#1: smtp.yahoo.co.uk is dying

Posted on 2008-04-18 13:35:01 by Confused

It's getting pretty well impossible to send email by Yahoo in the UK,
using Outlook Express. I can't find anywhere on the Yahoo site to
report this to.

I've had a yahoo email address for years now and I really don't want
to change it.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks.

Perhaps your *ISP*s mailserver (or another mailserver) allows you to
*send* mail with From: set to your Yahoo e-mail address? Mine does and I
use that all the time.

I.e. you *receive (POP/IMAP) mail from Yahoo and you *send* (SMTP)
mail via your ISPs mailserver.

Use your Internet provider's mail server. If you've got a stupid provider
that won't let you send mail with a Yahoo return address (there are some
stupid ones that work this way), then you're boned. Then, the only
suggestion one might offer is to ponder on the old adage "you get what you
pay for".

My yahoo email gets so much spam, I can understand why you don't post
yours publicly. But for a long time, I've posted jak@isp2dial.com on
usenet, very little spam succeeds, and most real mail gets thru. Try
it if you don't believe me. I won't mind, my inbox is quiet. :-)

We use SMTP-AUTH to enforce a user's true envelope MAIL FROM: value on
outbound mail. But the Reply-To: header can be set to any value.

That's good enough for many users.

For the OP ("Confused"):

FYI, I also use YPOPs! [1]. I have to use it because I use free Yahoo
Mail accounts which do not have direct POP access. As I mentioned
earlier, I send via my ISPs mailserver, but as Erik Vastmasd mentioned,
you can also send via YPOPs! I.e. simply put YPOPs! translates HTTP to
POP when receiving and SMTP to HTTP when sending.

[1] <http://yahoopops.sourceforge.net>, redirects to <http://ypopsemail.com>
