Thanks for the link! I already changed my Yahoo profile to use Oath2 for authentication and everything seems to be working fine. I haven't made the cookie change yet.

Peace...

You're most welcome! If it's working for you, I wonder if should go back a change cookies to deny??

Is accepting cookies absolutely required? Sounds like no per another post.

"Is accepting cookies absolutely required? Sounds like no per another post."

Cookies (for the appropriate web site) are required for OAuth2. Its been that way since OAuth2 support was added for Gmail IMAP accounts.

That's what I thought, but I just checked and the "Accept Cookies" box is not checked on my v60 installation, whereas I successfully reinstalled Yahoo (and AOL) email with OAuth2 several weeks ago and all is well 2 days and counting after the drop-dead date :?

Thanks for the link. Following the instructions there I had to enable OAuth2 for the Set outgoing server (SMTP) 'Authentication Method' to 'Oauth2 instruction even though I had previously used 'Option 2' a few days ago. So seems that Yahoo's Option 2 still left the outgoing server SMTP at being set to 'Normal Password'. Hoo, Hum. . . I did have some problem this morning with the Yahoo account in that I couldn't empty the Deleted folder. In any case, seems working fine now after I made the above change.

I note from the Thunderbird Release Notes for v78.4.0 under the section titled CHANGES it says, "Yahoo and AOL mail users using password authentication will be migrated to OAuth2". So, by my reading, it would seem that Thunderbird has moved the change to an automatic 'in-house' (Thunderbird) adjustment to Yahoo accounts when people update to 78.4.0. (I haven't updated to that version myself as yet on account of using Thunderbird Portable (PortableApps) and that version, though already built, will be a couple more days to general release for portable users.)

You're quite welcome. I was having problems sending Yahoo email until I read on that link that I had to change the outbound server settings. I did that and it worked haven't tried today so I hope that holds true.
