Please please help. I have been quite happily using Thunderbird for some while now but lately I have an intermittent error when i try to send "Sending of the message failed. The message could not be sent because the connection to Outgoing server (SMTP) smtp.mail.yahoo.com timed out. Try again."

I have tried disabling windows defender firewall and that has no impact at all. I have tried clearing the cache and sometimes it would fix the problem and so I am able to send but then the problem would reoccurred again. I am at my wit's end. Please please see if you can help me. Much appreciated.
