Yahoo Business Mail requires logging in on smtp server to send mail. they use a
user name equal to your actual full email address (ex. as opposed to just the "jsmith" from the previous
example, followed by "@smtp_server_FQDN" ( in this
example).  No matter what is entered in the field for user name and password,
program appears to be sending user name as (in
this example)  instead of the entered  Program
fails to connect to smtp server using supplied credentials.  Credentials
verified correct, working fine with Outlook client.  Error duplicated on ver 1.1
and 1.2a build of 9/08/2002.  Yahoo's directions for older netscape clients
instructs to replace @ sign with % which seems to have the effect of doing
nothing with Mozilla client.
