Greetings, deekmartin !

Do you use Yahoo SMTP server? Do you have an antivirus scanning your outgoing mail?  Disable it.  Then the outgoing server will be smtp.mail.yahoo.com and port 25.

1. Some ISP block SMTP servers.  So that is why you are getting the relaying error. Change the SMTP port to 587.

2. Check if antivirus email check is slowing sending and receiving.  Disable it. Check if other programs running in the background is interfering. Disable one at a time the Firewall, antispyware, antispam, and all Norton programs.

3. In the account settings, Advanced settings, change the server timeout time from 1 min to 5 min

4. Check if outgoing mail server authentication is required. Select that option in account settings and use same settings as incoming server

Best wishes!
