AOL mail not working on K9 as of 3/17/21

Hi folks. Using K9 Mail since 2013 and really like it. AOL stopped working mid-day 3/17/21 and it’s the Authentication failure even though I tried several x, and reinstalled cleanly. smtp.aol.com 993 and smtp.aol.com 465, other settings also default as installed.

IS THIS the new password for App thing that AOL has put in (apparently? I never knew).

As far as I understood the classical AOL passwords no longer work for IMAP and pop3. AOL allows you to generate app-specific passwords instead, somehow, that allow k9 to identify itself as the E-Mail app witj access rights to your mail.
