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.

Please follow this support article, the relevant link is near the end:
https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN27791.html


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

We have OAUTH2 for Yahoo “done and ready to go” and it will be included in the next update.

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).
