Yahoo limits the number of messages that can be sent per SMTP connection to 5. (see.;%5Fylt=AmQ249AWdyWDPc9ZukN6VGkIJHdG)

We typically have users with large email distribution lists and easily exceed 5 yahoo addresses. Does anyone know how to have Lotus Domino increase the number of connections?

Right now when users send a message with more than 5 the connection get's killed then hangs and tries again later but the process seems to really slow down mail delivery.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If I understand you correctly you are wanting to email FROM a Domino server TO various recipients at Yahoo and you are following suggestions here and are trying to add more concurrent connections.

See here for some help on that - the top two fields in the table would be what you're after.
