Authentication fail with iCloud again
« on: February 02, 2017, 04:15:09 am »
There had been no problem logging into iCloud since I cancelled two-factor authentication last year. I could log in to my iCloud account email with no problem up until last night.
But this morning, I got the NO: Authentication failed message again. When I tried to re-input the login data, I again got the same message.
I am not able to see any reason for this. I had changed nothing.
I expect you'll say this is a fault on Apple's side, but if they have changed something, I have not heard about it.
Anybody else with the same problem?

FWIW, it just so happens that I added my icloud account into Aqua Mail a few minutes ago (I used to have an iPhone...) and it worked.

But then I never had two factor enabled.

I can only tell you that Aqua Mail sends the password exactly as entered.
