    10.6.8 is Snow Leopard.   Your sendmail server settings vary depending on the application for Mail.  The built-in application, Mail offers SMTP without password through your internet access provider, or through other providers with password authentication.  Whomever gives you e-mail access should have sendmail settings depending on whether or not they give you internet access or not.    Who gives you e-mail access?  Who gives you internet access?

    It appears you might need a Yahoo plus account to utilize it as an SMTP server.    The server address is


    Other than that, I would contact Yahoo support directly.  Ask them if they require password authentication. If they do, usually your e-mail address is your username.  Often they require port 587, 2626, or 2662.  Only Yahoo would know for certain which one to use.
