    That depends. The Android operating system supports both IMAP and POP3 incoming email, and SMTP outgoing mail. Yahoo free email is IMAP incoming and SMTP outgoing for the free client. The IMAP server is imap.n.mail.yahoo.com and the SMTP server is smtp.mobile.mail.yahoo.com. Use the default ports and don’t use any security settings.

    That said, not all Android DEVICES support everything Android supports. That’s the thing about open source software. Every manufacturer can alter it to their own needs and uses. Check the documentation that came with the device, and any online documentation you can find to see if the tablet supports IMAP. If it supports email at all, it will support SMTP.

    You don’t say what tablet you bought. If it’s one of the Chinese knockoffs, it may not support everything Android does. That low price does come with some limitations.
