Configure Yahoo account using 2 steps verification
Some user might have enabled 2-step verification (Figure 6a) from yahoo email web portal. To continue setting up with this configuration, user needs to generate new password from the web portal (Figures 6B-6E) before they are able to use this new password (one time affair) on dial. From the yahoo web site, generate a new password for android mail (figure 6C). Copy this password and paste it as the password for the existing yahoo account (figure 6A). Once this is completed, the account will be configured on dial. For users who did not enable this option, the usual login password should work.
