Customer Question
Hi Yahoo - I...

Hi Yahoo - I have a bonafide email list of friends who like to receive our updates that I send to every few weeks in groups of 100 or less - (about 1100 total) -- but with my latest release I keep getting messages that will not allow them to go through - see message below - and also states that certain addresses have a problem but they regularly work

Technician's Assistant: Just to clarify, what email service provider are you using?

The server “smtp.mail.yahoo.com” rejected the address “*****@******.***
***@******.******@******.***”.The server response was: Syntax error in argumentsSelect a different outgoing mail server from the list below or click Try Later to leave the message in your Outbox until it can be sent.

Technician's Assistant: Have you installed any updates recently?

I believe it is Yahoo - I am on a MacBook Pro and an iPhone

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

I just want to know what is the problem and what I can do to rectify it
