Connecting Yahoo mail with Evolution

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

I now know that you have to change the account to a plus yahoo account. Then the receiving server is plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com port 995. Outgoing server plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com use SSL and port 465 Cost 19.99 a year. I have other accounts so I will just forward my messages one at a time.
