Apple two-factor authentication solution

 

Apple has updated their policy regarding two factor verification. On June 15th (2017) it became required for non Apple software (like Spamdrain) to access iCloud services (e.g. mail). This means that you will need to create a special password for Spamdrain in order to allow our servers to access your mail.

If you have two factor authentication disabled, please feel free to enable it and create a special password for Spamdrain to log in. Newly created password should be entered in the password field at your Spamdrain's settings page. Just click on the added email address, update the settings with new password and click on Save.

App specific passwords allow you to sign in to your account securely when you use Spamdrain. In order to get the password, please refer to the following step by step guide from Apple:

Keywords: me.com, apple, icloud, two factor authentication.

    I had this same thing going on for a couple weeks,  

    I generated new passwords at the Apple site.....many times, and be advised you can't copy and paste the passwords you generate, and yes, you do have to type in the little dashes between the string of four letters,.... but my problem seemed to be that my e-mail address started with a capital letter in the first letter of the account name and for some reason the Spamdrain user name was a lower case.  It took me 2 weeks to figure that out, so I hope it keeps working now..
