If you use email provider like Gmail or Yahoo first go directly to gmail or yahoo site using Safari and sign into your email that way if it works and no problem with your password logout and close Safari
Then go to Mail app on your mac (Stamp Icon)delete the mail account (don't worry you will not lose your emails) Then start over by setting up your email account all over again this should do the trick.
If you are sent bulk mail then you are not used public email server. Because public email sent normal 10-50 max email one day. If you are bulk mail sent then you are purchase extra space or server. If you are want yahoo through sent email then contact yahoo and ask i want to sent bulk mail so yahoo available space or service and also yahoo charge taken.

Assuming you have chosen the correct server from the list on the bottom of your outgoing message you need to set up both the incoming and out going servers, you should be able to get the details from your account information page then open mail and in the title bar click on MAIL and a drop down menu will appear and select preferences and a new window appears, select accounts and you will see, under account information 3 sections the top is likely filled in being the account type,the second should be there too, the third is the outgoing server, this could be missing or wrong
