Angry need help with sending mail from my linux (fedora 16) server to yahoo

I need help in sending email from my linux server to my yahoo email. All attempts have failed. I kept getting this message in the /etc/mail/maillog:

I remember it took FOREVER to get the send mail working from my Linux machine to the internet. Try looking at this to get started. I was unable to use Yahoo as the gateway, but with authentication I was able to use Googlemail. (Probably doesn't really matter, but they take different approaches to stopping their mail servers from being used by spammers.)

Post your progress here.
