These are my settings. You may have different servers to connect to.

I do believe that in order to use a POP with Yahoo Mail you need to upgrade too there "gold" membership or what ever they call it now. It's like 20$ a year.

If I remember reading correctly, even in Windows, a program called YPops was necessary for Yahoo to display in email clients. It looks like Yahoo is still using POP3. As a free IMAP alternative, AOL has IMAP and works flawlessly in Thunderbird, Evolution, and KMail. AOL might be worth some consideration.
