Did you already ask your hosting support about the issue. It looks like they have not set up the PHP configuration (PHP.ini file) properly.

The setup they have, has them send email through an SMTP server. From the error, it looks like the SMTP is hosted on Yahoo. However, that SMTP is not accepting connections.

An SMTP server (Simple Mail Transfer Protocol), is just like a web server. But instead of receiving and sending HTML pages, it receives and sends email.

The SMTP server (also called the Mail Transfer Agent, MTA) is responsible for receiving emails, as well as sending emails.

So in this case, PHP is set up to send emails through the SMTP server. However, that particular SMTP server address is not working.
