I am attempting to connect the Yahoo Mail App to retrieve mail from blizzard.mxrouting.net so that I can provide a user with a seamless inbox along side of their Yahoo mail. Yahoo only permits this action from the mobile app, not on their full desktop browser experience.
Yahoo posted direction here. https://help.yahoo.com/kb/manage-third-party-email-addresses-yahoo-mail-sln28341.html (limited, but I can provide screen shots of what I see directly).
I enter my full email address firstname.lastname@example.org in the Yahoo screen, then I get to the next screen where it asks for the Server Settings.
I choose IMAP and complete their little form:
IMAP Address: imaps://blizzard.mxrouting.net 993
SMTP Address: smtps://blizzard.mxrouting.net 465
the preface of “imaps://” and “smtps://” is on their screen by default; I’ve tried multiple ways to input the details, both with and without the preface.
Once I hit submit, the process hangs. Yahoo offers no output error after any timeout period.
Can you check the logs to see if Yahoo is attempting to connect in some non-standard format or with some non-standard protocol? Or maybe you’re blacklisting their IP addresses? I have no other applications that fail, so I know this is not your issue (unless it’s an IP blacklist), I just need some insight so I know that I’m not going crazy.
Please PM me if you need my user ID that I’m connecting with.
Thank you very much.
