To add your Yahoo mail to Nimble, you must connect it as an IMAP email account. Here are the steps to set up Yahoo IMAP in Nimble:

1. Go to your Settings >> Networks & Imports in Nimble

2. Click on Add an IMAP Account

3. Enter the following information:
Username: Your Yahoo Email
Password: Your Yahoo Email Password
IMAP Server:
Port: 993
SMTP Server:
Port: 465
4. Once validated, Nimble will ask you to map in your folders from Yahoo

Please note that if you are experiencing difficulties with connecting your Yahoo account, you may need to disable two-step authentication and generate an app password to access Yahoo Mail in Nimble.
