Yahoo account fails to sync

Yahoo recently started to use a secure log in process that impedes access to the account with an "insecure method" used by third party software (as noted in the description). Un-checking this option should allow you to setup the account in MailWise normally.  

To do this, go to Yahoo.com, then -

  1. Log in to your Yahoo account
  2. Hover on your username on the top corner and then select "Account Info".

     
  3. Select 'Account Security'
  4. Check 'Allow apps that use less secure sign-in'
