Solution :

 After many hours of searching & researching , I have finally got the
following hardware & software to perform SMTP authentication with Yahoo
email ;

 Hardware :

 Apple Macintosh SE/30 128Mb, 2.0Gb with Asante NIC

 Software :

 OS :

 Apple Mac OS 7.5.5
(Upgraded from Apple Mac OS 7.5.3 & Upgrade to Open Transport 1.1.2)

Application :

 Eudora v3.0 Pro
(Upgraded from Eudora v3.0 Pro to v3.1.3)

 Utilities :

Baton Mail

Procedural Method :

 1. Install Apple Mac OS 7.5.3 onto the Apple Mac SE/30

 2. Install Apple Mac OS 7.5.5 onto the Apple Mac SE/30 (Upgrade 7.5.3 to

3. Install Open Transport v1.1.2 onto the Apple Mac SE/30

 4. Install Baton Mail v0.9.7.1b (Previous Version, Not Current Version)

 5. Install Eudora Pro v3.0

 Resources :

 Apple Mac OS 7.5.3 :

 Apple Mac OS 7.5.5 :

 Apple Open Transport v1.1.2 :

 Baton Mail v0.9.7.1b :

 Observations :

 I found that the latest version of Baton Mail (Current Version)
to be unstable & the (Previous Version) to more stable with Apple
Mac OS 7.5.5 & Open Transport v1.1.2.

I have also noticed that when using Baton Mail that when you
select "Status" from the Pull Down Menu "File" & it displays the Status of
the operation that Baton Mail is performing - You cannot select any other
icons - My only work around was to select "Status" again & leave Baton
Mail to bring up the Status Window.

Also when configuring Baton Mail, I found I needed to enter the details
into the Default Configuration & not use the Account Profile Configuration
feature - which normally works, when running on Apple Mac OS 7.6.1.

Upgrading to Open Transport v1.1.2, seems to allow Baton Mail v0.9.8.1b &
v0.9.7.1b to run on Apple Mac OS 7.5.5, although the earlier version is
more stable.

Also I have noticed that when you upgrade from Eudora Pro v3.0 to v3.1.3,
that some of the configuration entries are changed & therefore the
confguration settings detailed below are applicable to Pro v3.0 & not
v3.1.3 - Although if you are upgrading this will not be a problem, which
it will be if installing v3.1.3 directly without upgrading.

 Configuration :

 The following assumes that you are using Yahoo Mail as the email (pop &
smtp) provider, you will need to refer to your email provider & make
appropiate changes to the configuration as required ;
