it's not about considering to use it, just the opposite, I'd really
like to offer OAuth2 for Yahoo! servers, but Yahoo! offers only these
scopes for new applications (as of today) [1]:

|  Select private user data APIs that your application needs to access.
|  [ ] Contacts
|  [ ] Fantasy Sports
|  [ ] Oath Ad Platforms
|  [ ] Profiles (Social Directory)
|  [ ] Relationships (Social Directory)

There's no mail, there's no calendar, only contacts would be usable for

Thank you for a detailed, as usual, analysis. I followed your steps and found no solutions either.

In addition, my personal interpretation, based on [1] and [2], that non OAuth2 IMAP access will be permanently disabled from March 2nd, 2020 thus making Evolution Mail completely unusable with Yahoo.

One of answers [3] mentions that Yahoo must explicitly enable Mail API:

In order for you to see the mail checkboxes in the list of potential scopes, Yahoo have to white-list your developer account. I could not find any documentation about this, or instructions for how to ask for it, so I can't back this up with any documentation.
