I am having the same issues. I can get my emails using the yahoo app on my phone and logging in using my web browser but not using any other apps (I use Windows Live Mail and tried another web based app but no luck with either of those). I emailed yahoo and got the response that you see below, but still no luck.
Thank you for contacting Yahoo Customer Care.
I understand that you need assistance with sending and receiving emails. I really apologize for the inconvenience this caused you. Nothing to worry about, I'll do my best to help.
If you get an error or are suddenly unable to send or receive email with Yahoo Mail in a third-party app that used to work, then there's probably an issue with your account.
If you're able to sign in without issue, send yourself an email from the web interface.
I had the same issue and found this.
I logged on to yahoo using verizon.net email. Then I selected my account info, Undere account security, selected manage app passwords, selected the app. and a password was generated. Used that password for the yahoo POP settings.
I cannot send/receive verizon email anymore on my iPhone or iPad but I can on laptop. I had been able to send/receive it for years but a few months ago it stopped working. I get no where with Verizon because they turned it over to aol and yahoo....my account was always set up through yahoo (incoming.yahoo.verizon.net) but it no longer works and no one seems to have an answer. I've gone round and round with Yahoo and get nowhere. HELP!
Install the Yahoo Mail app on your iPhone and iPad, and you will be able to access your Verizon Yahoo mail without any problems.
However, if you prefer to use Apple's iPhone/iPad default mail app, then use these settings:
And you MUST get an APP PASSWORD from Yahoo:
