After using Yahoo Mail IMAP for years on my iPhone, I was excited when I read a Wikipedia article stating that one can use IMAP on Apple Mail for the desktop also. I followed the instructions listed here:

These are the settings:
Incoming Server - imap.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Incoming Port - 993 (requires SSL)
Outgoing Port - 465 (requires SSL/TLS)
Username: full email address (for example, bill@yahoo.com or bill@rocketmail.com)
Password: the password you login to Yahoo! with.

But I'm not able to send out emails. I double checked my Outgoing server and Outgoing Port settings, and I also tried the Connection Doctor and the light goes green stating "Connection and login to server succeeded". I'm not sure what is wrong. Any advice would be most appreciated!

Thanks,
HL
