I'm able to recieve yahoo email and delete email from outlook 2003 but it won't send from outlook 2003.  My key settings are attached in the jpg.  I've read a few other outlook 2003 answers but none seem to help.

Thanks

1. Your outgoing server requires authentication
2. Under advanced the smtp server requires SSL and is on port 465

Hi Cuteadder,

Unfortunately neither of those suggestions worked.  I keep getting an "Enter Newtwork Password" box appear.

Where in the world are you?

I'm in England and use:

smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk and SSL (same settings as my incoming server) and SSL on 465

Found this on Yahoo...

Incoming Mail (POP3) Server: plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 995)
Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com (Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication)
Account Name/Login Name: Your Yahoo! Mail ID (your email address without the "@yahoo.com")
Email Address: Your Yahoo! Mail address (e.g., user@yahoo.com)
Password: Your Yahoo! Mail password

Hi,

I'm in the UK too.  Again thiee settings do not seem to help and by using POP3 port 995 creates a further error of not being able to connect to the incoming server.

Would it be anything to do with my ISP who is Tiscali?

Hi,

All sorted thanks!  I think the main problem was my servers were *.yahoo.com and yours *.yahoo.co.uk!  It always had worked with the yahoo.com ones though, weird.

Thanks for sorting that annoying problem out!

Jon.
