Hi Lara,
If I am understanding your question correctly - try checking out this post in the "Announcements" board of the forum: Yahoo/AOL login errors (Oauth2 is required) and let us know if this announcement topic addresses your concerns.

I think Lara is suggesting that the account does work in POP Peeper (because it supports Oauth2), but it does not work in Windows Live Mail 2012.

Based on the year of that client (2012), I'm guessing that it does not support Oauth2. If that's the case, you'll need to update your client or, alternatively, you should be able to use the "app password" method that's described in the link that lakrsrool provided above. Even if you use the app password method for WLM, you can still use Oauth2 in POP Peeper.

I've done some research and it looks like WLM doesn't support Oauth2 at all; and Windows Mail only supports Oauth2 in Win10.
