  1. Yahoo Mail Needs Fixing


    I have Windows 10 and Yahoo mail said it needed to be fixed. I followed the instructions and downloaded the Windows 10 update and I still get an error message when trying to fix the Yahoo mail account that says Something Went Wrong and Error Code 0x8019019a. Anyone else have this issue and figured out how to fix? Appreciate help.

    :)

    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.

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

    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.

    Hi Kieth,

    Regarding the issue that you had with making email replies on your Yahoo, have you tried performing a uninstalling and reinstalling the app?

    We suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Uninstall the Yahoo Mail app.
    • Perform a soft reset by Pressing the Power and Volume down button simultaneously for 15 seconds.
    • Once the phone vibrates, release your hold and wait for the phone to finish rebooting.
    • Reinstall Yahoo Mail from the store.

    Let us know if the issue persists after following the steps above.
