    Hello, I use gmail and I've imported an yahoo account. I can't send mails with it though, it always bounces back. This is the error:

    Final-Recipient: rfc822; ******@gmail.com
    Action: failed
    Status: 5.7.1
    Remote-MTA: dns; gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com. (108.177.13.27, the server for
    the domain gmail.com.)
    Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550-5.7.1 Unauthenticated email from yahoo.com is not accepted due to domain's

    To send email as a @yahoo.com you must use the Yahoo email services. To prevent spam and abuse, their policy tells mailbox providers not to accept Yahoo emails from 3rd parties.
