    My Yahoomail stopped working in Hub yesterday. I got an error saying that the password needs to updated or the settings need to be updated. The password is correct, I verified I can access my Yahoomail on a PC. I tried removing my Yahoo account from BlackBerry Hub and re-adding it but I still get the same error. Any idea what is going on?

    Remove and add back the account using the app-specific password.

    It works. Everyone else has been doing this the last few weeks.

    I started having this same problem. Tried what you said and it's still not accepting the generated password for the account I have now removed and can't add back in.

    I’ve had issues with AOL/Yahoo email simple and complex both. Unfortunately, the eventual solution was to use their proprietary apps.

    What I was dreading to hear. Thank you, though.

    For what it's worth, it seems other people have been having the same problem:

    Man that's great. For the generated app password did you use "Other" ?

    Update (for what it's worth): I have removed the remaining Yahoo account (there were 2 total), changed my main Yahoo password, cleared cache/data from Hub app, restarted my phone, created a new app password from Yahoo, and still only my one Yahoo account can be added back. The second one that got disconnected can not be added back, even with a new generated app password. So I guess only one Yahoo account can be used at a time for now unless someone can prove me otherwise?

    For now, I'm using the Yahoo mail app. After not using it so long I can see so many updated quality-of-life changes I wish can no be ported to the Hub in future updates, perhaps.

    Final update: I got it to work on both accounts. Turns out I needed to generate the password separately in each Yahoo mail account (by signing in individually to each account) rather than generating the app password in one account and trying to make it work for both.

    Lol thank you. I'll miss the Yahoo app...in a way.

    No problem. Sometimes you have to get lost in the woods after receiving directions.
