  2. Select Add Account...
  3. Select Other

  5. Enter information for Name, Address, and Description.
  6. For Incoming Mail Server, Host Name: pop.att.yahoo.com, User Name:[email protected], Password: whatever it might be.
  7. For Outgoing Mail Server, Host Name: smtp.att.yahoo.com, User Name:[email protected], Password: whatever it might be.
  8. Select Advanced.
  9. Under Incoming Settings, make sure Use SSL is on, Authentication is Password, and Server Port is 995.
