By your description, it looks like your yahoo mail is trying to use your apple incoming/outgoing server. This would be the equivilant of asking Amazon to deliver a USPS letter. The two accounts don’t share that type of sending/recieving settings.

The easiest way to resolve this issue is to remove the account and re-add it. That should reset the incoming/outgoing server settings and you would be good to go from there. You do not lose email in the process. All your email lives in the cloud within both yahoo and Apple email accounts.
