Unable to connect to Yahoo IMAP server


Recommended Posts

Problem:
I am unable to connect to the Yahoo IMAP server to index the contents of a Yahoo mailbox.

Explenation:
Yahoo has recently implemented the App Password which is required to connect a third-party application to the Yahoo mailbox.
Unfortunately, as per Yahoo's official Reddit group and their Support portal, this feature is no longer working.
The only way to connect to a Yahoo mailbox is through the official Yahoo Mail App and the web browser. 

Due to this, Intella is no longer able to connect to a Yahoo mailbox to index it's contents.

Workaround:
Yahoo Mail App and website allow to create a PST file and export the mailbox contents into it. You can then ingest the PST file using Intella.
Please refer to Yahoo Knowledge Base for information on how to create a PST file through the browser app and the Yahoo Mail App.
