Hello all,

I have a normal yahoo account that I want to send mails using it via sstmp, here is my config:
Code:
#
# /etc/ssmtp.conf -- a config file for sSMTP sendmail.
#

# The person who gets all mail for userids < MinUserId
# Make this empty to disable rewriting.
root=******@yahoo.com

# All mail delivered to userid >= MinUserId goes to user, not root.
#MinUserId=1000

# The place where the mail goes. The actual machine name is required
# no MX records are consulted. Commonly mailhosts are named mail.domain.com
# The example will fit if you are in domain.com and your mailhub is so named.
mailhub=smtp.mail.yahoo.com:465

# Example for SMTP port number 2525
# mailhub=mail.your.domain:2525
# Example for SMTP port number 25 (Standard/RFC)
# mailhub=mail.your.domain       
# Example for SSL encrypted connection
# mailhub=mail.your.domain:465

# Where will the mail seem to come from?
#rewriteDomain=

# The full hostname

# Gentoo bug #47562
# Commenting the following line will force ssmtp to figure
# out the hostname itself.

# hostname=_HOSTNAME_

# Set this to never rewrite the "From:" line (unless not given) and to
# use that address in the "from line" of the envelope.
#FromLineOverride=YES

# Use SSL/TLS to send secure messages to server.
#UseTLS=YES

# Use SSL/TLS certificate to authenticate against smtp host.
#UseTLSCert=YES

# Use this RSA certificate.
#TLSCert=/etc/ssl/certs/ssmtp.pem

# Get enhanced (*really* enhanced) debugging information in the logs
# If you want to have debugging of the config file parsing, move this option
# to the top of the config file and uncomment
#Debug=YES
AuthUser=******
AuthPass=******
UseSTARTTLS=YES

but when I try to send a mail, I get this:
Code:
ssmtp ******@yahoo.com< msg.txt
ssmtp: Cannot open smtp.mail.yahoo.com:465


any idea why? cannot connect? has any got this to work with yahoo?

You need a Plus account which currently costs $19.99 a year. Then use,

plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com:465

Then you'll need,

UseTLS=YES

Comment out (or delete)

#UseSTARTTLS=YES

I'm not going to pay for that, the value isn't worth it.

I've managed to make it work with GMX.

It's worth it for me. Glad you found a solution.
