I have an Xtra email account which I access through Thunderbird.

If I set my Yahoo! Xtra account to use Two-Factor Authentication, does that mean every time I open Thunderbird I will have to type in a code.

Thanks.

Some programs aren't able to do 2FA yet. Usually you can generate an application specific code that you use instead but you'd need to look into it more as I've had no need to go too crazy with my security over email and usually the purpose is destroyed if you have your password stored/remembered.

Cheers,
