Yahoo Mail Setup with Truckerdox

 

Yahoo Mail is compatible with Truckerdox, but may require extra steps to allow the app to communicate with your mailbox.  In addition to the standard email setup instructions, the following steps may be necessary:

 

 

 

Enable POP Access

 

By default, Yahoo Mail leaves POP access disabled until you specifically request it.  Follow these steps to correct the issue:

 

  1. Sign in to Yahoo Mail.

  2. Mouse over the Settings menu icon (gear icon) and select Settings.

  3. Click Accounts.

  4. Beside "Yahoo Account," click Edit.

  5. Beside "Access your Yahoo Mail elsewhere," select POP.

  6. Pick how you want to handle spam emails:

    • Don't download spam email - No spam is sent to the mail client.

    • Download spam with no special indicators - Spam is sent to the mail client as-is.

    • Download spam, but prefix the word "Spam" - Spam is sent to the mail client and says "Spam" in the subject.

  7. Click Save.

Manually Configure Email Settings

 

The built-in mail server settings for Yahoo Mail may not work for some accounts, particularly those that do not end in "yahoo.com".  You may need to manually configure the email server settings in the Truckerdox app.

 

  1. Open the Truckerdox app and log in.

  2. Tap the Settings (gear) icon at the bottom of the screen.

  3. Tap the Inbox Setting button.

  4. Tap the Select Domain drop-down and choose Other at the bottom of the list.

  5. Input the following settings:

    • Mail server type:  POP

    • Incoming mail server:  pop.mail.yahoo.com

    • Outgoing mail server (SMTP):  smtp.mail.yahoo.com

    • Username:  your email address

    • Password:  your password

  6. Tap the Save button.  The app should confirm successful login.

 

 

Create Secure App Password

 

The following instructions only apply to users with Two-Step Verification enabled.  After a user has enabled Two-Step Verification, Yahoo expects users to generate a unique "App password" for each application that logs in.

 

  1. Visit Yahoo's security settings page at https://login.yahoo.com/account/security

  2. Scroll down to the App Passwords section.

  3. Place your cursor into the Nickname your app box and enter a name.  Example:  "Truckerdox on my iPhone"

  4. Click the Generate password button

  5. A new app password will be displayed on your screen.  Write down the 16-character app password.

  6. Open the Truckerdox app on your mobile device and log in.

  7. Click the Settings (gear) icon at the bottom of the Truckerdox app.

  8. Click the Inbox Setting button.

  9. Input your new app password in the Password field.

  10. Click Save to save your changes.  The app should indicate successful login.
