Re: You must update your Rogers email account settings

I got one on the primary account about a week ago, none on the three secondary accounts I've checked (5 to go).

The roll out does seem a bit shall we say impromptu.

Re: You must update your Rogers email account settings

I think a bunch on this, was due to Yahoos quick change on them.
Well, it was needed.. but sort of like HERE YOU GO CHANGE NOW!

My wife didnt have much of a choice on her regular Yahoo account, went to log in via the yahoo app on her phone, forced to do the change over, change to a fingerprint or other method on the phone for authentication, etc.  At the same time enabled the 2 step on web login for that account, she needs to authorize it on the app on her phone to go into the webmail.

 

 

I hope to pray.. that the rumors that rogers might pull back to doing their own again without yahoo come true.

Me too, but for other reasons.  However, I expect other email providers will also move to this.  GMail also support OAuth2, though they still allow passwords.

 

There is an overall trend to tighten up email security, such as using SSL/TLS encryption, etc..  It's something that's long overdue.  Another thing we could use is easier access & use of X.509 certificates for end to end encryption and authenication.  It would be nice if every ISP or email provider could supply X.509 certificates to their customers/users.

Re: You must update your Rogers email account settings

Apologies for not posting this sooner. Having had a failure the first time, I had said that I would try setting this up again with Windows Live Mail, and post my experience.  So here it is, including my step-by-step process, as I interpreted the instructions:

 

Note: I am using a POP3 server, and I have Rogers email set up on two computers.  My laptop and my desktop computer.

 

  1. I started Windows Live Mail on my laptop computer, and signed in as usual.
  2. Leaving Live Mail open, I then opened Internet Explorer and went to the Rogers Member Center sign in page.
  3. I entered my Rogers email address and password, and selected Next.
  4. I then selected Account Information.
  5. I selected Authorized Applications.
  6. In the Name your password field, I typed a name (for example, Hotmail-laptop), then I selected Generate, and I copied the password to my clipboard.
  7. Going back to Live Mail, I right clicked on the Rogers email account in the left-hand column.
  8. I clicked Properties and then the Servers tab.
  9. In the Incoming Mail Server section, I checked the Remember Password box, and pasted the App Password. I also pasted the password into a document that I saved on my computer.
  10. I clicked Apply.
  11. Then I went back to Internet Explorer, and clicked Done. 

After closing all windows, I opened Windows Live Mail again, and everything worked.

 

I then went to my desktop computer. I copied the document with the password to this computer. I opened the document with the password, and copied the password to my clipboard.  Then I opened Windows Live Mail and repeated steps 8 through 11 on the desktop Computer.

 

I closed all windows, opened Windows Live Mail again, and everything worked.

 

Unfortunately, there are two annoyances I have with the way it all works now.

 

First, I am used to entering a password when I open my email. I prefer it that way, so that if someone else uses my computer, they can’t see my email, unless they know the password.  Now when I open live mail, it connects to the Rogers Account without requesting a password.

 

Secondly, when I sent a test email from my desktop computer, it only showed in the sent folder on my desktop computer, and not on my laptop, and vice versa. I don’t understand why doing this change would cause that.  I will have to try it again, in case it was just a temporary glitch of some sort.

 

The first of these is not a big issue, as nobody else uses my computer, other than occasionally my wife, and I have nothing in my email I need to hide from her. For the second one, I can find a workaround.  For example, if I really need to have something on both computers, I can always send myself a BCC.  Normally, I use my desktop computer for sending email, unless I am traveling, so it is not likely to be an issue most of the time anyway.

That is a "feature" of POP.  If you want messages to appear on all devices, use IMAP.  It was designed to be used on multiple devices, POP wasn't.

Yes, you are right.  I was confused, because I thought I saw a message in my sent folder on the laptop that I had sent yesterday from the desktop.  But I was wrong.  It was a message with a similar subject line that I had sent a while back, apparently from the laptop.

Also, possibly confused by my wife's email on outlook.com that was set up as IMAP.

Re: You must update your Rogers email account settings

I received this notice as well, but have not made any changes.  My iphone, laptop and desktop email access still works fine.  I use Micrososft Outlook 2016 on the three devices and occassionally use the webmail.  Are there exceptions to this change ?  Does it depend on the generation of Outlook or device ?

 

Thanks.

Re: You must update your Rogers email account settings

I haven't done anything yet either. No further communication out from Rogers. Would be nice to know if this is still "go" and when it takes effect.

Re: You must update your Rogers email account settings

You're assuming there will be another communication....

Joking aside, does anyone know what sort of feedback Rogers has been getting?

Re: You must update your Rogers email account settings

Just a comment on using the same passkey on multiple email clients on different devices.

 

It would appear that Rogers has still not fully implemented the full requirements around individual passkeys.

 

I have out of curiousity, tried setting up a windows mail, thunderbird, and Pegasus client on same and different computers using a non-rogers yahoo email account (i.e., it is a true yahoo mail account with nothing to do with Rogers).

 

When I set those up, I tried using the same passkey, and it allowed me to set them up one time.  But after trying the different clients and computers a second time it advised me I was trying to use a one time use passkey - it only worked on the first device I used it on.  I had to create a seperate one for each device ultimately.

 

So if Rogers is laying their slightly different model of the Yahoo model (i.e., on Yahoo, you can turn it all off, you can use 2 stage authentication, Rogers takes you to the member portal and provides no access to the full Yahoo security options), I suspect that we will eventually see it that we need one passkey for each one.

 

So for example - Outlook on Lenovo, Outlook on gateway, Pegasus on something else, etc.  So I suspect that even though you can carry over the same passkey across all email clients right now, eventually you may not be able to.

 

The other thing I haven't checked, is that last week when I tried, I could actually skip the passkey totally and use my existing Rogers email login password, which if the passkey feature was turned on, it should not be possible.  It is not possible with a pure Yahoo account anymore.

 

And the fact that people can still operate while still doing nothing at all, means that the full feature security restrictions have not been turned on as a requirement.  You can set it up right now with one passkey, multiple passkeys, your existing password, and they all work.  If it is like Yahoo security once turned on, you won't be able to use the existing password key and will have to create one for each outlook or whatever client is on each computer.

 

But we won't know until it is fully turned on.  This was discussed very early in the thread that rogers had confirmed that it had not been turned on and they did not have a drop dead date yet.

 

I know the thread is long, so thought I would bring it back up again, the above issues.

 

But I will say as I did then, we won't really know exactly how it works and any issues until they do turn it on.  It would appear from my test of a yahoo account though that when they do turn it on, we will need a separate passkey on each device/client.  That is just my best guess based upon what we have been told to date, and my own testing with the Rogers/Yahoo email accounts I have, and a separate Yahoo email.

 

At the end of the day, it doesn't really matter to me anyway - I switched all my email to gmail about a year ago, and I do get the occassional email in my rogers yahoo email, but I immediately change it.  I also have my Rogers email set up to forward to my gmail, so I don't even open my yahoo account anymore.

 

I want nothing to do with anything Yahoo.
