I cannot add my Yahoo mail account to the mail processor in Edge (Windows 10).
It all seems to go well, but at the last step I get an error message saying that the configuration has not been found and Error 0x80070490.
Thanks for any help.

Hi

Edge is a browser, you cannot add an email service to a browser. You can only connect to the Yahoo mail site using your Edge browser. Edge is a Windows 10 browser while Yahoo mail is a website.

Thanks, Ambucias, for taking the trouble.
You're right, of course. I meant, the mail processing service that comes with Windows 10 (I suppose a screenshot is not required).
That mail processing module of Windows 10 invites to add to it all sorts of webmail accounts, including Yahoo's very explicitly; but then why does it reject mine?

You got me! I use Windows 10 and I never heard of an email processing module.

Sorry again, Ambucias; I must be using the wrong term for this function, a misnomer.
What I mean is this module (the language in the screenshots is Spanish):

which calls for mail accounts to be added to it, with this step specifically mentioning Yahoo's mail accounts

Only to end up saying that the configuration has not been found and Error 0x80070490.
Thanks for any help

The problem is due to an error in your Windows 10 update.

I suggest you to manually reset the Windows Updates Components. Refer to the steps below to reset the Windows Updates Components:

1 Press Windows Key + X on the keyboard and then select “Command Prompt (Admin)” from the menu.
2. Stop the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. To do this, type the following commands at a command prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command.

net stop wuauserv

net stop cryptSvc

net stop bits

net stop msiserver

3. Now rename the SoftwareDistribution and Catroot2 folder. You can do this by typing the following commands in the Command Prompt. Press the “ENTER” key after you type each command.

ren C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.old

ren C:\Windows\System32\catroot2 Catroot2.old

4. Now, let’s restart the BITS, Cryptographic, MSI Installer and the Windows Update Services. Type the following commands in the Command Prompt for this. Press the ENTER key after you type each command.

net start wuauserv

net start cryptSvc

net start bits

net start msiserver

5. Type Exit in the Command Prompt to close it.

Now you may try running the Windows Updates and check if the above steps resolve the issue.

Hi, Ambucias. Thanks a lot for keeping trying to help me.
I've done all you suggest here above, and the issue remains unsolved.
I think I'll give up and settle for my present practice of accessing my Yahoo account through the webmail link in Yahoo, and my other accounts through the mail processor in Windows 10.
Thanks again for your efforts; it has been a pleasure.
