hello sir/madam, if you have adjusted your SMTP server, and you're still experiencing a problem, you may need to use an alternate port. In an attempt to control spam, some Internet service providers now block port 25, which means you may need to use port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. just go to your email configuration and then change your smtp port number to 587 and you will be able to send. if you still have problems please let me know. i will be here waiting for your reply. Regards
Jerry, I can't find my answer
Jerry, I have to leave can I try this later or get back to you?
yes, i will be here waiting.regards
