  • The November 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. Lightroom Classic includes the ability to export the same photos as multiple sizes/formats in a single export, content aware fill for panorama edges and more. It does require a catalog format upgrade and there are updated system requirements, so you may want to wait a few days before upgrading.
    Lightroom (cloud-based service) has export options (such as TIFF format, renaming and color space), custom sort order on the desktop, copy/paste to multiple photos on iOS and more.
    The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes.
  • Stop struggling with Lightroom! There's no need to spend hours hunting for the answers to your Lightroom Classic questions. All the information you need is in Adobe Lightroom Classic - The Missing FAQ!

    To help you get started, there's a series of easy tutorials to guide you through a simple workflow. As you grow in confidence, the book switches to a conversational FAQ format, so you can quickly find answers to advanced questions. And better still, the eBooks are updated for every release, so it's always up to date.

Lightroom is the mail client here and your use another mail client outside of Lightroom that has already been qualified for two factor authentication. Check with your mail service provider to see if they use two factor authentication and what steps you need to do to authenticate the Lightroom Mail client.

I have rebooted my Computer, Updated LR.

I have spoken to Sky who confirm that i do not have two step verification set up, so it is not this that is causing the issue.
They cannot see any issues., especially as I can sent emails through Sky/Yahoo without any issue.
spent the whole afternoon on the telephone to Adobe and they so far have been unable to sort it. cannot get any account verified within the LR Email A/c Manager. This includes themselves setting up an account for them, outside of sky and still cannot get their Account Validated.
further ideas please.
