That error indicates an invalid address in the "Reply To" field. See Microsoft article 208814.
In OE, click Tools, Accounts, highlight your account and click Properties. Confirm the email addresses you've entered, especially in the "Reply To" field.

Have you ever been successful in sending/receiving email in OE with these accounts? If so, what might have happened between then and now?
Do you know which account is generating the error? Yahoo or GMail? I'm not familiar with setting up Yahoo through OE, but I do have a GMail account. I had some issues with the incoming and outgoing server names.

Let's try this:
Open OE, click Tools, Accounts. Do you see both accounts listed there?
If so, I want you to remove both accounts and start over, one at a time. So you'll need to have your account settings handy before proceeding.
Delete both accounts.
Click Add => Mail Account.
Set up one account only - you choose which.
Once you have the account set up, try a send/receive. You can send a test email to your other account. Did the send/receive finish without errors?
If so, set up the other account. Try a send/receive again. Did it finish without errors?
