App-specific passwords and two-step verification

If you have a Mailstore account and use an email program like Outlook or Mac Mail, or your email program sends mail through smtp.pobox.com, you need to set up an app-specific password once you turn on two-step verification. (Email programs cannot use 2FA -- it is for the web only.)

App-specific passwords cannot be the same as your main account password. Once you've added the app-specific password, update your email programs to use the new password immediately.
