  1. On 7/15 there was an update on yahoo mail and since I’ve been unable to access my email on outlook 2010 and 2013 (on 2 different computers) since. I’ve tried to reset up the account on 2013 completely from scratch, no luck. Re did account completely on 2010, same result. get message #MBR1212 – Incorrect user or password.
    Went to Yahoo mail on web, re-logged in went smooth.
    Email works on cell phone with user and password.

    Not smart enough to figure this out. HELP

    • IMAP is the best way to connect your Yahoo Mail account to a desktop mail client or mobile app. It allows 2-way syncing, which means everything you do remotely is reflected in your Yahoo Mail account no matter where or how you access it. Here are the settings you’ll need to configure your mail client or app.

      Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server

      Server – imap.mail.yahoo.com
      Port – 993
      Requires SSL – Yes

      Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server

      Server – smtp.mail.yahoo.com
      Port – 465 or 587
      Requires SSL – Yes
      Requires authentication – Yes

      Your login info

      Email address – Your full email address ([email protected])
      Password – Your account’s password
      Requires authentication – Yes

  2. Can someone from Yahoo reach me please? I can’t get in to either of my emails and the only way to change the password is to get in to those emails!! This is pissing me off! Why is there no phone number for stuff like this?’

    • Hello there! If you’ve updated and verified your mobile number to Yahoo Mail account before, then you can have access to reset Yahoo password using phone number. If yes, click on ‘I don’t have access to this email’ link on Yahoo sign in Helper page. Enter two missing digits of your mobile number and follow the instructions.

  3. Been logging into my email just about every day. Now yesterday, I go to log back in after checking my email earlier in the day just to get some bs message saying there’s been suspicious activity on my account and to verify who I am. I put my username and password in again and it says it wants to send a code to my old yahoo email address. This is an old email address that I no longer have access to because of the ridiculous nonsense yahoo is always pulling. I hit the alternative verification and it loops me back to sending the code back to the old email address. I didn’t put a phone number for recovery because my phone was broke at the time. Now no way of recovering my important emails. It’s ridiculous to ask a person to have two email addresses just to set up one in case Yahoo screws up again. The HELP section should be renamed “Don’t bother because you’re just going to get jerked around, waste valuable time and still not be able to get into your email. No wonder so many people are getting away from yahoo mail and going with something else.

  4. I would appreciate it if someone could inform me how to use my Yahoo mail account without signing up for the increased security being offered.
    I have been using Yahoo mail for over 15 years and have been completely satisfied with it… except when enforced changes have been mandated. I do not wish to utilize the new security options which have been offered at each mail sign in for the last months. Today it seems that I am unable to use Yahoo mail unless I agree to these new security options, which include changing passwords. I will change to another e-mail provider before I will use these new options. I feel these are needless, useless changes that benefit no one but the providers and developers of these garbage changes. I wonder how much business you will lose because of these needless changes; or perhaps most people have bowed down to this recent trend dictating customers sign up for useless problematic system changes for corporate benefit.

    • Hello Stephen Steel
      Millions of Yahoo users has been hacked and passwords are compromised. So Yahoo is forcing you to change the password or take other security measures. Your account may be at risk, that’s why they have asked you to change password. If you still want to login with same password then when Yahoo mail ask you to change password, open new tab in same browser and open mail.yahoo.com. You will reach into Yahoo inbox

  5. I can’t remember my yahoo mail password, but everytime I try to enter the verification code I get this message. Can someone help me please? “Uh oh, looks like something went wrong. Please try again later.”

  6. I’m in need of some serious help I have tried several times to log in to my account and I can’t due to it asks for a old phone number and phone that I don’t have any more can someone please help me
