mail login - secure mail key

I set this up to prevent having to change my password every time I log in to my account on my computer.  Now, the secure mail key does not let me access my account on my android phone using the yahoo mail app.

The Yahoo Mail app does not require an SMK.  Since it has Oauth2 built in, it uses your regular account password,

Thanks, at the suggestion of another user I chatted online with a rep and he resynced my account on the server and so far it is working.  Time will tell.

I set up a secure mail key to try to eliminate the need to change my password constantly when accessing my email on my computer.  It didn't work on my cell phone.  Hopefully the sync the rep did does the trick long term.

Thank you for responding.
