Yahoo IMAP Issues

Go to solution

Hi there people!

 

I'm using Mac OS Lion and my email client is Mail. 🙂 Over the past couple of days I have been experienceing some on and off issues when connecting to BT's Yahoo IMAP mail server. I get the following message:

 

---------------------

Alert

There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Verify the settings for account “*********@btinternet.com” or try again.

The server returned the error: The connection to the server “imap.mail.yahoo.com” on port 143 timed out.

---------------------

 

I have an iPhone and iPad both connecting fine to the server, but for some reason my desktop cannot 😕 Some times it works on my desktop and sometimes not, very strange.

 

Hope you can help,

 

Toby
