I tried that too. It didn't work :-(
I do notice this......
Mail... Preferences... Accounts... Advanced tab has this field which is empty: IMAP Path Prefix and the socket is 993 with SSL checked. Is that right? It seems odd to me that this field would be empty.
I did try running the "connection doctor" and it gives me green lights on everything except the Yahool outgoing server, which just spins.
Thanks for your help!
Also - my yahoo mail (outgoing) has been running well so why/how would it just drop?! Any thoughts?

In the advanced tab imap is empty on mine as well port 993 and ssl checked is correct enable this acct should be checked.
Your outgoing (SMTP) server should be smtp.mail.yahoo.com: your email address here. Try clicking use only this server for testing purposes. You may try writing down all the info in accounts pane for this account, and delete it and then recreate it using the + and - buttons in the accts left side bar. One other thing is that yahoo is not going to be using "classic mail" as of early June, you might want to click the "Try New Mail" button on the web mail page if you are still using classic. I did this as well during my issue with this with yahoo. I don't know if this had anything what so ever to do with it, but I was just going thru everything. I recreated it all so I can not be certain what exactly fixed it.
Hope some of this helps,
