I am running OS3.9 and using YAM as my email client. I recently got an email from Yahoo saying that my yahoo mail account needs attention. Apparently I need to generate a third party app password which I think I have done. This involved logging onto yahoo via a browser, entering my email address, and telling it to generate an app password which it did. The password consisted of four groups of 4 alpha characters with a space in between each of the four groups. I went into YAM's configuration screen and put the generated password in, saved the changed, and then tried to get my mail. This failed. I tried again by leaving out the spaces, and this also failed. I can still log into my email account via a web browser with my old original password.
Does anyone have any idea what I am doing wrong. That is, what am I supposed to do with this app password that yahoo generated for me?
As an alternative, can anyone tell me how to contact yahoo directly by either email?
