  • If your Yahoo password is not working, it may be due to new security requirements Yahoo has placed on apps connecting. You can enable apps to connect via IMAP by changing a setting in your Yahoo account.

    Just follow these instructions from Yahoo on how to set it up.

    Or click here to go straight to the security settings and turn on this switch shown below.

    Speaking Email uses IMAP to connect to Yahoo, which is the industy standard. IMAP has a secure mode, which Speaking Email uses, meaning all data including your password is encrypted over the network.
