Other than filling up the correct fields, make sure to enable "Allow apps that use less secure sign-in" (according to Yahoo, this have some security risks)

I installed this but found the plugin defaults to smtp.mail.yahoo.com for the server host name. If you are a aabaco small business customer your hostname is smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com. I've tried two or three other smtp plug ins and have not gotten any to work with yahoo small business email. Consistent problem getting rejected on login.
