I may simply be too confused to help, but . . Are you *sure* yahoo is your
smtp server? I had used yahoo for a short time, but I had to use my normal
ISP's smtp for outgoing mail. I am still required to use cox's address even
though users send me mail @arrl.net.
If you are indeed using yahoo as an ISP, then I would double check the smtp
settings and verify you are not attempting to *relay* through them
erronously. Also, do you need to pop mail first *then* send?
Good luck to you.
