problems sending emails using yahoo’s smtp server

I used yahoo’s smtp server (smtp.mail.yahoo.it) a long time for sending mails through Thunderbird, but recently it stopped working. I always received error messages that my mail was not relayed, but didn’t get a specific error code.
So, after looking around for a long time, I had to change my smt configuratin to the following:

smtp server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Port: 465
Secure Connection: SSL
Username: Userid without @yahoo.it

And this works again.

I’ve been searching around for your site after being referred to them from a colleague and was thrilled when I found it after searching for some time. Being a demanding blogger, I’m happy to see others taking initivative and contributing to the community. Just wanted to comment to show my appreciation for your work as it is very interesting, and many writers do not get acknowledgment they deserve.
