I had the same problem. I fixed it this way:
Login to your Yahoo account and then turn on “Allow apps that use less secure sign-in”. This is located in the security section.
If you are using your domain webmail (not gmail etc.) I actually solved this! Follow the instructions here: https://www.httl.com.vn/en/support/edu/everything-email/introduction-email/how-to-find-email-settingsLogin and find your email settings there, this is what I found

Hello Good Day, i have same problem like the others who comment on this site, my problem is also , i cannot login my account in Thunderbird, but when i login into webmail, it really connect and logged in , what is the problem ?
Please help get through this.
I’m having the same problem. Thunderbird keeps coming back with Username or password invalid.
First off Godaddy says that thunderbird should recognise the settings and set it up automatically as soon as I put in my email address and password. It doesn’t, it comes back with server info for outlook mail.
Anyway I put in the proper server info and port settings and it still comes back with Username or password invalid.
Just to make you aware I have tested the username and password on webmail and have access with no problems at all.
I am using the manual settings posted on godaddy for that particular email account:
Secure SSL/TLS Settings
