Getting Hotmail and Yahoo in Thunderbird - Webmail setup problem


As I needed my Free Hotmail and Yahoo mail to work in Thunderbird I installed the webmail, hotmail and yahoo extensions. I set them up as per the instruction in webmail site.

Now the problem is the extension is not working. Must be I have made some error in setting things up.

I am getting "Sending of username did not succeed. Mail server localhost responded: yahoo.com is a unsupported domain".

My setup details are :
-------------------------------------
The details are
Webmail - 1.2.1 (latest)
Webmail Hotmail - 1.2.0 (latest)
Webmail Yahoo - 1.2.0 (latest)

All the three extensions are running.

For Webmail my settings are :
Pop : 1111
SMTP : 1112
IMAP : 1027
---------------------------------

=> All three running (Green light is on). But when I click the Domain tab in Webmail Options, there is no domain showing up.

=> In the Hotmail and Yahoo options also I can see the list of domains but when clicking on Accounts tab it says "No Hotmail Accounts found" or "No Yahoo Accounts found".

=> I have setup my Yahoo and Homail accounts as "Webmail" in the type of accounts. I chose "Email account" to start with, but I was getting "Could not connect to server localhost, connection refused".

Please help me.
