    Yahoo account won't receive mail

    I've started using Mail app in Wndows 10 on a trial basis, on my desktop PC.

    I've added my Yahoo mail account and can send emails but cannot receive them.

    I tried using a solution offered in a post on another thread, by logging into my Yahoo account, and going to security to add a specific password for my account for apps, but cannot find any option to do this.

    The only option it offers is to use/disable less secure options.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Update: Mail started being received 30 minutes after I had sent it from another email client.

    Gripes about Mail app:

    • Emails can't be saved to desktop
    • Font defaults can't be set size and text chosen, eg Arial
