    For those still struggling:
    for Yahoo: follow what Bethany444 above said. go into your yahoo settings (logged into a PC, not a mobile) then scroll down to turn "on" the option to allow less secure apps to sign in.

    for Hotmail: by default the exchange server setting is set to "m.hotmail.com" change it to "m.outlook.com" and it should work. at least it did for me. follow cykodelik's advice above for that one.

    Best of luck!

    hello , Just looking for an answer having the same problem like you I got crazy and stressed but after so many answers with no result I finally resolve the problem to the headache problem, and I know so may like you and me are having hard time to sign into yahoo mail just follow the steps and let me know if its work for you too.

    1- sign in to your yahoo mail, go up to right where your name is show click account info
    2- click account security, & turn off Allow apps that use less secure sign in
    3- Click manage Apps Passwords
    4- select your App, click generate
    5- go to your device to add the mail as you used to do it but instead of writing your email password just write the one that is been generate on the computer and write it as is don't care about if it's said that about spaces just continue and click next and follow the steps for sync.
    the rest is story
    I have been at this all day, absolutely furious and then came you. Thank u so much. Finally something that allowed me to restore my yahoo mail. Ugh, again, THANK U SO MUCH!!!

    So i finally have a day off ... yay! It sucks so far because after deciding to try to set my yahoo mail up on my note 3 neo and failing, several times. I now cant access the internet, which means i have to be stuck at home all day. Wifi is on and connected. I can even open the login page for the router. And the dsl connecton is clearly fine because i am posting this to you folks there quite happily.
    I tried battery in, battery out. Checked time and date are correct. It must be some stupid samsung email setup account thing i guess.
    Please help

    Well weird. I gave up, put phone on to charge and went to surf for pc specs after posting the above. I've just come back, turned wifi on and .... got a whatsapp message. Most strange. Anyway, all good, even if I haven't a clue why!

    I'm having the same problem on my Galaxy S6. I had my icloud email set up and working fine for over a year, and now it is saying authentication failed. I've changed my pw and it will not work on my Galaxy or my Microsoft Exchange program, but it will work if I log in to icloud.com and log in. I've tried to set it up manually and auto, and neither will work. Please help!

    I was having trouble with Hotmail not syncing on my Galaxy S7's email program. It had been working fine until the latest software update. It took two day to solve the problem.

    To fix the problem I changed the Exchange server setting
    from: m.hotmail.com
    to: eas.outlook.com/Microsoft-Server-ActiveSync
    and it worked right away. Not sure why or how it got changed to begin with but it's working now.
    Hope this helps someone.

    For Yahoo email on stock Android email app, Yahoo feels the stock app is not secure and they require you to generate a special app password. First log in to your Yahoo account from an internet browser, go into Account Security, then Manage App Passwords, select Android Mail (or whatever phone you use), Generate Password. Then use this password to set up the Yahoo in the phone app.

    Or download the Yahoo Mail app and use that.

    Many thanks Crashdamage for the tip to try Aquamail.I have a new Honor 7X which refused to find the hotmail.co.uk server hence would deliver no mail. Aquamail found it Immediately! This is a great app. And a great device but something needs to be done by Huawei to fix this problem.
