Thought I'd post a quick thanks to FM -- I just set up 2FA with a pair of Yubi U2F keys, and Google Authenticator as a backup and it went flawlessly. Well done! The new system appears to be pretty good so far!

You should also post this to their Twitter - after all it's their preferred method of communication with their customers.

Of course Twitter, after all FM is an email provider, isn't it?

Twitter? What's that? I thought email and forums were cutting edge! ;-)

No, but seriously, FM would positively lap up your comments.

You may even get a mention on their Love Page.

Trusted Computers and Kicking Trusted Computers

How am I able to "kick" one or selected Trusted computers without kicking all trusted computers?
It seems at the moment I have to log into each trusted PC that I want to kick (unless I want to kick all).
But what if the PC I want to kick is now remote from me?

James, the Yubikey issue may be fixed now. (I contacted support. They fixed a few things, and mine is working fine now.) If you try again it might work now.

SMS are involved, but full details of the recovery process have not been explained.
One of Robn's post implies that there is something more than just receiving an SMS.

Anyone with an Yubikey know if you need administrator rights to use the thing?

not sure, but it is easy enough to try it - just go to password/security and try to add it.

I am using an old one I bought that is still set to its default settings.

Email sending stopped

After choosing 2FA yesterday, everything was working fine. Since few hours email sending stopped working from 3rd party clients.

Tested on iPhone 6, Mail for Mac

I get same message "Cannot send, username or password is incorrect".
