Trouble setting up Yahoo! business mail account in ME


Recommended Posts

I keep getting a socket 10054 error when I try to run a macro that is supposed to send an email message using my Yahoo! business mail account.


Per Yahoo!, the settings on my business mail account should be:


Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.bizmail.yahoo.com

Use SSL, port: 995

Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.bizmail.yahoo.com

Use SSL, port: 465, use authentication

Account name/user name: victor@****.biz

Email address: victor@****.biz

Password: Your Business Email password


And I am using those values in my ME email settings. For login, I am using victor@****.biz, for password I am using the password for my Yahoo! account; for name I am using my name, and for address I am using victor@****.biz.


But when I run the macro, I get "socket error 10054, connection reset by peer."


AFAIK I am following the instructions to set up an email account, but I'm missing something. I think it has more to do with Yahoo! than with ME but any aid would be welcome. Thanks.

Socket error (#10054): Connection reset by peer.


Analyse & Solutions: An existing connection was forcibly closed by the remote host. This normally results if the peer application on the remote host is suddenly stopped, the host is rebooted, the host or remote network interface is disabled, or the remote host uses a hard close (see setsockopt for more information on the SO_LINGER option on the remote socket). This error may also result if a connection was broken due to keep-alive activity detecting a failure while one or more operations are in progress. Operations that were in progress fail with WSAENETRESET. Subsequent operations fail with WSAECONNRESET.
