Check out the steps below to learn how to properly set up Inbox by BombBomb with your Yahoo or AOL account:
For a Yahoo or AOL account, you will need to adjust a setting within your account that allows BombBomb access. To use Yahoo or AOL with this application, you will need to adjust your security settings within your mail account. (This won’t compromise your mail account in any way, but will give our app access to your emails, as other mails apps do.)
Once you log in, click on your name in the upper right corner and select "Account Info."
If you have the 2-step verification enabled:
Click the "Generate app password" link. This will provide you with a password that you can use to log in to your Yahoo account through the BombBomb Inbox app. Skip the next step and go straight to downloading and installing the BombBomb Inbox app.
Click the "Account Security" tab on the left side of your screen, scroll down to the section that says, "Allow apps that use less secure sign in" and turn this option ON. Now your security settings have been adjusted and you can download the BombBomb Inbox app.
After downloading and launching the BombBomb Inbox app, you'll be prompted to log into your BombBomb account on the first screen. Enter your BombBomb login credentials and tap "Sign In."
You will then be asked to sync the email that you'd like to use with the BombBomb Inbox app. Enter the email address, the name you'd like to appear to your recipients, and a short description of the email (i.e. "Work" or "Personal" or "Yahoo").
On the next screen, we will have pre-filled all of the information that Yahoo and AOL require for their mail servers based on the email address you entered earlier. Enter your password into the "password" field. And that's it - now, Inbox by BombBomb is properly synced with your email address! Continue through the following prompts to complete the setup. If you use 2-step verification through Yahoo or AOL, enter the password that was generated for you through the link in your Account Settings.
