Yahoo email

I've been a long term user of Yahoo which I access via Outlook 2010. I like Outlook and don't want to change but I now get messages from Yahoo saying this is not a secure method of logging in. I guess I'll have to upgrade to Office 365 some time this year as one computer in the house uses Office 2007 for which security upgrades cease in a few months.

Does anyone have advice please?

Re: Yahoo email

Yhere are some simple and some complex things - if you mean a simple outlook client to Yahoo mail on server then the 1st thing is what is your connection type. It may be as simple as changing that from pop3 to IMAP (google it if you are not sure)

beyond that I don't use Yahoo and am not qualified to comment

However on the wider aspect of MS/outlook.com/office365 - it works fine as long as you do it the way they want you to. If you are doing something more complex then be aware MS are currently making changes as well and I am currently having some challenges because I use external domains from where my email servers are held and getting the new mandated in outlook 2016 autodiscover service to work is a PITA if you are doing anything non-standard (I know it serves me right but has worked fine for 10 years)
