    error 0x8007042b when adding a Yahoo Mail account to MS Mail App


    When using the mail app in:
    OS Name: Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    OS Version: 10.0.18362 N/A Build 18362

    I'm getting the error code:
    error 0x8007042b

    I've disabled anti-virus but that didn't work.

    What I'm trying to do is:
    • Go to the settings (the cog wheel in the app)
    • Manage accounts
    • + add account
    • and choose Yahoo
    • this gives the error: error 0x8007042b

    I've 4 other mail accounts so resetting the app I haven't tried. Any other way around this issue?

    :)

  2. Yahoo mail - alternative accounts

    Sounds promising, I have a Gmail account. How do I verify the Yahoo account using it ?

    I have sent several Gmails to john @yahoo.com, but all I get are mail failure emails back saying the account is not available. I also did this with OE a few times with the same result.

    Why `o why can`t Yahoo be more explicit in their instructions. I am no dummy, but I give in on this one.

    Yahoo account won't receive mail


    I've started using Mail app in Wndows 10 on a trial basis, on my desktop PC.

    I've added my Yahoo mail account and can send emails but cannot receive them.

    I tried using a solution offered in a post on another thread, by logging into my Yahoo account, and going to security to add a specific password for my account for apps, but cannot find any option to do this.

    The only option it offers is to use/disable less secure options.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Update: Mail started being received 30 minutes after I had sent it from another email client.

    Gripes about Mail app:


    • Emails can't be saved to desktop
    • Font defaults can't be set size and text chosen, eg Arial
