I'm trying to send an email using SendMail to the smtp of Yahoo mail, which is smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
I get the error (in journal) "2006.06.06 19:30:23 Mail: error connecting to smtp.mail.yahoo.com".
Is there a particular problem with Yahoo?

Could you provide us with the screenshot of the following window: the Email tab in the Tools->Options menu?
Perhaps, it is necessary to specify the port number.
And refer to Yahoo support service, please.

I remember reading somewhere that in order to use SendMail you have to use the SMTP server of your ISP, which is probably not Yahoo. Look at the settings of your e-mail program (if you use your ISP's e-mail server), that should get you started.

I just looked at the settings I use and they include a port number (I have outgoing. verizon.net:25).

You have to configure your Yahoo>options>POP and Redirection and select WEB and POP access.

At MT4 port number is 25.

My yahoo is portuguese but I think you can understand what I said.
