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
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.
