    MS Mail stopped connecting to Yahoo email, error code: 0x8019019a, Fix Account won't work


    Hi all, I am running Win10 Pro, ver 10.0.19042 Build 19042 and had MS Mail app connected to my Outlook, MSN, Hotmail, Gmail, and Yahoo mail successfully for years. The apps are kept up to date via the Microsoft Store app and last week everything worked well. I shutdown the PC over the weekend when I went out of town and starting it up Monday evening I received the "Your Yahoo account settings are out-of-date" message. Over the past 4 years all 5 accounts were working and syncing fine. The only account that didn't work well was iCloud and I just deleted it from MS Mail.


    I clicked the Fix Account link, entered my Yahoo email address, got the 6 letter code, entered it and received the Error message box with error code: 0x8019019a.


    Looking through the forum posts I found solutions of older Windows versions. I found 1 solution to uninstall the MS Mail and Calendar app and reinstall it. I tried this and got the same results, out of date settings message, enter the code to fix, error code: 0x8019019a. When I opened the MS Mail and Calendar app I was expecting to load everything back into it but the Yahoo mailbox, folders, and account all were still there, still with an out of date error and I could not fix through the Fix Account process.

    Looking through the error logs I am seeing some odd codes, mostly the time/date stamps are way off due to the PC being off from Friday afternoon to Monday night yet there are 4 errors listed during that timeline. None of the errors were related to the MS Mail but svchost, CTSyncU connectivity Date and time settings are accurate now, I didn't change anything. I am not sure what could have changed when I last received email on Friday and Monday when I received the out of date error message for the account.

    :)

    yahoo error code 0x8019019a when updating my account

    Hi there!

    I'm Louie, a Microsoft Community member and a fellow Windows 10 user like you. Hope you're doing well and safe there.

    I suggest you to try this steps and see if it works:

    Step 1:

    1. Open the Mail app.

    2. Click on Settings.

    3. Select Manage accounts.

    4. Click on your Yahoo account.

    5. Choose Remove this account from this device.

    Step 2:

    1. Open any web browser (Google Chrome, Firefox, or any other that you regularly use)

    2. Sign in into Yahoo mail with your ID and password.

    3. On the top-right corner click on your name and choose Account info.

    4. In the next section, you need to select Account security.

    5. You’ll now have a new tab; towards the bottom of the page, click on “Manage app passwords”. click the same

    6. When a dropdown menu appears, you need to choose Other app.

    7. Click on “Generate“. Now, Yahoo mail will produce a 16 character password for your account. Copy the same.

    8. Now, reopen the Windows Mail app to fix code 0x8019019a.

    9. Go to Settings and then Manage accounts as you have done in the starting.

    10. Click +Add account.

    11. Note that this time, don’t choose the Yahoo option. Instead of that, select Other account (POP, IMAP).

    12. Type in your Yahoo email address

    13. When it asks for the password, paste in the 16 Char password you just copies from Yahoo.

    14. Type your Name and select Save.

    Adding the Yahoo account this way did work for several people without getting Mail App Error code 0x8019019a in Windows 10.

    Hope this helps.

    Sincerely,

    Louie

    Now similar steps to setting up Gmail. Here I'll only go through the Gmail steps as Windows Mail App setup is the exact same.

    Follow this jpeg below, all steps are merged as there's a 5 attachment limit.

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

    Yes, once 2-factor authentication is enabled you should then create the app specific password & enter it instead of the account password.
