Cannot connect to Yahoo ISP after Download of 17.0.9 and Eudora Settings Import

Posted

I downloaded TB 17.0.9 and imported my Eudora settings, etc. I've spent hours going through the help articles but can't seem to figure out the problem I'm experiencing connecting to Yahoo. I cannot download or send. When checking for new mail TB shows connecting to smtp.att.yahoo.com, but nothing downloads. When sending it shows the connection, but times out without sending. All of the settings were set from my Eudora import, and all appear correct. Help please!
