Try:
Under proxy settings, do "Global proxy settings"

I had the same problem

I have two yahoo accounts. One worked fine and second one was disabled. In proxy settings I had "Global proxy settings" so I switched it to "No proxy" and now the disabled yahoo account works.

In AIM account proxy seetings I also set "No proxy" and it works properly too. Even if it connects quite slow...
