Email account will not authenticate anymore

My Yahoo account stopped syncing a few days ago. So I deleted it, and when I try to add it back in, it will not authenticate anymore. I  know my password is correct as I am currently logged into it on my laptop. How can I fix it?

Are you using the Yahoo Mail app, or the built-in mail app?

Hello CanesFan1,


We definitely want you to be able to access your emails. What happens if you try to log into your email account by going to the Yahoo website through your web browser? Are you using the Yahoo app or the stock email app? What is the specific message you get when you try to log into your account?
