(The article also only gives a link to twitter to follow the discussion - and no mention of this forum)
Anyway IŽd appreciate any assistance on this
Before U2F was available, YubiKeys supported an older OTP mechanism. If you have an old key, they won't support U2F but can still be used with FastMail because we implement the OTP mechanism.

If you're buying a new YubiKey, they all support both mechanisms, and we recommend using the U2F mode because its more secure.
