Using Gmail to access BT Yahoo email?

Until 21 March 2017 I was able to fetch my BT Yahoo Email using Pop3 and read it using gmail on my PC albeit with occasional issues.

Since 21 March I have been unable to fetch any email from BT Yahoo via Pop3 despite attempting to obtain help from BT helpdesk. Errors Shown below.

 

It would be really helpful to hear from anyone who can assure me that Gmail can still fetch email from BT Yahoo in this way.  Alternatively, I would very much appreciate a solution that allows me to continue using my btinternet.com address and use of Gmail as the client.  

 

Assistance from any BTY staff or Moderators would be appreciated.   (This issue has been reported formally)

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes it is, as I do the same, it works fine.

 

You need to select "Check email from other accounts" not "Import mail and contacts"

Try changing your POP3 server from mail.btinternet.com to the Yahoo one:- pop.mail.yahoo.com

I have an account which I just use for testing. Just tried it and it is fetching mails but there appears to be historic error messages still showing.
