Apparently, Windows Live Mail (WLM) is set as your default program.
which is why it opens when you try to send from another program.
Also apparently, your Yahoo account is set up in WLM without the option
to Leave a copy of messages on the server (Tools, Accounts, Mail,
Properties, Advanced). You can change that if you like.
Are you getting any error message when you try to send? It could be
because Yahoo requires SMTP Authentication and SSL on port 465. The
account settings should be the same as you have in Windows Mail.
WLM can co-exist with the Vista Windows Mail (WM) although only one can
be the default mail program.
You can also uninstall WLM if you like, but not WM.
But before deleting any mail accounts or uninstalling anything, make
sure that you have your mail messages backed up.
