Using Yahoo for Email sending

Per Yahoo's knowledgebase at the settings in CDE's program to send email is:
SMTP Server:
Username:   <Yahoo email address>
Password:  <Yahoo user password>
Use Advanced Settings to set SMTP Server Port:  Yes
SMTP Server Port: 587
Email Server requires SSL and/or TLS Mode: Yes
SSL/TLS Start Mode: Automatic

Important: Your Yahoo Account Security must be configured to allow apps that use less secure sign in. If this is disabled, the CDE program will usually receive a response of incorrect user name and/or password errors.


If you've activated two-step verification or Account Key for your Yahoo account, you'll need to generate and use an "app password" to access Yahoo Mail from BLS. Go to Yahoo's knowledgebase at and then click on "Generate third-party app passwords" under the "related articles" box.
