Good morning:
Can anyone tell me what are the settings for a Yahoo account? I've tried 
everything, including the third party password, and I can't get it to work. 
 

Thanks.

Have you used the settings from [0]? If so, do the settings work with
other mail clients?

LGTM. should work I think.

just run it using `aerc > aerc.log` and check the log for errors.

Would you mind sending me your log so I can take a look? I cannot tell
you that this will help, but it certainly sounds like you have issues
authenticating.

Here is what I see in your log:

- your IMAP login is successful
- your Mailboxes are retrieved successfully

After some further research this seems to be a Yahoo Mail issue [0][1]
and there even are some mentions of solving this issue by logging in and
out [2] and it seems according to [3] that:

> Edit Tools -> Account Settings -> Yahoo -> Server settings -> Username
> to delete the domain name (@yahoo.com.xx....) from the email address.
> Yahoo wants just the portion of the email address to the left of the
> '@' as the username.
>
> The problem can also occur if you don't enable "allow insecure apps" in
> the yahoo webmail settings. 
I am not too sure if this refers to Thunderbird, but it would be my best
guess. So try removing the @yahoo.es from your Login name.

Hope this helps.
