Hi,

This might now be the answer, but..

I'm perplexed now. I use imap for my yahoo7 mail and I'm in Australia.
I followed the information on these two sites below and it's been working fine...

https://in.help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-cl...pressions=true
Yahoo mail Account to Outlook 2007 Using IMAP

So, if you do find a solution, I'd be interested in knowing how you got it to work, because the settings I gave you work for me.

It seems you have settings for POP and IMAP mixed together. Which do you want to use?
Did you enable POP in Yahoo? https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mobile-mai...-sln22038.html

IMAP settings https://help.yahoo.com/kb/mobile-mai...pressions=true

Your screenshot shows one obvious error: Your account type is set to POP3, yet you are trying to use the IMAP mail server.

If setting up Yahoo mail using POP3, you need to change the incoming server to POP server (pop.mail.yahoo.com instead of imap.mail.yahoo.com).

Oops sorry :-(
I had used: Incoming server (IMAP): Either 993 (ssl)" before
The new number is: Outgoing server (SMTP): 465 (ssl)
I had used 25 (also given here) and another number given at some Yahoo page. Also I clicked on, "check the box next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication."
Which I had not always done before.
