send patches using git using yahoo mail server

ABOUT git

Git (/ɡɪt/[7]) is a distributed version control system for tracking changes in source code during software development.[8] It is designed for coordinating work among programmers, but it can be used to track changes in any set of files. Its goals include speed,[9] data integrity,[10] and support for distributed, non-linear workflows.

MAY BE CORRECT SETTINGS for “PLUS”
[bash]
git config –global sendemail.smtpserver plus.smtp.mail.yahoo.com
git config –global sendemail.smtpserverport 465
git config –global sendemail.smtpencryption ssl
[/bash]

I THINK FOLLOWING SETTING ARE NOT FULLY CORRECT
[bash]
$ git config –global sendemail.smtpserver smtp.mail.yahoo.com
$ git config –global sendemail.smtpserverport 4100
$ git config –global sendemail.smtpencryption ssl
$ git config –global sendemail.smtpuser your_yahoo_mail_address
[/bash]
Now it’s ready: the command git send-email patch-name will ask you for some info about the email sender (you can change the From: field) and recipient, your Gmail password and then it will send the email.

Optionally, it is possible to skip the password prompt by adding it to the configuration with:
$ git config –global sendemail.smtppass your_password
