Whenever there are plenty of emails in Outbox being sent, mailbox server is triggered for continuous large number of emails being sent, and won't let an email thru (after 10-15th email smth like that).
Then it triggers an error message in Thunderbird.
Smth like this: "Error entering smtp.mail.yahoo.com server" Ошибка входа на сервер «smtp.mail.yahoo.com»
It pops up from time to time, I think because of the threshold of a server of a number of messages allowed.

QUESTION:
Is there a way to mute/bypass such notification, so it would not require action of clicking OK on that message?
For ex., if there is an error, it would only be logged and then just keep going, trying again?

Yahoo doesn't document the send limits for free accounts but for paid accounts it appears to be 100 recipients / message and 500 emails / day. I'm not aware of a way to disable the error message.

They dropped support for yahoo groups Feb 1, 2020. Using it would have been a way to workaround many of the limits. You could pay for an account that is designed to send lots of mail and use its smtp server with your yahoo account. MailChimp for example has both free and commercial accounts, with "The Free plan includes up to 2,000 contacts and 10,000 sends per month, with a daily send limit of 2,000."

Maybe there a third party macro program to automate closing the error prompts.

e.g. autohotkey, autoit or macro express

Thank you, guys.
I thought to change delay time between messages being sent out, so it wouldn't trigger SMTP of mailbox and as a result error message popping up
