Using evolution with yahoo.com


I have gmail.com tied to evolution. It works fine.
I would like to add yahoo.com to evolution. I can't do it because the normal web method of enrolling to Yahoo.com requires a third party validation. The old way of just providing the password does not work.

I'm not a Yahoo user but according to this page it is possible to create a password for your mail application.

I haven't used it in a quite while - the yahoo api may have changed, but fetchyahoo has worked for me in the past.

Working with yahoo.com and Linux is the "pits". Yahoo has oriented itself to the cellphone, and is designed to work with cellphones.

With Linux, you log to yahoo.com, it will send a code to your cell. You can instruct it to email a code to a second email address that is on file. If you don't have a cell or a second email address, you are out of luck.

After using the cell or email to actually log into yahoo.com, through your settings somewhere, you can ask that password management revert to the old way. Then you create your own password. It is this password that you can use with evolution or with Thunderbird or other IMAP software.

^ i do not use ANY email provider that cannot be used with an email client.
that's the reason why i dropped yahoo a decade ago.
it has nothing to do with phones.
