Fix an SBC Yahoo outgoing email issue with .Mac
Authored by: speedyg on Mar 02, '05 02:52:07AM

I got around this my simply using their outgoing smtp server as mine. It means opening the prefs on the account and setting the smtp server to: mail.swbell.net or in some cases mail.sbcglobal.yahoo.com. either way they will accept your outgoing mail and deliver it for you. Consider it like dropping the mail in the mailbox down the street instead of taking it all the way to your P.O. Box at the local Post Office. They don't care what you send as long as its not SPAM nor mass bulk mail.

Hope this helps, Its better than opening up a security hole for zombied winders machines.
