    You will need to enter these settings in the Preferences section of the Mail App.

    type: IMAP


    incoming server: imap-ssl.mail.yahoo.com
    Imap path prefix: imap-ssl.mail.yahoo.com
    port: 143
    ssl: off

    outgoing mail server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    ssl: on

    Yahoo Mail does not work with desktop clients ootb because no POP3 I think. At least in the US. My workaround was to go to yahoomail.com, log in, and set the settings to Yahoo Asia, but leave the language as English.

    For some reason Yahoo Asia does work with desktop clients.
