OSX Yosemite security update broke email login

I recently did a OSX security update that has moved login data into a generic "Internet Accounts" pref page.
It seems to have broken Mails ability to login to plusnet mail servers.
Anyone else seen this or know how to fix it?

Thanks yes finding those other threads now.  Just didnt spot the different topics.   Very frustrated ;-)
[Moderator's note by Jim (Oldjim):  Full quote of preceding post removed as per the Forum Rule]
As suggested in the posts I set the following and it now works..
Do this in advance tab from Mail Prefs
Important bits being Set Auto detect ON  at top
and DONT "use ssl" (after port)
