Repeated OAuth2 permissions (Yahoo SERVERBUG)

Post by jdbliss »

I am having to repeat the process of permitting PP access to some of my Yahoo email addresses over and over again.
I have PP running on 2 machines, wondering if that could be the problem as I am only re-authorizing on one at the moment.

Yahoo servers have had issues for the past couple of days. It doesn't seem that re-authenticating oauth improves anything, so I don't recommend bothering with that and just riding it out for now.

Also, I would add that the Yahoo server issues that have been occurring over the past 36+ hours or so are intermittent - meaning that at the time when the errors do clear any new messages will be retrieved by POP Peeper as a result of a Mail Check at that time.

It appears Yahoo has finally got their servers in order (all 13 of my Yahoo platform accounts have been error free for the past 36+ hours). =D>
