A few days ago my yahoo mail pop account stopped sending outgoing mail with attachments. I am using mail on a mac and i keep getting a message that says the yahoo outgoing mail server is not working. I checked the settings and they are correct.
And the attachments are just pdfs, 284 kb.

    Which software are you using as your mail client?

    Some SMTP servers have to be set up in a specific way:


    1. The outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication

    2. Use the same settings as the incoming mail server (POP) or

    3. Log on to incoming mail server before sending mail
    Especially 2.) & 3.) are often overlooked. Try either setting and see if that fixes the problem.
    You find all this settings in your account settings/properties.

    Please report back if this helped.

Did you take a microsoft update recently? they patched some holes last week, it may be tripping their security protocal that may be the reason it stoped. Try a restore back to when it started, otherwise it's just a guess, as if you didn't change anything, then someone did it for you like Bill Gates. You could also check your security settings in your browser, that may have been elevated thus preventing the email from working the way you like, only one more thing it could be, is that some email is stuck in your outbox, check that first, by going in and looking and possibly getting into safe mode to revove the emai that may be jamming you up.

I can recieve an E Mail But can not send one


Which is ur e-mail client i.e. r u using outlook express or windows mail or windows live mail in order to send & receive emails from ur e-mail Id????
If yes then i think u might not have set the correct address of the SMTP server of ur mail client while configuring windows mail or outlook express or windows live mail on ur notebook-->SMTP server enables u to send e-mails-->anyways follow these steps to set the correct SMTP server address:
open the outlook express or windows mail or windows live mail-->Click on 'tools' option-->then click on the option 'accounts'-->a window will open with a list of accounts or only one account depending on the number of accounts u have configured with outlook express-->select the account from which u can receive mail but cant send one-->if u r not sure which account it is then most likely it would be the default one-->After selecting the particular account click on 'properties'-->properties window will open up-->select the 'servers' tab-->under 'server information' u will find 'outgoing mail(SMTP)'-->fill the proper address of the SMTP-->u will find the proper address of the SMTP server thru google also ensure that u have selected the 'My server requires authentication' checkbox on the 'servers' tab itself-->if u r using gmail then search for the SMTP address of gmail in google & same for the others also such as yahoo, rediff etc.

Cannot send, reply or forward my Yahoo e-mail


In microsoft outlook, clik on Tools> E-mail accounts>View or change existing e-mail accounts>change > correct outgoing mail server (SMTP) settings and press Test Account Settings.
If you receive a Task error message: ( X Send test e-mail message "Failed" ) perhaps you have been disconnected by your e-mail provider.
