    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

    That is exactly where I had gone to do what was done. You make a good point when you say, "don't forgot to set the correct ports" the problem is, one is never given that choice.Look at the imagge attached and you will see (even if a 2nd window is used)
    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.
