How does it work?
In order for us to connect to your Yahoo / AOL email account, you must generate an app password. View how to generate app passwords on Yahoo here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/generate-manage-third-party-passwords-sln15241.html
What happens if the Yahoo generated app password is not available?
Some reasons as to why the APP password may not be available include:
- Inputting the wrong app password,
- The app password has been revoked or deleted
- The third-party service itself is having issues

What if I am unable to generate app passwords at all?
For some Yahoo users, the app password feature appears to be "unavailable". You may see a message saying "this feature isn't available right now".
If that's the case, unfortunately there's not much that we can do as it is on Yahoo's side to re-enable this feature.
We suggest that you contact Yahoo directly and report the issue.
