    Double check to see if you did it as described below...If it is try another browser

    This link covers it... http://help.yahoo.com/kb/index?page=content&id=SLN...

    ====================================

    Hover your pointer over the GEAR...upper right...

    Select SETTINGS..(Mail Options in the older format)

    Click on ACCOUNTS and then click on EDIT to

    the right of your email address. Enter the SENDING

    I recommend you try a different browser

    Temporary glitches do happen and most of the time Yahoo is

    aware of it and is presently trying to resolve the issue. If you have

    the patience you can wait until Yahoo corrects the problem. If you

    don't have the patience you can switch to another browser to see if it

    helps...you can switch back to see if the problem has corrected itself.

    ====================================

    have the supported browsers by Yahoo
