Omer Mushahwar :

Essentially your outgoing email server settings should match this


Outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings:


SMTP server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com


Use SSL


Port: 465


Use authentication


Credentials:


Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (this is the same as your email address but without the "@yahoo.com"; for example, it might be "brighthub2010")


Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address (for example,[email protected])


Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password
