Yahoo Mail and Sky Yahoo Mail have different app password generators. I'm not aware of a limit on Sky Yahoo Mail app passwords?

Re: Sky Yahoo password generator

Hi, I am in the same boat.    My e-mail - Thunderbird - has been asking for a new password for the last few days and having gone onto Sky to generate one each time, I now seem to have reached the limit allowed by Sky / Yahoo.   Cannot find a solution online, either at Sky nor Yahoo.   Yahoo, however seems to have a link for re-setting but this keeps on going back to the Sky page telling me I have reached the limit.   Any ideas anyone?

It used to be possible to rescind previous app passwords, but Sky have changed the layout of the "My Details" page and it doesn't seem possible to get to the setting anymore.

However, as you are using Thunderbird, you don't need to use generated passwords as it is OAuth compatible.

Thanks Jayach.   Just tried altering the server settings in Thunderbird for the Authentication Method - from the "Normal Password" to "OAuth2"  - and I have a pop-up saying that the "selected authentication method" is not supported.   

"OAuth" is not available on the drop-down menu.   Available ones are Normal password, Encrypted password, Kerberos / GSSAPI, NTLM, TLS and OAuth2.

OAuth2 is the correct setting, however it needs to use the Yahoo servers and not the Sky ones.

So imap.mail.yahoo.com and smtp.mail.yahoo.com.

Here's a screenshot I took a while ago.

Thanks a million Jayach

 

Up and running again now I have changed the details to the Yahoo ones and the OAuth2 basis.

I hadn't realised you were using Thunderbird or I would have replied earlier.
