SMTP Troubleshooting for Yahoo

Several email providers opt to provide an additional layer of security in your email settings which need to be altered to enable SMTP in WriteUpp.

If you use Yahoo you need to:

  1. Login to your Yahoo Account and open up the mail section
  2. Click on the purple cog in the top right-hand corner and select Account Info from the drop-down
  3. From the left-hand menu click Account Security 
  4. At the bottom of the page it says Allow apps that use less secure sign-in click the slider so that it turns from grey to blueImage_2017-11-29_at_4.48.03_PM.png

    Once this has been enabled and you can send a test email you need to be patient as it can take several minutes for the test message to enter your inbox
