Is anyone else having problems with sending e mails on Yahoo Mail? I keep getting a message to check my SMTP settings, I have done this and everything looks good. I am getting this problem from my lap top also which would seem to indicate that the problem is with Yahoo.
if you are useing outlook express on Yahoo your setting may have been altered if you udated. to IE7 Open outlook express ( or mail account ) and select accounts, highlight the account then select properties then servers
your mail in ( Pop3) and out ( SMTP ) should have the servers name
down the bottom of that page is the box for authentication tick it open settings and tck the box for log on as required ( ie use same setting as incoming mail )
I am using Thunderbird as my e mail client. Have not altered any of the settings during the last 12 months. As pointed out the problem also occurs on my lap top, again none of the settings have been altered in a long time
If that is the case Yahoo have kept it very quiet. I cannot find anything on the Yahoo Mail site. Can anyone confirm that this is now the case? If it is then Yahoo Mail becomes a very unattractive e mail option.
