Hi Regis1, welcome to Peppermint.  There is a multi chat client called Pidgin in the repositories.  It supports Yahoo.  To download it, Open a terminal window with the following keystrokes:
Once that has opened enter the following commands into the terminal window.

Tip: Linux is case sensitive. To reduce typographical errors, click on, Code: [Select] to highlight contents.  Centre click on your mouse while in the terminal to paste contents.

Code: [Select]
apt update && apt install pidgin -y

Hit enter and do the password thing if asked.  Pidgin will now appear in the menu structure: menu>Internet>Pidgin Internet Messenger.  The rest is self explanitory.  I hope this helps, have fun  ;)!!
