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

    I went this route and added passwords for yahoo mail. I might try this method above to get gmail to buck up! *Tongue

    @Bastet, this is probably what you were referring to the whole time.


    YAHOO MAIL FIX
    2FA needs to be enabled which it already was and just follow these steps below.

    1. In yahoo mails account security, click on manage app passwords.

    Fully functional mail app again.



    GMAIL FIX

    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.

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

    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.
