Hello, and thank you for asking your question,
I am Sr. Mac Tech Support Specialist, Terry, glad to assist you.

Could you provide me with the following information, so I can better assist you with your technical question:
• What version of Mac OS X are you using on your Mac?
(i.e. "Mac OS X 10.5.6 or Mac OS X 10.4.11, etc" -)
( If not sure how to check version of Mac OSX system- Click on Apple icon (Apple Menu) on upper left corner of screen- from the menu select "About this Mac" - you will see your version in the popup window)

• Have you been attempting to access email through the built-in Mac OS X Mail application?

Looks like a stamp icon on the Dock to access that application

Your answers to the questions I have submitted, will allow me to work with more detailed information, in order to effectively answer your question.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX be looking forward to your reply. Thank you!

Thanks for your reply.

Here is what I would like you to try:

From within Mail >Preferences, using your current Yahoo Plus email account and password,
make sure you use these mail server settings

Incoming Mail Server (POP3):
Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP):

•Under Accounts if you already have a yahoo mail account setup that you have been attempting to use, then just change the incoming and outgoing server address with the one provided above.
Also, still keep the port: 465, for using authenticatio.

Let me know if this helps, I will be watching for your reply, to see if this works.
