  • I think "mai" should be "mail" in your imap server name above. "mail" worked for me, not what you have listed.

  • Your instructions are no longer correct for imap on bellsouth accounts. They don't work. The correct procedure is to use the yahoo email client but update the address with youraddress@bellsouth.net. Add your password and take the other yahoo defaults. Your in with full imap capability.
