using Outlook 2007 with Windows Vista, connecting to Yahoo and cannot send
emails. I have good internet connection and using Norton AntiVirus. I recieve
emails fine. I have checked the smtp and changed the settings to yahoo's
recommendations, does not work. Looked at the Office Outlook website and was
told to check Mail in the Control Panel and there is none. I have checked the
diagnostic on outlook and says it is good. I have checked these discussion
groups and found where there are different numbers to enter and tried those
and they do not work. Running out of things to try.

Yahoo WHAT? You never specified the top-level domain (.com, .net, .org,
etc). Only a few Yahoo regional domains permit access to their POP/SMTP
mail hosts by freebie accounts. Most Yahoo domains require that you have a
PAID account to access their servers. Do you have a paid account at Yahoo?

I have sbcglobal.net which goes through Yahoo. I accessed my account
information and entered the POP/SMTP information given. I don't know if this
is a paid account or not. I assumed since it goes through the sbc

Can "not send" and "does not go" tells no one anything about what you do
when trying to send and what, if any, error message appears. You left it
completely vague as to what you think "send" means. Did the item get sent
to your SMTP mail server or did it never leave Outlook?
Did you get an error message during the send operation?
Is the item still sitting in the Outbox folder in Outlook?
Or did it get moved into the Sent Items folder?
