again in advance.

Click on the first or last email, hold down the shift key, click on the last/first email, right click (or if not using a mouse, ctrl- left click) and in that little pop up menu select Mark> As read.

Or just hover the cursor over the mails and click -a (for "all"). Then mark them as Read.

Oh, and - clicking is the same as ctrl click in Windows (ie it will allow JUST what you're clicking to be highlighted, along with whatever else you've already clicked or - clicked).

just went through this, i kept getting rejected by Mail until i was logged out of my yahoo account. so if you're having trouble, this could be it.

Have the same problem to register yahoo email account w/ Mac mail

I already tried your solution and used it to register my yahoo email account on my Mac, but it keeps not working. The messages are always : "There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Verify the settings for account “Yahoo!” or try again." What sould I do?

i was just wondering if you change the pop. to imap. if your trying to set up an imap so it works easier if you travel a lot or use a laptop, im not quite sure on the differences of the two but i read that imap. supports maneuverability more so than pop. does.

thanks
