Thunderbird webmail for Yahoo problem

I am running Thunderbird on Ubuntu 6.06 lt and Yahoo free mail

I have downloaded and install Webmail 1.0.17 and Yahoo 1.1.16 from to the extensions

After setting up Thunderbird account for server localhost and with port 110 I recieve an error message "localhost connection refused"

Tried ports # 5201 and 5209 without any success.
Tried server , and still either timing out or connection refused

Server status shows pop error and smpt error

Log show pop server not started and 0x80004005 error

Have tried different combination without and success.

Thanks in advance for your help

Tb Webmail

Thanks for the reply

After numerous hours of searching forums and reading post

I came across a post suggesting the use of pop 1111 and smtp 1112 as the ports

Installed same and system began receiving e-mail from Yahoo
