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 ? If so, do the settings work with other mail clients? 0: https://en-global.help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN4075.html

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  and there even are some mentions of solving this issue by logging in and out  and it seems according to  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. 0: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1168153?page=2#answer-1001386 1: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1394642 2: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1172099 3: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Yahoo
