Ok , Let me check the manual settings.

Nimman :

Can you wait a minute ?

Ok. Try this

Use Incoming POP pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com

Nimman :

Outgoing SMTP smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com

Customer:

that is how it is set now

Nimman :

Authentication is enabled ?

Customer:

yes

Nimman :

Do you have any antivirus enabled ?

Incoming port 995

Check if these are correct .

Type your name into the "Name" box. Type your complete email address, such as "[email protected]," into the "E-mail Address" box. Enter your SBC Global password XXXXX the "Password" and "Retype Password" boxes. Type "pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com" as the "Incoming" server and "smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com" as the "Outgoing" server. Click "More Settings."


Go to the "General" tab. Type "SBC Yahoo!" under "Mail Account." Go to the "Outgoing Server" tab. Select "My Outgoing Server (SMTP) Requires Authentication" and "Use Same Settings as My Incoming Mail Server." Click "OK." Click "Next." Click "Finish."
