Hi Gordon.....Yes, I was switched over to the AT&T Yahoos some time ago.

My servers in the preference box show this:

Incoming mail server: imap.mail.yahoo.com

outgoing: smtp.mail.yahoo.com: (my email address)

Under Advanced in the preference box:

IMAP Path Prefix: there is nothing on this line....should there be?

Port: 993 SSL is checked

Authentication: says Password (not my actual password, but the word "Password".

At some point about a week or so ago, I got the message that I could not send email from this account because the server did not use the port I was evidently using....

The MAIN problem I see now is that my password does NOT remain in the preference box.....after I type it in and click to "save".

Guess a phone call is in order...I hate working with these people....

Thanks, Gordon
