Yahoo is known to not play nicely with everything. I seem to remember
the underlying issue is that they are very aggressive at throttling
connections they perceive as using too many resources. I think you
might see an improvement if you only use 1 connection per account. So
go to Edit -> Preferences -> Mail Account -> [select account] -> Edit
-> Receiving Options and reduce the "Number of concurrent connections"
to 1.
