Yahoo Email authentication failed

    I'm using 2 Rocketmail/Yahoo POP accounts by an Arch Linux desktop machine with 2 MUAs, Claws and Evolution. Due to Yahoo "hiccups" every now and then I need to delete and create new app passwords.
    At the moment both MUAs are able to retrieve mails from both Rocketmail/Yahoo accounts. Evolution can send mails by both accounts and Claws is able to successfully send using one account, but the other account always returns

    ** error occurred on authentication
    *** Authentication failed:
    535 5.7.0 (#AUTH005) Too many bad auth attempts.
    I've generated several times a new app password and waited for 24 hours, to no avail.

    Any hints are welcome.
