In the email client on your pc you will have to change the password to the new one - it will be still to using the old one when it tries to collect your pop yahoo email.

I have five e-mail accounts on Yahoo and have changed all five passwords subsequently find that if I send say, five e-mails from one of those accounts back to itself only two get through.

I spoke tonight with a Non UK speaking English person who advised that it was not just me but many others

I now find that e-mails that were sent up to two hours earlier are appearing after ones that were sent in the last few minutes.

Double check password by logging in to yahoo webmail page.

Save any important eMails.

Delete account and recreate it

I'm amazed that anyone is still using Yahoo email after recent revelations about account hacking.

Log in to the Yahoo page and go to your account settings. There is an option"Allow less secure apps to sign in" Allow this and see if it cures the issue.

I have just updated my yahoo password and now it won't let Thunderbird check my eMails anymore, until I changed above.
