    I can't log in to yahoo mail on the app. I thought it was the new OP5, but my friend couldn't do it on the Note 5

    I read to get an App Pswd and sign in with that in the app.

    Well I enter it and get a wrong password message.

    And at no point does the app ask for it.

    I am not an expert and like the app because I am not fond of Gmail or my previous one K-9 email (Fetch)

    Can you recommend a good PUSH email app?

    Thanks for your help

    Do you have 2-step authentication turned on for your Yahoo account? If so, try turning that off temporarily.

    Yahoo does not use the normal username + password system for security on their email servers any more. If you are not using the Yahoo email app, you need to go use a web browser to go to the Yahoo website, edit your account, add a special app password for your third-party email app.

    Then in the email app, use this password as the password to your email account.

    @ManiacJoe, does this apply to Yahoo's own Yahoo Mail app? My understanding from the OP was that there was also a problem logging into the Yahoo Mail app.

    Yahoo's app taking to Yahoo's servers using the new Yahoo security model is supposed to be all good and easy.

    Yahoo seems to be slowly giving third-party access to Yahoo's new security model. Until then, the traditional user-password system is slightly broken (with a workaround) for the non-Yahoo apps.

    It was not clear to me which email app the OP is using.
