Common Yahoo Authentication Issues

Yahoo users may have trouble authenticating with Nylas using their normal username and password. If they do, we recommend using an app password for authentication.

To generate an app password:

  1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.
  2. Navigate to "Account Info".
  3. Go to the "Account security" settings.
  4. At the bottom of the page, choose the option to "Generate app password" or "Manage app passwords".
  5. Generate a new app password.
  6. Try authenticating again with Nylas, using the newly-generated password.

This approach is also appropriate for users who have two-factor authentication enabled.

For more details, see Generate third-party app passwords in Yahoo Help.
