Did you consider to avoid Nokia Messaging at all?
Nokia E72 » Menu » E-mail » Settings » (do not open, but highlight) Yahoo Mail » Options » Remove Mailbox » Back » New Mailbox » E-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you use that dummy address at the start of the E-mail assistant, you bypass Nokia Messaging and enable the direct IMAP/SMTP client of your Nokia. However, before you do that and becausethe SMTP server of Yahoo Mail is configured in a bad way, please, do this …
In that case, if you need E-mail push (IMAP IDLE), you have to for ProfiMail.

Then let us double-check. Please, to post all of your
Nokia E72 » Menu » E-mail » Settings » email@example.com » Mailbox settings » Advanded mailbox settings » Incoming email settings
As type, you should have select not POP3 but IMAP. Therefore, please, delete and create it again and enter firstname.lastname@example.org only on the first question.
‘email@example.com’ is just to bypass the assistent for Nokia Messaging. After the mailbox was created, you have to change every occurrence of ‘firstname.lastname@example.org’ back to your E-mail address manually. Especially, the user-name in incoming-email settings!
As incoming mail server, you have to use imap.mail.yahoo.com
As outgoing mail server, you have to use smtp.mail.yahoo.com
At the end, as mailbox name, you can change ‘example’ to ‘Yahoo Mail’.
‘My mail’, should be your full/real name.

Because of these uncategorised access-point, we should to double-check the Internet settings as well:
Which network operator do you use, in which country?
Are you able to browse the Nokia Store from within your Nokia E72?
First, let us double-check which access-point Nokia Store is using:
Nokia E72 » Menu » Web » Options » Settings » General » Access point
Is that ‘Always ask’, a destination or an access-point?
Then, we tidy-up:
Nokia E72 » Menu » Control panel » Settings » Connection » Destinations » Options » Default connection » Internet. I guess, you use MTN Web. If yes, you should delete all other access-point except the one which works in Web. Finally, move MTN Web from the uncategorised destination to the to the Internet destination.
Did that help?
MTN WAP is not a good access point because it includes a proxy which might block the TCP ports we need now for Nokia Mail. The old Nokia Messaging worked via HTTP which is not blocked by WAP access points.
Please, have a look at MTN Web » Options » Advanced settings » Proxy server address. This has to be None. Then, go back and open MTN Web again: As ‘Access point name’ try be internet
If that does not work either, try mtndata
If that still does not work, check your remaining data volume (balance) via the phone code *150*1#
If you still have balance, I would call MTN whether you are allowed for Internet access. I cannot check any further from here, because I am not in Uganda. Another trick to test your settings is to find a Wi-Fi. If Yahoo Mail works there, you know it is related to your MTN contract.
