Allen, welcome to Linux.  I need to point out a few things about mailing 
list manners.  First, do not top post.  We don't read messages from the 
bottom up, but from the top down.

Second, don't hijack a thread.  Your reply to an existing message makes 
life hard for people to follow, especially when some of us sort by thread.

Third, when you do reply to a list message, please, cut out all the 
irrelevant parts so as to make the message as small as possible.  SOme 
people on the list pay for their bandwidth based on the amount of data 
they transfer.  Smaller messages is more efficient and easier to follow.

Okay, got that out of the way, let's see if we can't figure out your 
problem.  What exactly are you trying to do?  You have an AT&T DSL 
service and you're sending mail through your Yahoo account?  I am not 
quite sure I understand the problem with SSL.  Can you provide specific 
error messages?  Or at least more detail on what exactly you are doing?
