Yahoo Mail remains inaccessible. Why?

December 30, 2016 at 13:12:39
Specs: IOS 10.2
Why Yahoo continues not to recognize the new password I created after being advised early in December 2016 about the hack and the need to change my password?
Thank you in advance for any and all responses.

I see your using iOS which probably means your using the iOS mail app on an iPhone or iPad (just guessing here since you didn't say if you use a mail app for your email or if you use Yahoo Mail on their website, some more info about this in your post would have been useful).

Assuming you that access Yahoo Mail with the iOS mail app on iPhone or iPad, read this:

Yahoo for Mac OSX and iOS is pretty dodgy currently, and has been for some time..

I can login to Yahoo mail via Safari or similar browsers in OSX/iOS no problem (generally), but using the Yahoo app for messenger - it's no longer supported on Mac OSX but is ok on iOS.

Currently OSX Yahoo messenger will not acccept the correct password, which is accepted for messenger in iOS. Yahoo mail account is ok using the iOS mail app.

If I log into Yahoo on windows it does accept the current password. Thus one is inclined to put the problem back with Yahoo and/or Apple-land... Likely neither will bother much with the problem, especially Yahoo seem less inclined to respond to calls for help,directly; and have hived off support to third party sources (who aren't free, even if the initial phone call is...)
