Yahoo POP3 access not working - connection dropped, Yahoo POP3 access not working - connection dropped
 
Hello,

I have a huge problem accessing my paid Yahoo Plus account.
Password and Settings are OK, as these settings work with thunderbird

My Logfile shows
[15:34:06]  C: Connected to legacy.pop.mail.yahoo.com, port 995
[15:34:06]  S: +OK Hello from jpop-0.1
[15:34:06]  C: CAPA

[15:34:07]  S: +OK Maildrop ready, (JPOP server ready).
[15:34:07]  C: STAT

during retrieving emails, I see in Connection Center
Status: getting number of messages

and after several seconds the connecttion ist dropped. I already checked my adress book for certificates, but I could not find some

How can I debug more detailed what's happening?

The discussion on this page: https://forums.yahoo.net/t5/Temporary-Errors/POP-access-stopped-working/td-p/199766/page/2

..suggests two possible solutions:

1) You may have to tell Yahoo to allow apps that use less secure sign-in
2) You may have to generate and use an app-specific password.

I don't know if either will help but it might be worth a shot.

If you want to see and log the full POP-login sequence between your PC and the Yahoo mail server, you could run Wireshark in the background while you (try to) pick up your mail.
