I have a Yahoo email account that just got hacked as someone used it to send spam to many of my contacts. I just changed my password. I've been trying to send emails to a few contacts that we're affected but it seems like I'm being prevented by Yahoo to send these emails. It's giving me a message "Your email could not be sent. Retry". I've clicked "Retry" several times but to no avail. Do you know why this is happening?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

We'd need more details... – Erway Software Feb 1 '13 at 20:28
I wonder if it had anything to do with SMTP? Or browser. It was just bizzare. It's working now. The problem happened while I was using Chrome then hours later I logged back in on Yahoo via Firefox and it was able to send the mail. – Christopher Chipps Feb 3 '13 at 6:31
