Apple two-factor authentication
« on: May 18, 2017, 03:58:25 am »
I've just heard from Apple that they will enforce two-factor authentication from June 15, and all non-Apple apps that use iCloud must have an app-specific password.
Last time I tried two-factor authentication I had problems connecting with Aquamail and reverted to single-factor.
I know how to set up an app-specific password, but before I set it up, I'd just like to check that Aquamail is set up for it. I presume it is, but just checking.

An app specific password doesn't need anything on our side (or at least it hasn't for any other mail provider).

( now if Apple supported OAUTH2 we could add support for that, so you could log in through Apple's web site... but it appears that they don't... )
