These are the directions needed to configure your  IMAP access in your Yahoo account:
For Incoming Server use  imap.mail.yahoo.com
For Outgoing Server use  smtp.mail.yahoo.com
For Incoming Port use  993 ( this requires SSL)
For Outgoing Port use465 (this requires SSL) or  use  port 587 (this requires SSL/TLS)
Yahoo Mail will use your full email address as the login name.
