    This may sound like a basic question - but when you signed up for Yahoo email, did you verify your account?

    Also, please check that the address you are sending from is the same email address as your yahoo email address. The way this is configured is different from email client to email client. e.g Outlook, Thunderbird etc.. 

    Also, is there an error message number e.g. 553?

Also, it looks like Yahoo are now checking the verification of your account before you can use the SMTP service.
You need to do this..

I have an existing yahoo ID and I can access it. however when anyone emails me, they receive the failure notice saying that my yahoo ID doesn't exist.

Send an email from your Yahoo email account to someone who gets the error message. Ask them to click "reply" to the email you sent and see if you receive the reply ok. Also make sure their address is in your Yahoo email contacts list.

Over the last few weeks I have received emails not addressed to me. some of these emails have been quite distressing as they have asked for payment for various things and services which I know nothing...

Don't panic. Email can be sent by anyone, to anyone, with no verification of anyone's identity. It is not uncommon for scammers to target people with email. They send out 1 million emails in one click, so that even if only 1 in 1,000,000 people will fall for their scam, they still get something. It is illegal, but too difficult and expensive to pursue.

Do not reply, do not pay. Mark messages as spam in Yahoo and go on with your life.

How do I send an e-mail on yahoo?

Click New in the upper left corner to write an email.
On the new page, click in the blank box beside To: and type the email address of the person you're writing to. Add addresses in the Cc: field if you want to send a copy of your email to anyone else. Others receiving this email will be able to see anyone listed in the Cc: line.
Inside Subject:, give your email a title-then write whatever you want to in the message window. That's the big box below.
Sending is the easy part. Once you're done writing (and attaching photos or files if you want... see below), just click Send.
