    SMTP connection failed when trying to send mail from Yahoo account in Mac Mail

    My default Mac mail is synced up with Yahoo account and now when I just send mails I get the error as "The SMTP connection to server “smtp.mail.yahoo.com” failed" and gives the information as yahoo outgoing mails are offline. How to resolve this problem now? Someone please help.

    Hi....................,

    email-server.jpg

    Change out going SMTP server.
    Mail>Preference>accounts>
    At outgoing mail server drop down the menu
    There choose Edit -Smpt server list.

    -- From the list you need to choose the correct server you want to use.
    -- Default port is highlighted.
    -- Change it to custom and type 10

    ** Now try to send the mail.
    ** When you send the first mail correctly SMTP changes back to default port.

    Thats it.


    Thanks

    You need to modify the settings of SMTP server settings.
    Follow the steps for settings the mail account:

    :: Open the "settings" option from it.


    :: Now here select the "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" option from the entire list.


    :: After that go to the incoming mail Server SMTP and open in the mail account.


    :: Once it opens, you open the labelled “Server” from the Primary Server settings.


    :: Now select the “Never” in the incoming mail Server.


    :: And then configure the SMTP settings.

    so my suggestion to you is that you should have to solve this issue first of all.
    you can do it as follows:::::>>>>

    first of all you have to go to the turn on your mac device.

    after that you have to tap on the menu.

    there you have to tap on the settings.

    then you have to tap on the applications.

    in the applications you have to click on the manage applications,.

    there you have to navigate at the yahoo mail.

    then tap on the options.

    after that tap on the clear the cache.

    that's all.

    restart your mac and enjoy the solution.
