I am running an iMac, and every time I try to delete my bulk mail, I get the message "The connection to the server imap4-rr.mail.us.am0.yahoodns.net on port 993 timed out." Any ideas how to fix this?

Every time I try to delete my bulk mail on my iMac, I get the following message:

 

# 0f messages could not be moved to the mailbox “Trash-Yahoo!”

 

The connection to the server “iamp4-rr.mail.us.am0.yahoodns.net” on port 993 timed out

 

Any Idres?

Have you tried contacting Yahoo?

The first thought would be that it is an issue on Yahoo's end.

The other option if you have the Yahoo email account setup as an IMAP account is to delete it and then set it up again. If it is an IMAP account, you will not lose any messages as part of this process. DO NOT do this if you have it setup as a POP email account.

It's Yahoo being Yahoo, has nothing to do with your phone/iMac

 

Here's a temp workaround until they get the problem fixed. It won't be as fast as the imap, but it will work as a temp work around until the imap gets fixed.

You could also just use the web browser and view your emails.

 

  • Incoming mail server settings:
    • POP server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
    • Use SSL
    • Port: 995
  • Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings:
    • SMTP server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    • Use SSL
    • Port: 465
    • Use authentication
  • Email address: Your Yahoo! Mail email address (for example,jo.bloggs@yahoo.com)
  • Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password
  • Account name/sign-in name: Your Yahoo! ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com" at the end; for example, "jo.bloggs")

 

 

Don't forget to go into smtp setting and add the username and password there if you want to send mail  After yahoo gets the imap issue fixed, just disable this account in mail settings to use as a backup in case yahoo imap goes down again.

This seems to be an issue with Mac mail.  I had the same problem.  However, when I went directly to Yahoo mail from Safari, I was able to delete all the trash and bulk emails.  Don't know what the Mac mail fix might be.
