Okay, I can use my Yahoo mail accounts via IMAP. What I set are these:

Incoming: imap.mail.yahoo.com
Outgoing: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Server requires authentication
Incoming Port: 993 IMAP
Outgoing Port: 465 SMTP
Requires encryption

This works just dandy on both Outlook and Outlook Express in Windows XP and
other versions with the free Yahoo email service via IMAP. (POP3 requires a
paid subscription.)

These settings do not work using an Android tablet with the KitKat OS, which
is 4.4.something. The server hangs and eventually times out. Other port
settings get immediate server refusal.

Any ideas why this doesn't work?

Did you set security type = SSL/TLS?

There's no outgoing setting for "requires encryption" but there is one
for "requires authentication". Otherwise, it looks ok.

Try 143 for IMAP incoming port.

Hmmm...doesn't work either. I'm going to try a different client. I was
trying to use the Calendar that comes bundled with Android KitKat. I'll
look into Outlook instead.

I didn't like Outlook when I tried it. I'm currently using K-9 Mail
and AGP. The big pluses are open source and support for PGP
encryption.

I'm really looking for a calendar program I can sync to my Yahoo calendar.
K-9 Mail doesn't tell me anything about calendars.
