My attempts to use TBird, 45.6.0 to send out emails to a Yahoo Group 
have failed.
Yahoo.com is asking me to provide an App Password to send email from 
TBird. Their instructions/examples are vague.
Can someone point me to the appropriate screen within TBird to paste the 
App Password? and detailed instructions on how to get past this issue?

Regards,
VinceB.

Have you set up your TB to receive emails from Yahoo servers?  I am 
using yahoo accounts in TB and I have no such problems so perhaps you 
should post a screenshot of what error message you are getting.

Passwords are always required and I am sure you know this so your 
problem must be something else.

No problem with receiving emails from Yahoo Groups using TBird. No 
problem when using Yahoo Mail either. I have been able to create the 
required App Password; but I am unclear/unable to locate the required 
screen in TBird to paste it.

I have pasted below what initiated my awareness of this problem's existence:

The problem continues; when using TBird, I am unsuccessful in sending 
email to a Yahoo Group.

                            You just changed a security setting to block
                            apps that may use a less secure sign in
                            method from accessing your Yahoo account.
                            This improves the security to access your
                            account, which is a good thing! <br>

                            This security change may cause some email

                            important security features. You can also

You have blocked your yahoo account from accessing it from TB.  I 
suggest, go back to your Account settings and look for something like this:

as mentioned - you did it to yourself.....
You need to turn that setting back to "allow"
and BTW - the actual topic is with the "security setting" and not really 
the "password".... but we got to the corrent answer anyway.

Actually, I believe that Yahoo recently switched to OAuth2, so now you
should only need to change the AUTH method to OAuth2, just like you
should be doing for gmail accounts.

I am using vers 45.6.0, and do not find OAuth2 as an option.

Are you using POP or IMAP? I think OAUTH2 is only available for IMAP
accounts.

If you're using IMAP, it is there under Account Settings > Server
Settings > Authentication method.

Well, that is silly. I found a comment from Kent confirming this in a
thread about this back in 2015 when it was introduced in TB38.

If I cared about Yahoo (I don't), I'd go open a bug to add support for it.

But I do have an outlook.com address and it supposedly supports OAuth2,
and I got an immediate "The IMAP server does not support the selected
authentication method', so I guess I'll go open a bug to add support for
it - or better, just generic support for OAuth2, if that is possible (is
it one of those pseudo standards that isn't really?).

You have a strange definition of 'forever'.

Thunderbird didn't add support for OAuth2 until TB 38, which was in June
of 2015, so about 1 1/2 years ago. GMail added support in early 2012, so
a little less than 5 years ago.

Yahoo does indeed have IMAP.

SMTP:  smtp.mail.yahoo.com
Port 587 or 465
use:  STARTTLS
Incoming Server:  imap.mail.yahoo.com
Port 993
use:  SSL/TLS & "Normal password"

We weren't talking about imap, we were talking about OAuth2 support over
IMAP.

Thunderbird's OAuth2 support only works for gmail currently.

I just opened a bugzilla account and found some open bugs and a comment
that this has to be done on a per server basis.

No idea why that is, makes no sense to me. What should be done is just
add generic OAuth2 support, then deal with problematic servers in their
own bugs.

Anyway, I opened one for outlook/office365.com:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1330049

and there is one (for anyone who cares) for adding support for Yahoo here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1293958

and for anyone who cares about AOL (really? seriously? it is 2017
ya'll), here:

It is 2017, Verizon owns AOL, and will soon own Yahoo.

No idea what Verizon plans to do with all that email from Yahoo. I 
understand they use AOL servers for their email now.

I closed my Yahoo account because they indicated they weren't going to 
honor visitors to their websites privacy settings in their browser.

Now with billions of email accounts hacked, I wouldn't touch Yahoo with 
my AOL mail account.

YMMV
