    I recently changed ISP's to one that does not provide email so i am now using yahoo as an SMTP server. In configuration i have " mail.yahoo.com " in ISP IP address i have "www.yahoo.com " and in your email address i have the addy i want to have test sent to, I keep getting an error message "Authentication required " and a url for a yahoo mail help page that does not help at all. I use Mozilla Thunderbird as an email client. Suggestions anyone ?

    Hello!
    Guess this has to do with yahoo being web-based only; longer ago what you try was possible. If you would try this via your normal email client you would get the same error message.

    Hi Mike,
    As many email clients don't support webbased email like Hotmail, Yahoo, ...
    you've to use a third party software like Freepops.

    For Yahoo, if you have POP access you can follow the setup instructions at:

    I hope that can help you. ;)
