Hi @Randall77,


AT&T and Yahoo are making your email more secure. The new security implementation, also known as Open Authentication(OAuth), works by encrypting your credentials to better protect them from hackers. During this change, you may have trouble logging into some email applications. Not to worry, there is a solution.

Thank you for reaching out to AT&T's Community and Forums Team.
