    Hello! First, please forgive me I am totally new to the Apple world and totally new to forums. I have a MacBook Pro and have avoided leaving my laptop for months, but now am ready! YAY! I am trying to set up all my emails in outlook and was able to do so with each, except Yahoo. It keeps giving me the error message:

    MAIL COULD NOT BE RECEIVED AT THIS TIME. The server for account "Yahoo" returned the error "[AUTHENTICATION FAILED] (#MBR1212) Incorrect username or password.." Your username/password or security settings may be incorrect. Would you like to try re-entering your password?

    Any insight on this would be wonderful and I'd be most grateful! I feel that it might be a setting on Yahoo's security side; however, I have no idea. I don't know if I'm even in the proper place.

    Many thanks! Elena

    I looked around and this is what the settings for pop should be

    Incoming Mail (POP) Server

    • Server - pop.mail.yahoo.com
    • Port - 995
    • Requires SSL - Yes

    Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server

    • Server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    • Port - 465 or 587
    • Requires SSL - Yes
    • Requires TLS - Yes (if available)
    • Requires authentication - Yes

    Your login info

    • Email address - Your full email address (name@domain.com.)
