    Yahoo Email and Windows 10 Mail app missing a feature


    I have my Yahoo account enabled in the Windows 10 email app. I also have several others from Gmail, Outlook.com, Mail.com and Comcast. When I right-click on any email in the message list for the other accounts I get the option to either "Mark as junk" or "Move to junk", depending on which account I'm looking at. However, if I do the same thing in the Yahoo account, I get no such option in the right-click menu. Anyone have any idea why that is? I can drag and drop the message from the Inbox to the "Bulk Mail" folder in the left pane though.

    :)

  2. YAHOO MAIL and email apps


    Hi clayto

    Yahoo has been going through some changes as Verizon lays its hands around the product. You get messages if you try to access the web view on the old IE with a desire to push you to a new browser.

    I recognize you are using app I only mention as it relates to things happening at Yahoo.

    Any chance you have two step verification on for Yahoo in which case you need an app password to access.

    Just for my clarification, you are trying to access your Yahoo mail account through your Windows 10 mail app, correct?

    You might also see if any Credentials are being stored in the Windows Credential Manager for Yahoo. (Click start, type Credential Manager)

    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.

    YAHOO MAIL and email apps


    I think you would be better off on the BT forums as it is specifically an ISP provided Mail Account. BT changed some users from using BT Yahoo Mail a while back to BT Mail for which I think Gmail is the supplier.

    So this is a BT Yahoo Mail, or BT Mail, problem whatever it is for you. That you will have to find out.

    Welcome to BT’s official support community.

    I have a couple of Yahoo Mail Accounts on the Windows 10 Mail App works fine, but they are not BT Yahoo Mail accounts.
