trying to set Thunderbird to receive my

Trying to set Thunderbird to receive my Yahoo.Xtra mail. I have got it to the stage where I can receive emails ok, but just cannot configure it to send them. Yahoo said to use these settings "Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server: Use SSL, port:465 and enable SMTP server authentication". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Try this setting .. on port 587 (no SSL on either).Tick in "My server requires authentication"
ALSO check Firewall allows port 587
