in reply to sending e-mail using perl script

While you could interface with Outlook, that's an unnecessary step, and adds complexity to the program. And you know how it goes with complex things: when they break, it's a pain to fix. See KISS.

Instead, consider using something like Net::SMTP, and filling in the values Yahoo has given you for the server connection and authentication. Trust me, you will probably save yourself a big headache if you avoid Outlook.
But it is your choice, and if you must, then so be it. Good luck with that, I know very little about Micro-Soft's many APIs, I'm afraid.
