Your advice was no use.!! Cannot set up my Yahoo mail on Vodafone Android Sony Xperia Z5 Compact. It was working OK but no longer.This problem started after I chose the Yahoo option not to allow 3rd party sign ins. Everyday (after their security problems) it pestered me to switch off 3rd party sign in access, until I said Yes. But now Yahoo does not offer me an option to revert back! Now I can no longer sign in to my Yahoo email on my phone. Including I tried deleting the Yahoo email account off my phone but still I cannot sign in to set it up again as a NEW email account on my phone.!! Followed all your advice / settings. No use.
