Can't connect Yandex accounts


Can’t add Yandex accounts.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Created app Password, Enabled IMAP
  2. Mailspring can’t authorize

Expected Behavior



  • Windows 11
    • Installation Method: installer
  • Mailspring Version: 1.9.2

Additional Context

Error Log I got:

Important: You must enable IMAP and you may need to link a phone number to connect to your Yandex account. If you use two-factor auth, you must create an App Password for Mailspring.

Waiting for Account JSON:

Waiting for Identity JSON:
info: Identity created at 1641816398 - using ID Schema 1
OPENSSL_Uplink(5D0DD878,08): no OPENSSL_Applink

There’s no need for app password AFAIK. It’s just IMAP with the right settings but anyway when adding an account, you just select Yandex.Mail…
