Hi I'm having problems with my BT Yahoo email in both Oulook Express and Thunderbird. I can receive email fine, problem is I can't send it. This started happening 4 days ago. All my SMTP settings are fine. Just to be sure, I tried setting up my Gmail POP account in Outlook and this worked fine for both sending and receiving. I have phoned BT about this but they are worse than useless. The "offshore" "support" ran a remote desktop session on my PC 3 times and just fiddled about with the SMTP settings to no avail. Their excuses were "the values need changed by the system vendor" - "your pw5 file is corrupt" - "Yahoo's authentication isn't working". The 3rd one seemed most likely, and said they would call me back within 24 hours, but that was 2 days ago. I still have the problem. I'm fed up with BT's pitiful excuse for customer support.
Does anyone access their Yahoo mail from Outlook or Thunderbird? If so, is anyone else having problems sending mail?
