Hila Sweet 29-01-2017 22:26

the SMTP port should be 465. No need for manual setup. If you use GMail to check the account..Gmail will authenticate to Yahoo without the need for manual setup just be sure to remove the android prefix from the IMAP and SMTP server settings (android.smtp and android.imap) If you use Android email app....authentication is automatic as need to manual setup.

Raymond Day 30-01-2017 02:13

email on android not being setup after changing password. Receive message "authentication failed"

Muhammad Zahoor 21-01-2017 16:59

My email password is not accepted anymore since I had downloaded the yahoo mail app. I was getting 2 emails from same address but one account keeps prompting me to enter my password and won't load my mail from the day I downloaded yahoo app. I removed my email account and now when I try to add it back it won't accept my password to manually add it. Also it won't prompt me to a page to log in differently or offer to let me change my password. I want the new yahoo mail on my home page but not the app which I removed. I appreciate any help. Thank you.

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.
