Yahoo mail not working with outlook 2016 using windows 10

I am using outlook 2016 on a widows 10 computer. I have a hotmail, yahoo and gmail account connected to outlook 2016. All were working fine until a few days ago when yahoo mail would not sync. After tying to fix it I decided to delete the account and reinstall and now I cannot reinstall it.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

  1. Sign in to your Yahoo Mail account using your web browser.
  2. On the top-right, click the menu (gear) button, and select Account Info.
  3. Click on Account Security.
  4. Turn on the Allow apps that use less secure sign in toggle switch.

The "Allow apps that use less secure sign in" option is not in the settings menu. Thanks anyway.

Well, actually I showed my son the sites you suggested and he figured it out. He's out of work so I figured he needed something to do. Stay safe.
