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.
