Errors Sending Mail (SMTP)
The Yahoo Business Email SMTP server requires authentication. To learn how to configure your desktop email client, please choose from the following programs:
- Microsoft Outlook 2010
- Microsoft Outlook 2007
- Microsoft Outlook 2002 (XP) and 2003
- Microsoft Outlook 98 and 2000
- Microsoft Outlook Express
- Microsoft Outlook Express for Macintosh
- Mozilla Thunderbird
- Eudora 5.1 and higher
- Netscape Mail: all versions
- IncrediMail Build 618 and higher
- Entourage 2001 and higher
- Mac Mail
If your program and version are not listed above, consult your program's help files for information about configuring SMTP settings.
Please make sure that you have entered your Yahoo Business Email address as the "From" address in your email client. You will not be able to send mail if you have entered another address.
Note that Yahoo limits messages sent via SMTP to 500 per day, and each message can be sent to only 100 recipients at once. If you're trying to send an email to at most 100 recipients, you will see an error telling you that some of your contacts did not receive the message. Please try resending your message but limiting your recipient list to fewer than 100.
Important note: If you have tried the above steps and continue to have problems sending mail, your Internet service provider (ISP) may not allow its users to send messages with other companies' SMTP outgoing mail servers. If you have set the "Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server" field in Yahoo Business Email to smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com, have set your client to use authenticated SMTP, and find that you can receive but cannot send messages, you may have to use your ISP's SMTP server address rather than Yahoo's.

If you're unable to send email, try using alternate non-SSL port 587 when sending via Yahoo's SMTP server. Review you email programs help files or account set up instructions for information about changing the port number.
