After 2 or more years, my yahoo.com email stopped coming into my Outlook 2019 on March 15th around 10 am. As a coincidence, it likewise stopped downloading into my iPhone. I thought it might be a server issue. But Wednesday evening, I went to the Yahoo webmail, and it was working just fine. All the emails from 10 am on were on the Yahoo webmail site.
This morning I went into Yahoo mail and changed the password. Then I went to my iPhone and changed the password. Rather instantly, all the emails loaded onto my iPhone! I tried the same thing in my Outlook, and I get "Something Went Wrong." We couldn't log into your IMAP incoming mail server. Check your email address and password and try again.
I tried over and over and over with the same email address and password that I used on my iPhone and the Yahoo webmail site. I repeatedly get the same message.
I've checked and rechecked the settings info from AT&T on the Yahoo setting page where they say for incoming mail server use imap.mail.yahoo.com and a port of 993. For the outgoing server, use - smtp.mail.yahoo.com and a port of 465. Both use the encryption method of SSL/TLS.
Am I doing something wrong, or is there an issue with Outlook? I've deleted the email address and tried this same ritual with Outlook in Safe Mode.
I would greatly appreciate your help because the frustration level is rising with each attempt!
