SBC/AT&T Yahoo have changed something. See if this topic helps you. http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=483000

The user name you need is the sbcglobal user name, not the Yahoo user name. It should end with @sbcglobal.net

BTW, you do not need the webmail extension for SBCGlobal Yahoo. That is only needed for the free USA Yahoo accounts.

So you have both the SBCGlobal Yahoo and a free Yahoo account? Either way, you still need to use the SBCGlobal user name with the SBCGlobal SMTP server.

Use their SMTP server. That's the best way.
