    I've got mine as pop.mail.yahoo.co.uk & my outgoing smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk &
    ticked outgoing server requires authentication & changed the outgoing mail
    (smtp) to 587, it works for me, although your email address is .com & not
    ..co as mine so may not work for you but worth a look at.

    I too had the repeated log-in screens.

    Try this - Open your Yahoo mail in your browser, and go to the Options page (accessed via the link top right). Follow the link "POP access and forwarding". Make sure "Web & POP Access" is checked and - here's the crucial step I'd missed - press "Save"!
