I am having an issue with Outlook 2016 frequently prompting for the username and password for the server:  smtp.mail.yahoo.com  
It did this when I had the mail setup as POP account on my older PC (Windows 7)  - I then purchased a new PC (Windows 10) and setup the email as IMAP and I am still getting this frequent pop up.  The username and password are correct.  I did not have this issue with previous version of Outlook.  Any help you could provide would be appreciated.  Thank you.
