I sort of doubt it is the DSL itself.

My best WAG is this is a cookie problem, although one normally gets some sort of warning page from Yahoo about enabling cookies. Given the problem appears in both IE and Firefox, I'm wondering if you installed, at the same time you went to DSL, any separate software that would interfere with cookies or email, like anti-virus, anti-spyware or firewall software.

Try configuring your router for MTU of 1492. If you don't have a router, get one yesterday!

Same thing happened to us, using a router. One computer we could get email, send and recieve, the other one we could not. As William said change it to 1492, on ours we had to set it to 1400
