    I’ve had 2 Yahoo email accounts running on the Mail app for several years. A few weeks ago, the second account started just being a mirror of the first one in the Mail app. It shows properly in Yahoo mail on a browser.

    I tried deleting and re-setting up the second account but haven’t had success. Can’t remember how I set it up in the first place. It won’t set up a second account under “Yahoo” so I tried it as “Other”. I can’t seem to get the correct SMTP settings. On a browser this account comes up under us-mg5.mail.yahoo.com.

    Can anyone give me a step-by-step for accomplishing this?

    Thanks.

    I’ve found the answer.

    - Add the mail account using Other (not Yahoo)
    - Wherever there is a username required put in your entire primary Yahoo email address, ie username@yahoo.com
    - Wherever a password is required put in your Yahoo password
    - Put the secondary email address only in the New Account > Email field
    - Incoming server = imap.mail.yahoo.com
    - Outgoing server = smtp.mail.yahoo.com
