Re: Apple Mail will not work without webmail login

Thanks for responding to my post.
I have already had the password reset by ATT. I then go in with the reset password to change the password (to my own password) and the same thing happens.
I do not have another computer with my Apple Mail settings, but nothing has changed on my computer from the day Mail was working until it suddenly stopped.
I am sorry to say the representatives I have spoken to at the telephone numbers you supply seem not to have any idea what to do about this.
I have copied the log from Mail's "Connection Doctor." The problem seems to be that unless I have logged into webmail first, I get this
READ Mar 01 06:38:01.610 [kCFStreamSocketSecurityLevelNegotiatedSSL] -- hostop.att.yahoo.com -- port:995 -- socket:0x115d78ef0 -- thread:0x115defec0
-ERR [AUTH] invalid user/password
If I log into webmail, my user name and password are accepted and maildrop works.
