New Modem Successfully Connected, but Can't Send Email Anymore with Client

I have been using an email client to access my yahoo accounts for awhile now. Today, I got a new modem (the Westell 7500), and for whatever reason, I am only able to receive emails.

 

I can't send any emails, like I did before the switchover to the new modem. I can go to the yahoo web page and send emails that way, but not with my client.

 

I made no changes to any of the settings in my email client.

This is what was working before today's new modem connection:


smtp.att.yahoo.com

secure to dedicated port (TLS)

port 465

with "perform smtp authetication (RFC 2554)"

with "same user/password as for mail retrieval"

no "require secure authentication"

 

 

Those are the settings and what was working prior to the new modem; yes, I even tried changing the port to 587.

 

Any idea what may have happened, keeping in mind I can receive emails.

What do i need to change or fix on the verizon "http://192.168.1.1/htmlV/welcomeMain.htm" page

that is affecting my outgoing mail?

The older westell 6100 modem--I can send email, but not this newer 7500.

I set the firewall to "low" in the 192.168.1.1 set up/config,

and lo and behold: I can now send email.

 

Now my question would be, now that this is on "low," I'm guess my mcAfee firewell set to normal will be adequate to do

what a firewall is supposed to do.
