Windows 7: Yahoo Mail on Thunderbird

Yahoo Mail on Thunderbird

I've been trying to follow the tutorials in the internet for me to be able to access my Yahoo Mail in Thunderbird but none works for me.

I've downloaded the latest version which is 12.0 but I can't make it work with Yahoo Mail. Any tips?

my email is:

This won't work on me: Mail Classic Help | - SLN3286 - How to read Yahoo! Mail using Mozilla Thunderbird

It won't work on my .ph account. It tells me that I'm placing the wrong password but I'm placing the correct one!

You need to config your Yahoo account to use POP3 first. Read here how to do that - Mail Help | - SLN3255 - How do I receive my email in another email program?

In ThunderBird under the new account wizard just enter your e-mail address without the .ph then click continue and it will find the correct settings.

Next add the .ph to your e-mail address and click continue again. This time you will get the error "Thunderbird failed to find settings...." and it brings up the manual settings. Just click create account and it should work.

I created a temp e-mail address to test this and found that I could leave the .ph off and it still worked and I also tried adding it to the end of the Incoming and Outgoing hostnames which also worked but gave a Certificate error.

Thunderbird 24.0.1 - Import Yahoo Mail Folders, Contacts & Yahoo Mail
The "new improved" Yahoo Mail isn't. In fact, it's vexing, mortifyingly slow, and no longer allows open folders while creating new messages so you can't copy and paste with both items open. Since Yahoo won't permit going back to the old, reliable version. So, I'm seriously considering a switch to...
