['Mailbox Unavailable']Error in sendemail command


Configuring emails to be sent from Splunk on a gmail ID works fine but I am facing an error while trying to configure splunk email settings using my yahoo account.

The following steps were followed to achieve the same but to no avail:

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server

Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Port - 465 or 587
Requires SSL - Yes
Requires TLS - Yes (if available)
Requires authentication - Yes
Additional details are available on this link

When sending mails using the sendemail command, it gives an error saying MailBox Unavailable.

I would appreciate help from anyone who can help me resolve this issue
