Should I change my IMAP email settings?

Verizon just emailed me with new settings to improve security:

Incoming mail server settings
POP server: incoming.yahoo.verizon.net
Port: 995
Outgoing mail server SMTP settings
SMTP server: outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net
Port: 465

But these are POP settings. I use IMAP settings, as follows.
In: imap.mail.yahoo.com - port 993
Out: smtp.mail.yahoo.com - port 465

These settings work great for IMAP. Should I change 993 to 995 and keep the same IMAP server? Or is there a Yahoo-Verizon IMAP server that I don't know about?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Continue using your current setting. If you start having trouble accessing your email account, please switch to the POP settings.
