Hi, this is for both.

I'm reviewing the mails sent to the list and definetly this is a
Yahoo side issue, not a Stunnel issue, by the Eudora's log.

Just check you are using the credentials as:

username at yahoo.com

The TLD for yahoo might be .com, .co.uk, .es, .fr, .de, .au, etc,
depending on how you signed up (from a year or so all are .com).

And the password, if you didn't do anything, is the account password,
otherwise the app password (account area).

If I remember correctly there was no need anymore to enable POP3/IMAP
access, but check it in the mail settings (web interface). And
disable to allow only secure apps, or enable low security apps (I
don't remember how they call it).

If you still experience problems. I have no clue.

In the past months there were a warning in user account area about
banning "non-secure" apps, but I still can access, so, no clue what
else can prevent you from log-in.
