As what the error said, "One or more parameters are not valid". Mostly, this error comes up if the recipient field is incorrect. You have to make sure that the email address you have saved in your contacts is correct. You might have imported or loaded your contacts from a Microsoft exchange server and that there are missing parameters.

You can replace the email address in your contacts by opening it, right click and open in a new window. Try to add exactly the same email address. Delete the old email address and save the new one. Then in the To: field, add the new contact and send the message.

I guess the parameters that is included in the error message means the recipient's email address. Please check if you have typed it correctly or there is no issues with it.

This issue might be because of incorrect email address. I think when sending emails through Outlook, the email address are usually hidden and you can only see the name of the recipient, try typing the email address instead of selecting the name from the list and see if it will work. 

Or you may have a Yahoo account that is not configured correctly in your Outlook.
