Re: Outlook 2010 Issues with att.yahoo.

I too have been having the same problems with Outlook and AT&T mail that everyone else has posted about. My problems started about two weeks ago. I just solved -my- problem this afternoon. From looking at everything, it looks like AT&T has migrated completely to Yahoo! for the email accounts (at least for mine: @bellsouth.net). I used the following POP information from Yahoo!'s help files:
- Complete the following for the "E-mail Server Names" section:
- My Incoming mail server is a: Select POP3 from the pull-down menu.
- Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server: Type pop.mail.yahoo.com
- Outgoing mail (SMTP) server: Type smtp.mail.yahoo.com
- Do the following for the Internet Mail Logon section:
- Account Name: Type your email address including the @provider.net information : ie. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Password: Type your AT&T password.
- Check the Remember password checkbox if you don't want Outlook Express to prompt you for your password each time you check your mail.
- Do not check the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) checkbox.
- Click Finish to save your account and exit the wizard.
- Under Mail tab, select pop.mail.yahoo.com and then click Properties.
- Select Servers tab.
- Under"Outgoing Mail Server," check the My server requires authentication checkbox.
- Select the Advanced tab and do the following:
- In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) field, type 465 for the port number.
- Under that, check the This server requires a secure connection (SSL) checkbox.
- Under Incoming mail (POP3), check the This server requires a secure connection (SSL) checkbox. The number in the Incoming mail (POP3) field usually changes automatically from 110 to 995. If it doesn’t, type 995 for the port number.
I found that just using the username was not enough for Yahoo!. I had to use my email@example.com
Like I said, this seems to have worked for me using my @bellsouth.net account and Outlook. Hopefully it will work for you!
