What are the odds of traffic between the BIS servers and the mail provider being intercepted?
Yahoo is 993 SSL incomig and 465 SSL outgoing for smartphones. There are other ports that work as well for Yahoo. You wouldn't want to use port 110 or 143 - nothing like that.

This is common place practice for smartphones - to SSL enable incoming/outgoing. My Nokia rolled this through automatically.
