[mail] can no longer send mail from yahoo account via smtp

I'm on hrev48340 gcc2hybrid.

It seems that I can no longer send emails from my yahoo account via smtp protocol in haiku. I get an error message that authentication failed:

It used to work about one year ago with haiku alpha 4. However, it is not a regression in haiku since I can also no longer send mails from my alpha 4 installation. It seems that yahoo changed something in their authentication procedure. The strange thing is that I can still send from other mail applications in other operating systems without changing account settings. My outgoing settings in mail preferences:

You do not happen to have Yahoo's 2 factor verification enabled do you?

That would mean you would need to generate an unique app password for Mail to work.

Replying to richienyhus:

You do not happen to have Yahoo's 2 factor verification enabled do you?

No, it's not enabled. I've never explicitly enabled it, and I just had a look at the settings a few minutes ago to make sure that it wasn't automatically enabled by yahoo either.

I can confirm this problem. Receiving mails works. Sending mails with my yahoo pop mail account is not possible. Have tried different settings without success. This mail account did work in the past with Haiku.

I noticed a problem when testing my mail account (it still does not work) on hrev49872: Haiku fills in the servers with the ending .de. Yahoo has changed this to .com also for the german accounts.

The current servers for a german pop mail account are (I have tested them successfully in Beam):

Eingehender E-Mail (POP) Server - Benötigt SSL

Server: Port: 995 Benötigt SSL: Ja Ausgehender E-Mail (SMTP) Server - Benötigt TLS

Server: Port: 465 oder 587 Benötigt SSL: Ja Erfordert Authentifizierung: Ja Wenn Ihr POP-Client kein TLS anbietet, können Sie dennoch SSL verwenden.

hrev50675 x86_gcc2 This is still an issue with the current Haiku builds. I am able to receive emails from my Yahoo account, but cannot send due to failure to authenticate.

ESMTP was broken; it was fixed in hrev52498.
