Yahoo mail access issue

Last updated on November 11, 2019

In case you are experiencing issue with yahoo mail when Spamdrain can not connect to your email server, you could see the following error message:

"Could not log on to the server. User name or a password is incorrect. "

The message could appear even when you are 100 % sure in correct email address and a password. In this case, please try to do the following:

- sign in to your Yahoo account ;

- go to security section ;

- click on Generate app password;

- choose other app:


- enter Spamdrain:


- generate a password:


- select Spamdrain app:


 - enter the password at Spamdrain settings if you had previously added email address or enter it during the sign up / adding email address. 

You may also need to start the filtering again since it's automatically paused when we cannot sign in for a while.
