This seems easy, but I cannot get Astrometrica  to send MPC reports via Yahoo Mail. I have used the settings recommended by Yahoo but the connection always times out without sending. It has taken about two years to reach the point that I can routinely plate solve and find objects in Astrometrica, and now I have to cut and paste to send reports! Any suggestions welcome.

Michael,

 

maybe post an image of your internet settings page in Astrometrica?

 

I did a quick google and found the server to be smtp.mail.yahoo.com with a port of 465 or 587 with SSL.

I will post a screen shot. The settings you listed are the ones I tried but am still fiddling.
