The information from yahoo help pages is:

==============================
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server

  • Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Port - 465 or 587
  • Requires SSL - Yes
  • Requires TLS - Yes (if available)
  • Requires authentication - Yes
Your login info

  • Email address - Your full email address ([email protected].)
  • Password - Your account's password.
  • Requires authentication - Yes
==============================
Not sure how to set up TLS or authentication under Option - Internet, or elsewhere.

TIA for any help...
 
Rex,

When doing: [sendmail /v [email protected] testing bodytesting] the EHLO line below mean?

I do have under SET /p [COMPUTERNAME=GALLOWAY-HP]

Connecting to mail server.
Connected.

EHLO Galloway-HP

And I do have the correct email address under options > Internet tab.....

If you're asking what the EHLO is ... it (or perhaps the older HELO) is the expected first thing a client says after the server says "220 [my name is] ... ready". It's just a "handshake" (and my name is ...). Typically nothing depends on it. You should see how common "EHLO localhost" is!
 
Now I am getting:

sendmail /v [email protected] testing bodytesting
Connecting to mail server.

220 smtp.mail.yahoo.com ESMTP ready
EHLO Galloway-HP
250-smtp.mail.yahoo.com

RSET
250 flushed
MAIL FROM: <charlesgalloway>
501 Syntax error in arguments
TCC: SMTP protocol error. 501 Syntax error in arguments.

I searched online and it seems it's the < and > around the MAIL FROM charlesgalloway line.

I'm pretty sure <> are part of the SMTP protocol. I just looked at about 4000 mail deliveries to my work computer. Every one has the <>.

However, it could be the lack of a valid email address in the "MAIL FROM". In Option\Internet\SMTP, try making "Address" a complete email address.
 
Thank you Rex and Vince for helping me solve the emailing from Yahoo yesterday. I think it would help if the Help / Docs would say that the valuses are only read on startup - not during TCC or TCMD running. Maybe you can help with another Yahoo problem - which I shall post shortly!
