SMTP Email Settings to send from Yahoo Email Addresses

With SliQ Invoicing, if you want to use a Yahoo email address as your company email and send mail via SMTP, e.g. because you want to bulk send invoices and quotes, please use the following settings.

1. If you have a yahoo.com email address, e.g. myname@yahoo.com, use the following:

On the SMTP Details tab on the Email Options dialog:

SMTP Server Address: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
SMTP Port: 465
From Email Address: your email address, e.g. myname@yahoo.com
Use SLL: check this box

On the SMTP Authorisation tab on the Email Options dialog:

SMTP Server Username: your email address, e.g. myname@yahoo.com
SMTP Server Password: the password for your email account, e.g. for your myname@yahoo.com account.

2. If you have a country-specific Yahoo email address, e.g. a yahoo.co.uk email address such as myname@yahoo.co.uk, the settings are the same as in example 1 above, except that the SMTP server is now smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk. For example for a UK Yahoo email address such as myname@yahoo.co.uk, use:

On the SMTP Details tab on the Email Options dialog:

SMTP Server Address: smtp.mail.yahoo.co.uk
SMTP Port: 465
From Email Address: your email address, e.g. myname@yahoo.co.uk
Use SLL: check this box

On the SMTP Authorisation tab on the Email Options dialog:

SMTP Server Username: your email address, e.g. myname@yahoo.co.uk
SMTP Server Password: the password for your email account, e.g. for your myname@yahoo.co.uk account.

NOTE: If you have two-step verification set for your Yahoo login, SliQ will not be able to send emails via Yahoo SMTP until you create an App password and enter this into the SMTP Authorisation tab on the Email Options dialog for the SMTP server password. For help on creating App passwords in Yahoo, see:
