See http://www.sendmail.org/tips/relaying.html but be aware that even
though Yahoo's rejection said they were rejecting you because you were
an open relay, You may well not be. Yahoo may not like your IP for
other reasons such as it is a 'home use' rather than commercial IP or
it is a private network address.

You can test your IP at sites such as http://www.abuse.net/relay.html
and http://www.ordb.org/submit/
