Yahoo email suddenly stopped allowing Apple Mail access to my email

I use apple mail for my email program and over the last few days the Yahoo email I have through my address cannot download email. the email is now only available if I go directly to the Yahoo site or I can get it on iphone. It worked intermittently on my desk top for a day or so and then completely stopped allowing my mail program access. I have quit and restarted apple mail many times and there is no problem with the password to access. 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey @tripallen,


Let us help!


We wrote a post with Email Troubleshooting steps that may help. I should note however, that the best way to access your email is through as 3rd party email clients are not officially supported.


Let us know if you have further questions!
