Hum, I'm just doing a bit of testing and so far yahoo is not accepting relay. 
I have to use my yahoo account in the from field. They must have tightened

smtp.mail.yahoo.com

I'll do some further testing and I'll let you know.

Yes, I don't have to authenticate with my provider. That makes life easier, of 
course.
