SMTP Error with Yahoo

Postby abrogard » Sat Feb 24, 2018 11:00 pm

I want to connect to my yahoo account but I can't. SMTP error it says.

And I had to reset a Yahoo configuration to allow connections with 'less secure' servers. Which they warn me against doing. is that a serious thing or not to worry about?

And here's an email from Yahoo I just got:

Hi arthur,

Your account is currently not enabled to sign in from apps that do not meet modern security standards (e.g. older versions of email and calendar apps such as Outlook). As a result, we prevented a sign-in to your Yahoo account (abrogard).

Date and time: 26 February 2018 11:45:02 AM
Location: Australia (IP address: 101.167.174.244)

We strongly recommend that you switch to Yahoo's apps such as Yahoo Mail on desktop and mobile and remove your account from all other less secure apps.

If you still want to use an app that uses less secure sign-in, go to https://login.yahoo.com/account/security#other-apps and turn on ‘Allow apps that use less secure sign-in’. This is not recommended and may leave your account more vulnerable to compromise. To learn more, please visit our help page: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN27791.html.

Yahoo blocked this sign-in attempt, but if it looks suspicious to you or if it's not from an application that you're using, go to https://login.yahoo.com/account/change-password and change the password for your account.

You are receiving this notification because greenpepper@greenpepper.org is listed as a recovery email address for abrogard@yahoo.com.

Thanks,

Yahoo

So it looks like its a deliberate Yahoo thing. Can I safely amend my Yahoo account to 'allow less secure sign-in' ?


regards,

In my opinion apparently it seems that something gets wrong with your configuration.
