sbcglobal.net email access via Outlook
Main problem: I cannot access my sbcglobal.net email address via Outlook. It worked just fine until May 9th, 2020. But stopped completely starting May 10th, 2020. Things I did / verify:
1. Access the address via web - Works fine (that means user + password are correct)
2. Verified the POP3 + SMTP + ports as per https://sbcglobalpasswordesupport.freshdesk.com/support/solutions/articles/42000027682-sbcglobal-email-settings-att-sbcglobal-net-pop3-imap-smtp-settings-2018 - Everything correct. (checked other links, same info)
3. Hit "Test Account Settings" in Outlook: Most of the time I get a "Server Interrupted ..." message; sometime "connected to server but server did not respond"
Note: Every time I hit "Test account Settings" an email comes into my Inbox (checked via web) from "Microsoft Office Outlook Test Message" for "... testing the settings for your POP3 account."
4. I did check above items using two different wireless IPs and one Hotspot (to change the provider) - NO difference.
Can anyone tell me what is the problem? Maybe a tricky setting I am not aware? Does anything changed on the ATT / Yahoo servers recently?
(Clearly is not the internet provider. And clearly not the settings.)
NOTE: While the link above has very good information (content & presentation), it is a SCAMMERS WEBSITE. And so is the phone number they list **********) DO NOT CALL!
