Troubleshooting

Yahoo Mail may require you to create a unique app password to allow it to connect to a third party application such as Buildxact. If the above steps don't allow you to connect successfully, follow these steps to set up an app password in your Yahoo account:

  • Sign in to Yahoo Mail
  • Navigate to the 'Account Security' settings page
  • Click 'Generate app password'/'Manage app passwords'
  • Select 'Other' from the dropdown menu and create a new password for Buildxact
  • Copy and paste the generated password into the 'Password' field when setting up the connection in Buildxact
