I'm still tinkering here, trying to get Yahoo+stunnel working to help out Joe Slaven. I still can't get it to work. 

Yahoo userid is y_phsiii. I manually logged into Yahoo and verified that I have the right password.

The config section:
client = yes
accept = localhost:1234
connect = pop.mail.yahoo.com:995
sslVersion = TLSv1.2

Eudora has
for that personality.
