wp-mail reporting POP3 Error 13 (4 posts)

    My Yahoo email account is configured exactly correctly as confirmed by Yahoo and confirmed by using the same settings in Outlook. wp-mail.php is reporting "POP3 connect: Error [13] [Permission denied]". I looked through the wp-mail.php code but was unable to debug it since I cannot determine where the "connect" function (class?) is located. Can anyone help or point me where to fine connect?

    Code snippet referenced:

    (!$pop3-><strong>connect</strong>(get_option('mailserver_url'),get_option('mailserver_port')))
    	wp_die(wp_specialchars($pop3->ERROR));

    Thanks,
    Pete

    You need to authenticate to send through Yahoo if the email is not going to a yahoo account.

    Thanks for that tip. Do you have a pointer to where/how to authenticate?

    You'll have to google around. I run my own mail server so never had to deal with this problem.
