    Hi! Hope someone can help me... I recently set up Outlook 2007 to host my Yahoo mail. Outlook receives without issue, however, it will not send messages. Troubleshooting steps taken without success include:
    • Change Email Account Settings:
      • Outgoing mail server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
      • More settings: Changed port from 25 to 26; also tried 426 - no go
      • Tested with encrytion on/off, still no go
    • Send/Receive:
      • Send All: nothing
      • Progress: hangs at 70% complete
    :thanks:

    Hello,

    Please see the following guide for getting Yahoo mail configured in your Outlook.

    http://www.emailquestions.com/yahoo-mail/863-check-yahoo-mail-plus-pop3-account-outlook-express.html

    The SMTP settings that you need are:

    • Type "plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com" in the Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server box.
    • Under “Outgoing mail Server (SMTP)”, check the box next to “This server requires a secure connection (SSL). Enter port number “465” in the “Outgoing mail (SMTP)” field.
    If you need any additional help please let us know. :welcome:

    -Raymond
