US-based free Yahoo accounts have webmail access only, no
POP/SMTP access. Windows Mail handles POP mail but not
webmail. There are two Yahoo solutions:

1. How did you access Yahoo mail before? If you are happy with
webmail via your browser, you can continue to use that.

2. Pay Yahoo to get their premium "Mail Plus" service:
and use the special settings for that service:

If you are OK with using a non-Yahoo email address, you have two other
3. Use the email address assigned to you by your ISP.
4. Get a free Gmail account.


If you can send I assume you have Yahoo POP3 maybe if ATT is your provider.
Yahoo is partnered with ATT to provide there Email.
Do you use One Care. I do and could receive but not send.
The problem was a security certificate One Care set up.
As for being able to send from a client to free Yahoo....I didn't think that
was possible.
