Q: How do I sign in with Yahoo Mail?
A: You can now use your regular Yahoo password with Speaking Email. We have been approved by Yahoo to provide direct Yahoo Sign In. This means we don't see your password, but only an encrypted token given by Yahoo servers, which makes this connection very secure.
This also works for mail providers that use Yahoo, such as Verizon, AT&T, and Xtra.
You no longer need to set up the "app password" on the Yahoo website, which was the previous method of connecting (which Yahoo has discontinued).
Speaking Email uses IMAP to connect to Yahoo, which is the industry standard. IMAP has a secure mode, which Speaking Email uses, meaning all data including your security token is encrypted over the network.
