    Problems sending emails with Yahoo

    I am getting so frustarted with this!
    I have all of the settings set up to receive Yahoo Mail via Microsoft
    Outlook, but I cannot send emails. In the advanced tab I have the outgoing
    mail SMTP at 465 and it is checked for SSL as is incoming with POP3 set to
    110. This is exactly what Yahoo recommends on their troubleshooting.
    When I am trying to send an email it keeps asking me for my user name and
    password which I am entering correctly and it keeps popping up. I have
    competley uninstalled the free Norton VC which came with the laptop and have
    disabled the email checker on my current VC which is AVG. I just can't think
    of what to do! Any help would be great.

    Who gave you those Yahoo Mail settings?
    Yahoo has several different categories of email accounts, so you have
    to be careful to get the right set of settings for your category.
    Was yours obtained through your ISP or is it a personal account?
    Is it a free account or a paid account?
    US-based free Yahoo accounts have webmail access only, no POP
    access. Windows Mail does not handle Yahoo webmail.
    There are three possible solutions:

    1. How did you access Yahoo mail before? If you are happy with
    webmail via your browser, you can continue to use that.

    2. Pay Yahoo to get their premium "Mail Plus" service:
    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mai...iew/index.html
    and use the special settings for that service:
    http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/mai...op/pop-14.html

    3. Another option is called YPOPs. It is free, but requires some technical
    knowledge to implement:

    There's been no change in policy.
    If your Yahoo account was obtained through your ISP, it is not considered
    to be a free individual account. The so-called 'partnered' accounts have
    different policies, but most have POP access to Yahoo.

    I have been having problems sending mails since 15/8/08, not altered any
    settings, tried altering settings to no avail.
    You could try this.
    Alter your incoming port to 995.
    I have finally resolved the problem I had sending mails with Yahoo through
    Windows Mail.
    It was sooooooooooo simple.
    To anyone having the same problem sending with Yahoo here is my solution.
    Choose Tools then Accounts, highlight your account that you are having
    problems with, click Properties, then under the Security tab change the
    Algoritham setting to DES, click apply then exit tools.
    Now send an E-Mail and it works.
    The above setting will revert back to its original one but you can still
    send mails, whereas before you couldnĀ“t.
    Must have been a gltch in Windows Mail.
