Can Not Get Messages From Yahoo Starting July 26, 2019
« on: July 26, 2019, 10:20:33 AM »
Running Windows 10 Pro.  PGO 4.0.896.  Could not get messages from Yahoo today.  Logged into Yahoo and set less secure apps to on and still can not get messages from Yahoo.  Installed 896 but it did not make a difference.  I am getting in to the website without 2 factor but I am being asked for captcha.  Any guesses?

Changed my password and still unable to download messages.  Also didn't you setup a facebook page but I could not find it.  I was hoping maybe there would be some help there.

It appears the problem started that I needed to change my password.  I changed the master login password but it had been so long since I changed the password I had forgotten until today I had to change the password for each group.  All is now working.

Great, OK!

Also worth noting is that if you don't logout from Yahoo online and let the session time out they can lock you out.

See attached.


The cure is just to login again online and logout properly!

Cheers,

Wilson.

Happened again today, August 22, 2019.  I only login through PG Offline.  I signed into the groups through the web and made sure I signed off properly.  Will see what happens tomorrow.

If YG are asking you to enter Captcha then they'll be serving that page to PGO when it tries to login.

If you solve the Captcha and then logout and login does it still ask you to solve the Captcha?

PGO will not be able to deal with that.  Captcha is designed to keep apps like PGO out.

Yahoo is not asking for a Captcha.  PG Offline would not work this morning.  Logged into Yahoo directly without a problem and no Captcha.  Made sure I signed out.  No 2 factor.  I guess tomorrow if I can not make it work I will try changing my password again.  One thing I noticed under my account was it showed a list of active Firefox sessions.  I deleted all of these.  I have to figure out why these are there.  I uncheck stay signed in when I log on through the Web.  You know me, I will play with it.

Good day,
Since 19-20 Aug I have not been able to sync my groups.
Any idea on how to solve? Works as normal via web login but not via app.

Get following message:
"10:04:18 Downloading completed.
10:04:18 Login failed. Either you have the wrong username & password OR you have two factor authentication switched on. In Yahoo Groups, please set two factor authentication to 'OFF'. More information can be found here: https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN5013.html"
