I'm having problems setting up FileMaker Pro to email from a Yahoo account.  My settings are as follows:

SMTP server address: ""

Entered port: 465

Connection Encryption: SSL

Authentication: Plain

Entered user name: my full email address with

Entered my password in quotes.


I get Error 1506, Email message could not be sent successfully.


I also selected the lower security requirement for the Yahoo account to prevent the Yahoo server from blocking the FileMaker Pro email.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
