Apple (iCloud) accounts require using application specific passwords

Starting June 15 2017, Apple started requiring that any apps accessing Apple accounts (including mail on iCloud) – need to use “application specific passwords”.

Trying to use the account’s “master” password will result in login errors.

And so, please:

1 – Generate an “application specific password” for Aqua Mail as explained in this article on Apple’s support site.

2 – Use the generated password in Aqua Mail.

– When adding an account into Aqua Mail for the first time, please just enter the new application specific password.

– For an account already existing in Aqua Mail, please long press on it (the account) on the app’s main screen -> account setup -> update the password -> tap Next to validate and save.

MacWorld has a nice step by step guide with screenshots.
