Happy Days are now here!!  ATT is now requiring the use of OAUTH on email devices. Sadly the BB device and many others including all but Microsoft 2019 do not use it to log into the Yahoo servers. So either use a browser to log in or buy another app. If you have multiple email addresses, you will now need to open and close browser to check each. Real nice. the reason stated is for additional security. Something makes me think it is to further monitor us and send more junk emails.

Maybe someone from ATT can reply and dare to offer information on how to use older apps or offer a list for free ones that will work .
