I send mail via my mail hosting provider's MTA to ensure HELO matches.

This is my ~/.reportbugrc, rewritten to use your address and the Yahoo SMTP server. You can also try port 465 if this does not work:

mode standard
ui gtk2
email "bwtnguy@xxxxxxxxx"
realname "bw"
header "X-Debbugs-CC: bwtnguy@xxxxxxxxx"
smtphost "smtp.mail.yahoo.com:587"
smtpuser "bwtnguy@xxxxxxxxx"

For more information on these options:

less /etc/reportbug.conf
man reportbug.conf
