After using Yahoo Mail IMAP for years on my iPhone, I was excited when I read a Wikipedia article stating that one can use IMAP on Apple Mail for the desktop also. I followed the instructions listed here:

EarlyRed: Yahoo IMAP settings for Mac and Apple Mail that actually work

These are the settings:
Incoming Server -
Outgoing Server -
Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL/TLS)
Username: full email address (for example, or
Password: the password you login to Yahoo! with.

But I'm not able to send out emails. I double checked my Outgoing server and Outgoing Port settings, and I also tried the Connection Doctor and the light goes green stating "Connection and login to server succeeded". I'm not sure what is wrong. Any advice would be most appreciated!

QUOTE Thanks
