At this point it's a different setting to get things todo POP. Just be sure you use the correct IMAP servers for the email services you're setting up. Jan 27, AM. Thank you, but it definitely states Pop. I am using btinternet for my mail. The Pop settings do not allow all the Imap info and servers to be put in. Jan 30, PM. The trick here is not to choose the existing Yahoo option but to set up the account manually on all devices! Note : When setting your yahoo IMAP account up both the user name and password under the Ougoing Mail Server are listed as 'optional' - you will have to fill in your information here, otherwise you'll be able to receive emails but the emails you sent to others will never reach them.

Yahoo will not allow MAC Mail to connnect
I have been trying to set up my free yahoo mail for 3 days now and ONE simple thing from all of these posts helped me out! I have a free account, my password is small and I set up with IMAP and I was still receiving the caution triangle symbol in the actual apple mail. All is took was for me to enter into apple mail, click on- mail- on the menu bar in the upper left hand corner, drop down and click on - preferences, click on the yahoo mail icon, find -Outgoing Mail Server SMTP and open the box. That's it, a colon!! So now it should read- smtp.
I hope this helps! Sep 4, PM.

User profile for user: Markie Castle Markie Castle. Any helpful tips appreciated, Markie. I created a brand new Yahoo account, and was able to do the setup in Mac Mail with no problem. I shortened the password to under 20 characters, and everthing started working again.
It was driving me crazy when it happened to me. Having tried several solutions. I became resigned to the problem. Try this only after you saved all your current settings. I then decided to delete all my accounts in Apple Mail. Use Keychain. The next time you log into Apple Mail you will be prompted using the initial setup screen. This helps with the suspension I call it funk. I then went to gmail. This took out the suspended animation out of the password error message. My Apple Mail client worked right away and I was able to send and receive emails for free.
No fee, no hassle. Then just for grins, I tried reconfiguring Yahoo again.
I am guessing the following: Outages throw off Apple Mail settings due to recalibration problems at Yahoo. Classic Mail takes the old POP settings that probably worked fine until the suspension occurs. Yahoo still has outages. They still have sub-par support. Thank you for the investigation and update!
