Adding your email address to Windows mail might fail if you are using two-step verification in your Yahoo Security.

What to do?

How to Manage Yahoo Mail App Passwords

 

This is essentially the same requirements that Google uses:

app password

or

less secure

 

What else?

If you cannot stand it, create an email account to be used with your Scan-to-Email and other mail app setups.

Add that mail account to Windows Mail.
