Email issues with Yahoo

PG&E has shut down power to Bald Mountain and Berryessa Peak at about 4AM. We are powering up a generator to return service to Bald Mountain. Service should be restored from Bald Mountain by 9:30AM on Wednesday, 10-09-19.

Yahoo has made changes to their email system servers which is now blocking all email from the AFES/Yolo.net servers. We have been unable to resolve this with Yahoo as they are unresponsive to all requests for support. Gmail, Hotmail, etc. are all still working normally. If any users of the AFES email servers wish to have their email forwarded directly to a gmail or hotmail account please let us know.

If you wish to continue to use your AFES email account, you can create a workaround by:

Create a gmail account. Then in your mail client, Thunderbird, Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Mail, Eudora, etc. you will configure your SMTP servers to smtp.gmail.com using your gmail account credentials for SMTP authentication.

Default SMTP Settings for Gmail
Gmail SMTP server address: smtp.gmail.com
Gmail SMTP username: Your Gmail address (for example, example@gmail.com)
Gmail SMTP password: Your Gmail password.
Gmail SMTP port (TLS): 587.
Gmail SMTP port (SSL): 465.
Gmail SMTP TLS/SSL required: Yes.
