Yahoo blocking “less secure” mail apps

What Yahoo calls “less secure” is just the good old fashioned “password based” login – where a mail app sends your password to Yahoo’s servers, over an encrypted network connection.

This is how it’s worked for years and years, with pretty much all mail providers.

Now, the new tech, called OAUTH2, is more secure (it doesn’t need to send the passwords to the mail servers at all), but it doesn’t mean that passwords are suddently not secure.

And this is the cherry on top:

Even though Yahoo started enforcing OAUTH2 –

– they still have not provided a way to make mail apps support their requirements.

There are numerous messages on their developer support forums, even from someone at Samsung it seems – and no response whatsoever.

And therefore, for now, the only way to use Yahoo mail with any third party app, is to re-enable “access from less secure apps”.

( the only exceptions seem to be the Gmail app and the Outlook app, well, they probably knew who to call )

Please follow this support article, the relevant link is near the end:

PS: AquaMail already supports OAUTH2 for GMail, Hotmail and Yandex.

These companies have provided the relevant technical info on making it work. Yahoo, however, does not seem capable or willing.

App not fetching all recent messages from Hotmail?

Symptoms: a Hotmail account shows a few very recent messages, and then there is a large “gap” to 2013 or something.

A known issue that seems to come up pretty often in @hotmail / @outlook accounts.

I guess it’s their ongoing “migration to new servers” (they’ve been moving all accounts to “new servers” since a few months, gradually).

Please try this:

– Long press on the account (on the app’s main screen) -> options and folders -> account options.

– Change the “messages to sync” setting from a number based value (“25
messages” etc.) to a date range based value (“last 7 days”, etc.)

– Back out and refresh the account

The FAQ has screenshots of the setting, if you search it for “Hotmail”.

Oh and if you don’t make any changes, then any messages received since the “migration” should be fetched and sorted correctly, at the top of the message list, so that may be a viable option too (and certainly easiest, not doing anything at all).


Обновление видно для всех пользователей и со всех устройств.

+ Авторизация OAUTH2 для Яндекса. Чтобы включить в существующей учётной записи, проверьте в ней почту, затем длинное нажатие (на учётной записи) – основные настройки.

+ Исправления ошибок.

+ Исправления / изменения в коде который подсвечивает ссылки / номера телефонов / адреса почты.

+ Кроме того, эта подсветка теперь *не* выполняется внутри тегов <pre>.

+ Tasker: плагин теперь возвращает данные из всех совпавших сообщений в массивах (а не только из одного).
