Windows Live on my Dell laptop with Windows 10 can receive Yahoo emails but will not send - always gives smpt error. It can send mail from other mail accounts though (like gmail).

Outlook 2019 with the same imap/smtp settings as in Windows Live sends with no problem. I tried setting app-specific password for Yahoo- still does not work. Windows Live with the same smtp settings on my older Windows 7 sends Yahoo mail with no problem.

So, it seems, the smtp issue with Windows Live is only on Windows 10 and only with Yahoo mail. I do realize, MSFT no longer supports windows live, but hope someone could still provide some insights.
