How to? Setting up SMTP access for Yahoo with TCMD v20

#1
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...

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:

235 2.0.0 OK
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!
