Create/use Yahoo App password

From 20.10.2020 you need a Yahoo App password for GcMail Mail and other e-mail programs

You can already generate an app password now, which you have to enter in GcMail in the settings/email account under login/password.

Attention important: Please put your old password for Yahoo aside, because you still need it to log in to your Yahoo account on the Yahoo website.

Please proceed as follows:

Log in to your Yahoo account, then click on this link:

You will reach the following page:
