Heads up - Yahoo Email changes coming in October.

Post by lbw2112 »

Thought I'd give a heads up to remind anyone who's gotten the emails from Yahoo and put them off or hasn't yet done anything yet and uses a less secure connection to link to Yahoo in EPIM.
They make it easy to change over to a more secure method like Application Password, etc.. I didn't include the links since it's not a good idea to follow them from a post. It's best to just sign in to your account there or open up one of the emails from Yahoo, the links in it guide you all the way.

Hi Yahoo Member,
We love that you love using your Yahoo Mail. And we want to make sure you always have the best experience. That’s why we’re reaching out today.

We’ve noticed that you’re using non-Yahoo applications (such as third-party email, calendar, or contact applications) that may use a less secure sign-in method. To protect you and your data, Yahoo will no longer support the current sign-in functionality in your application starting on October 20, 2020. This means that you will need to take one of the steps below to continue using Yahoo Mail without interruption.
