Yahoo android app

It seems.that my yahoo email android app no longer works with my bt yahoo email address, after 20 years this is a problem.

Can someone confirm that the yahoo app still works with the bt yahoo email and if it doesn't is there a solution or fix?

Re: Yahoo android app

The yahoo app no longer works with BTYahoo, you need to use another app. I find Blue Mail satisfactory, there are many others to choose from. Don't use Yahoo server settings, use the correct BT ones.

The app does still work but it's a real pain to log in. I get the same message when trying to login as I do through a web browser

"If you’re using an internet browser (like Internet Explorer or Google Chrome)
You may be using an old link, to view your email please go to https://www.bt.com/email


Setting up your email?
It looks like you might have selected ‘Yahoo’ when setting up your email, please select ‘Other’ and then enter your email address and password.


Using the Yahoo mail mobile app?
Sorry, we don’t support new setups via the app anymore."

Then it seems I get to a "BT version" of the app which renders differently. Changed a couple of months ago and its rubbish so I need another email client I think

Hi, welcome to the forums.

There is no BT app for email.

With regard a different app, try BlueMail. When adding the account, use Other as the choice, and although Automatic does work - it's worth unticking that before continuing to add the account manually. Settings to use :-

Thanks for that. I'm also curious what's happening with disposable email addresses - I've read a few things but still not sure what is happening and (particularly) when

Re: Yahoo android app

The disposable email address facility has been removed from the BTMail system and is in the process of being removed from those who have a BTYahoo email account.

If you do have disposable email addresses you will lose them so I would suggest that you move them over to some other email address as soon as possible.
