POP settings for Verizon Yahoo e-mail

My yahoo.verizon mail stopped coming in last week.  Changing password has now made it worse.  I'm using a Mac with newest software.

Can you still access the e-mail via the web at https://mail.yahoo.com ? Yahoo will ask for your e-mail address followed by your password. It should still work.

Outside of that, try using the following settings: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/imap-server-settings-yahoo-mail-sln4075.html

The above is for an IMAP account, which is the recommended way of syncing e-mail if you are using e-mail from more than one mail client, like a cell phone or a tablet in addition to your computer. If you need POP3 support out of preference, then use this: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/pop-access-settings-instructions-yahoo-mail-sln4724.html

It also happened on my iphone and ipad so the issue has to be something changed on your end.

No Verizon yahoo uses different server addresses.   outgoing.yahoo.verizon.net and incoming.yahoo.verizon.net  Something had to change on their end because it seemed to happen to a lot of us who were conned into switching are email to Verizon's newest and best at the time.  Now neither yahoo or Verizon want to deal with it.   I've even had verizon tech support tell me once there was no such thing.

Did yours start around the 16th?  Right about the time verizon shut down most of their support because of Covid.  Some one had to hit the wrong light switch when they left the building.

You know what really stinks.  I don't know if someone replies to this thread because I get notified at the email account that stopped working.
