Thunderbird was working just fine yesterday and retrieved my yahoo emails but today it has not been working. I didn't change any settings over night but now I have tried everything and I cannot get emails.


It says its sending my details but I then get a message asking for the password. I entered the correct password but I either get a timed out message ( Login to or it asks me to enter the password again.


Some things I have checked :

I dont have Two-step verification enabled

I have tried another computer and setting up a new account to go to Yahoo but get a Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?

I used the settings Thunderbird set up by default and also used https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN3773.html but no luck

My mobile phone (android with outlook app) works fine with yahoo and so to does the www and browser but I don't know why thunderbird isnt?
