Looks like your account has a weird sending name on it that our system sees as suspicious. Once you change it to your name, you should be good to go.

Re: Cannot send emails

I will look at this, but wasn't an issue for past years. Sending prob began 2-3 weeks ago. Only changed my password and updated the att business yest.  I get an error message on the Mac when I logout. Red lock w/ line through it "This Connection is not private" and "this website may be impersonating "att.my.yahoo.com" to steel your personal and financial information. You should go back to the previous page."  2 button options: "show details" and "go back", which I never click on. Thank you so much!
