When setting up your Hushmail account to a desktop or mobile mail application with two-step verification feature enabled, you’ll need to enter in some additional information into the Password field of your mail application.
Rather than using a verification code sent to an alternate address or a phone number, Hushmail will provide you with a 20-character IMAP/POP password (also known as a “backup verification code”), which you’ll enter in addition to your regular passphrase in the Password field of your mail application.
Where Do I Find My Backup Verification Code?
2. Go to the Preferences page by clicking the menu in the upper right corner, as shown here:
3. At the bottom of the Security tab, you will see a section labeled Using POP & IMAP, as shown below:
4. At the bottom of this section, you will see a line that reads your_passphrase, followed by a space and then a string of 20 letters separated by spaces.
When prompted for your password in the mail application you’re using, you’ll just need to enter in your Hushmail passphrase, then a single space, then the 20 letters that show on the Security tab (including the spaces between them).
For example, if your passphrase was your_passphrase, and your backup verification code was 12345 67890 12345 67890 as shown in the previous image, you’d enter all of the following into the Password field of your mail application:
your_passphrase 12345 67890 12345 67890
Depending on the mail application, you may need to enter this in to the Password field for both the incoming and outgoing server settings sections.
