Password Problem with Yahoo

Reported by Aleksandar Sipkoski | December 16th, 2016 @ 09:39 AM

Hello from Paris France,

Got a problem with several yahoo IMAP account
An error message appear each time i try to take "my_email_adress" online
it says :

Enter password for “myemail@yahoo.fr” at “imap.mail.yahoo.com”
Server response: “H0 NO AUTHENTICATIONFAILED”. Command attempted: “••••••••••”.
Please enter password for user name “myemail@yahoo.fr”.

I write down my email there and hit "save password in keychain"
but after a while the error window appear again...

Here are the settings in Mailmate :

Description : myfullemailadresss@yahoo.fr
Full name : myfullemailadresss@yahoo.fr
Email Adress : myfullemailadresss@yahoo.fr
IMAP server : imap.mail.yahoo.com
User name : myfullemailadresss@yahoo.fr
password : •••••
Port : 993
Require SSL : ticked

SMTP server : smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Port : 465
Require SSL : ticket

On yahoo on the web :
- I have tried to change my password on the web on yahoo.com then put that new password in mailmate - in the security settings i have ticked "authorise apps using a less secure connection" it's in french sorry maybe my translation is wrong but hopefully you get what i mean there.

On my iphone
- Connection to my yahoomail from my iPhone is OK (it synchs)

I have several yahoo accounts none of them are working with mailmate :-(
Please help !
