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. jsmith@registered_domain.com) as opposed to just the "jsmith" from the previous example, followed by "@smtp_server_FQDN" (firstname.lastname@example.org in this example). No matter what is entered in the field for user name and password, program appears to be sending user name as email@example.com (in this example) instead of the entered jsmith@registered_domain.com. 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.
