KBB mate just what does coming back to me mean - I am assuming that it is either telling you it could not be sent or you are getting a copy and oh you do mean WLM I suppose??

It just means that I get an email back saying it could not be sent for some reason or another. I am not up on all the language of today so there must of been something wrong but I don't know what. To late now, I forgot all about it now.

Ok now just what is the email client you are using? Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, Outlook etc etc?

For example if are using Windows Live Mail like me it is often that the server settings are wrong and and you need to change those. In my pic is what you would need to look for.

Ok so just what is your email client / provider? or are you just accessing emails via Outlook from an IE tab?

Edit just thought maybe a good idea to send a pic of what you see on the screen before you pick email or just detail what you do when you want to send an email.

Hmm not familiar with this service but a bit of Googling I found this https://au.help.yahoo.com/kb/mail-fo...e-sln3532.html which sounds like what is happening. Now on the page there is a Contact us button - have you tried that?

Otherwise have you considered another email service - for example I use Windows Live Mail and I can add accounts of whatever description to it as I have a hotmail, a Telstra bigpond (my broadband provider) and a gmail account all attached to WLM so I can view emails from any of those sources by clicking on them. It would even be possible for me to set up a Yahoo accont and fit it in but I only use hotmail and bigpond as my regular servers and the gmail for recovering Google stuff.

My brother in the UK uses Yahoo I might just ask him if he has come across tis problem himself as I am sure it has to do with the server outgoing mail settings and with Yahoo I don't know what they are.
