    For almost a week I have not been able to get into my Yahoo Mail account AT ALL, or into either of the subaccounts I have.

    NB. I have only my Samsung Galaxy S5. I also have an LG tablet but I haven't set it up yet. No full-size computer; I'm writing this message in an Internet café.

    Here is what I get when I try to log into my principal accoount on my Android device:

    Welcome to Yahoo Mail!
    Sign in with Yahoo.

    Tap

    Sign in to Yahoo Mail. Enter your email Next

    (My email address)

    Tap

    Hello (my email) Password Sign in

    (My password)

    Uh-oh ... Your account needs updating. please sign in at login.yahoo.com from an desktop computer so Yahoo can guide you through the process safely and securely.

    ***

    So that's exactly what I did earlier this week at an Internet café,probably this very one. But all I got was a message saying that Yahoo couldn't find the page. So here I am, about to try again.

    I know that Yahoo Mail underwent an upgrade. and now all the Yahoo email accounts of the same person have the same password. Based on a page that appeared forn an instant on the screen, I know that Yahoo knows my updated password. But it won't let me in.

    If the fault is with Yahoo, shouldn't there be lots of new threads saying, "Help! I can't get into Yahoo Mail!"But it seems I'm the only one with this problem.

    So now I will try to log in with the big computer.

    I just tried to sign in through the Internet (Firefox) and got this, same as last time:

    Sorry, the page you requested was not found.
    Please check the URL for proper spelling and capitalization. If you're having trouble locating a destination on Yahoo!, try visiting the Yahoo! home page or look through a list of Yahoo!'s online services. Also, you may find what you're looking for if you try searching below.

    Please try Yahoo! Help Central if you need more assistance.

    Same when I signed in from Yahoo's home page.

    HELP!

    It's even worse. I can't get into sites connected with my Yahoo account. I can't find contact information in my Yahoo contacts.

    Please, please help me.

    That is the FIRST thing I try to do when I have a problem like that.

    But thanks; with the link I have more options to try.

    Is this a personal (yahoo.com) email address or is this a yahoo hosted domain email account?

    Found this in Yahoo's FAQ's

    Important note: If you access your business email on third-party applications using POP or IMAP, you will need to generate a new app password after updating your mailbox. This will replace any previous app passwords. An app password can be generated for iOS Mail, Android Mail, Outlook, and other programs. Learn how to generate an app password. If you are using the Yahoo Mail app, you will use your business email password, not an app password. Important: Do not enter the temporary password that is initially generated into third-party applications. Doing so will result in connection errors.

    My account is a personal account, not a business account.

    What's a Yahoo-hosted domain email account? Does it include att.com and the AT&T family of domains that were grandfathered in?

    A regular Yahoo email would be something like myname@yahoo.com. If, however, you registered a domain through Yahoo you could have an email like myname@mydomain.com. The second would be a Yahoo hosted domain email since they set you up with the server account. You access each type of account a little differently.

    Just checked, both Yahoo web and Yahoo app worked for me.
