invalid password priblem - Yahoo POP


Recommended Posts

Jeff.

I have two e-mails (two users) on my account. My first POP configuration works without problems, why the second user displays "invalid password" in forwarding options? and of course it doesn't work - sadly

Noting also that Jeff G. hasn't been around in a long while .... this is a public (support) Forum .. answers can come from just about anyone ...

apparently a couple of hours sleep after a 3+ day long marathon wasn't sufficient .... I don't grok how one can have "two users" on "one account" .... that would seem to me to actually infer "two users" with "two accounts"

The other possibility would be two people using "one" e-mail account .. thus suggsting that the stored account data on "the other computer" is wrong .... ????

How the "during forwarding options" enters the picture, I don't have a clue at this point .. insufficient data (or sleep?) One would think that if the account data was wrong, the failures would be 'everywhere' ...???

Perhaps Kris50 is speaking of the "external pop accounts" that can be retrieved automatically by a SpamCop Email account? You can configure a SpamCop Email account to collect mail from up to 10 external accounts, but if something goes wrong, you take a look at the "Options" in the webmail app, and there's a "Last Error" column in which you'd see something like "invalid password." Please verify my interpretation, Kris50, so that we can try to offer some assistance.

Thanks so much for looking at forum's questions. That is very correct what you write. I had configured my second POP the same way as I did to my first POP (pop.mail.yahoo.com than user and password) and all the information is identical to my first config except the user and password. The "Last Error" colum reads "Invalid password" and of course "error count" reads how many attempts Spamcop had made (thus far 20). So, what is the deal? Truly will appreciate your input as I do like the results of "external pop's" filtering

I've read that last response a half-dozen times. I'm still lost. Probably doesn't matter as DT is the only one that spends time "looking at forum's questions" ...????

On the other hand, just focusing in on this "newly defined" issue ... it's possible that the "second" Yahoo account has been involved with a Yahoo Beta .. which has been reported in other Topics/Discussions as not being compatible with the current tools ...????

There was also another thread recently indicating a similiar problem with multiple yahoo accounts. I think that poster simply stopped trying to get both accounts working.

It may be a caching issue because the popgate system simply replicates a user logging into their account. I know when I go into Yahoo webmail manually, I have to log in, but if I go leave and come back, I am already authenticated unless I close the IE Window or sign out of Yahoo. I'm assuming that the process does not sign out of the page between attempts, so when the second attempt is made, you are still connected to the first. Remember that popgate simply emulates the webpage login you would do manually.

The thread I was referring to is located at: http://forum.spamcop.net/forums/index.php?...ost&p=45657 but it got dropped when it started working. Please read that thread and try the resetting of the account information, and if that does not work (remember that the checking is not immediate) you might want to contact JT (support[at]spamcop.net) who can check the popgate logs to see what might be going on.

Good luck and please return to provide an update as to what is going on. Thanks.

Eureka!!!.

I was dumb enough that I forgot about first and most important thing about poping from yahoo when it comes to use of external clients. It won't work unless I subscribe and pay for premium services. Basic service from pop.mail.yahoo.com won't work unless you have Mail Plus for 19.99 a year. Well worth for me and now everything (spamcop.net, mailwasher and outlook) is working just fine.

Thanks JT for replying to my e-mail

Thank you for returning and updating us all here.

I was under the assumption you were trying to use the popgate.cesmail.net setup to pop Yahoo messages for free. That may be limited to only one account. I only have one to test.

Yes, if you want to use regular POP clients, that's true. However, those of us with SpamCop mail accounts can have the mail from our *free* Yahoo mailboxes using SpamCop's "popgate.cesmail.net" in the POP account setup in Options. I just wanted to reiterate that for anyone who comes along later and gets the wrong impression from your statement about needing to pay Yahoo for a premium account. That's not necessary if you have a SpamCop email account, which can obtain the messages from Yahoo, and then in turn, can be POPed for those messages.
