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.

Dinlle 31-10-2016 10:04


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.
