    Has anyone discovered a solution or a workaround to this? I have had the same address for 22+ years and don't really want to change.

    I have the same problem since 4 Tuesday. Access via mobile is possible but outlook does not sync anymore. Have set up the IMAP new allready 3 times, but did not change.

    Problem solved - in the security settings (yahoo webpage) you have to create an app-password for outlook

    If POP or IMAP stops working correctly check your settings, and if it still isn't working it is probably a glitch.

    Some mobiles, especially i-mobiles are having troubles. Desktop modes are the fix.
