Yahoo Webmail (an error occured when sending the message)

Yahoo Webmail (an error occured when sending the message)

When I create a email using Yahoo Webmail and try and send it it errors out with

"an error occured when sending the message"

the message remains in the draft folder

 

I can duplicate this with Chrome, Firefox and other browsers and different computers.

I have read as many posts as I can on this subject and nothing seems to help. I cant even send an email to myself.

Re: Yahoo Webmail (an error occured when sending the message)

Greetings @BrokenBroken

 

Is this question about a Yahoo account ending in Yahoo.com, an ATT account (att.net, sbcglobal.net, bellsouth.net, etc.), or some other account?

Are you posting this question from the account having this issue?  What was the last time you were able to successfully send emails from this account?  Can you receive emails that are sent to this account from another account?


Please give Kudos for any answer you like

Please note that the classic version of Yahoo Mail will no longer be available after January 30, 2019. At that time, you'll be upgraded to the latest version of Yahoo Mail or basic Mail, depending on your browser's compatibility.

@BrokenBroken

It looks like you were able to send a few emails after you fixed the sending name. Does everything seem to be working now?
