POP Mail has stopped working
- I am using latest release of Eudora under Windows 7 and POP mail from Yahoo had been working fine except the semi regular request from Yahoo to resign in to Yahoo. When I got to Yahoo I was signed on but resigning in allowed POP mail on my computer to work fine again
I am logged in to my Yahoo account at Yahoo on the web. All is fine there
In the past I get all my Yahoo mail through POP mail from my computer and have for many years.
POP mail has stopped working on my computer. I get the message "Incorrect user name or password MBR1212. No matter how many times I go back to Yahoo and sign on again I find myself still signed in and sign in again but at my computer I keep getting the message "Incorrect user name or password MBR1212
Is there a phone number I can use to reach Yahoo tech support?
Is anyone else having the same problem

two do interact then Yahoo is doing something screwy which isn't normal
for email services.

been corrupted, but I'm surprised Eudora itself isn't prompting you to
re-enter the password for that persona -- that's what it usually does to
me anytime there's been a password failure.
> Is anyone else having the same problemI've read a few other complaints. One person suggested that Eudora can't
handle some of the newer authentication protocols, or handles them
incorrectly, and has become incompatible with those email services that
require the newer protocols. And Yahoo may have recently made just such
You might write down your current settings (both tabs) and try different
settings, particularly the authentication controls.
Sorry I can't be of any actual help, I don't have POP access to my Yahoo
