BT Yahoo! Webmail login works but IMAP/POP/SMTP says incorrcet password

For the second time in 2 days retreival of mail via POP (win 10) and IMAP (Iphone) is failing. I can log in to myBT and/or directly into yahoo using these credentails so there is an inconsistency between the services. Yesterday I fixed the issue by going via the mail password reset function but resetting the pasword to the same as it was before.

 

What is going on ?

I have the same issue. On the web I can access emails.

 

On my mac I can send mail but get a password error on trying to recieve. Has been like this since 20th July. 

 

And it was simply a case of working one day then not!

 

All login details are correct.

This is exactly the problem I am having. It appeared to have been an issue since around 20/7/17

I have the same issue. I can access emails via Webmail on my iMac but not via my email folders. This happened completely out of the blue last Tuesday/Wednesday, 25/26 July. No settings have been altered.

The problem seems to be the connection to Yahoo/IMAP. Webmail is not as convenient.

BT says it is aware of the problem, its servers are currently down and the problem should be fixed by 8pm this evening. I am not holding my breath.

My broadband contract is expired this month and given that the internet has been dropping out frequently in recent months coupled with this latest issue means that I will be looking elsewhere for my IT connectivity. very poor service

Same here and even though this is posted lots elsewhere on the www and apple forums I am surprised it is not highlighted on here as it does seem to be a btyahoo problem.

I am having similar problems on my pc, windows 7, outlook 2007. Sometimes it will work OK, then later in the day it keeps comingup with the enter password screen. This is a problem that I have previously but not for some time.

Unfortunately the BT help desk are no help at all in this situation as all they care about is if you can log on via webmail.
