Mail: error connecting to…

This usually means the Server is entered wrongly.


Mail: 535 5.7.0 Incorrect username or password
This means your email address or password is entered wrongly.


Mail: 553 From address not verified
This means you’ve just created your Yahoo email account and Yahoo needs you to verify the email. Login to the website and check if Yahoo requires you to enter either an alternate email contact or complete a mobile verification etc.


Mail: login to smtp….25 failed
This means that your domain doesn’t match your email.
If your email is ahlee@yahoo.com then your server should be smtp.mail.yahoo.com:25
Or if your email address is ahlee@yahoo.com.sg then your server should be smtp.mail.yahoo.com.sg:25

In some countries, port 25 is blocked. If you’re still facing problems, please try port 587. (Thanks to our student Dennis Lee who shared this info)

Eg: Your email is johntan@yahoo.com, then use smtp.mail.yahoo.com:587

Your email is johntan@yahoo.com.sg then use smtp.mail.yahoo.com.sg:587
