Android Tablet Honeycomb Yahoo! Mail settings

I have difficulty trying to setup my Yahoo! Mail. Most of the steps I went through succeed however the next time when I am to check my mail again, it will have authentication error.

So finally I came across another post and here is the correct setting I have done with.

The settings are as followed for manual setup for IMAP.

IMAP server -
Port - 143
Security type - TLS
IMA path prefix - (leave blank)

SMTP Server-
Port - 587
Security type - None
(check) require sign-in

Hope this helps. Comments if you find there are mistakes.
