After draging my feet for some time, I finally started to use my AT&T email which is firstname.lastname@example.org.
While on another ISP, I set it us as directed with POP3 using 995 and SSL with outgoing on 465 and SSL. Wouldn't work. After many trials I changed back to microsoft defaults with NO SSL, POP3 on 110 and SMTP on 25. Worked perfectly.
Now, I have 2 ATT ISP connections. First one is old fashion DSL and while on these connections my email continued to work perfectly.
THE PROBLEM. I am now on my Uverse ATT connection and cannot send email out through ATT. (I have other accounts, Earthlink, for example, that work perfectly). I have again set it up as instructed on the ATT web site to use SSL as listed above----doesn't work. And, of course, the microsoft defaults don't work as I've listed above.
I also have an IPhone that is set to the same SMTP settings and it also can't sent ATT mail, the others work perfectly. (I can force the Iphone to send over the cell network, of course). ATT tech service doesn't seem to be available today, a holiday.
Any help would be appreciated. I need to setting that will work on outside ISPs and both ATT services. I gather port 25 is blocked by default and ATT can open it. Is that the only solution? And why don't their published settings listed above work?

Actually I got tech support on Tuesday, the system would not connect on the holiday. It would have been nice if there had been an announcement that tech support was closed, not just that they "couldn't connect".

Tried to read that whole post but my eyes got tired. Anyway....I've used the 995 & 465 settings in Outlook Express for years....back when we were on AT&T DSL and also for the past 2 1/2 years on Uverse. Never had a problem. E-mail always works flawlessly. But, admittedly, I'm not using my own domain.

block port 25 on your firewall and see if you can send email...
if you use outlook express or other clients blocking port 25 is stupid. at&t is lame... blocking port 25 is like putting a bandaid on a leg thats cut off. it doesnt do nothing!
