We're here to help get your e-mail setup, straub1007!
Thank you for the great link you provided, JefferMC!
To put it more in context, in order to login to your e-mail in Outlook 2016, you will need to Create a Secure Mail Key. This is a security measure that encrypts your password, and you are able to create and manage it via myAT&T.
You will then use your Secure Mail Key as your password when logging into any 3rd Party programs or applications that are not Open Authentication compatible, while your login to any AT&T sites will stay the same.
If you are needing the information for server settings, we suggest using IMAP for your 3rd Party e-mail clients.
Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you for being a part of our AT&T Community!

The link above worked somewhat. However, I am not receiving incoming emails unless I goto the Outlook FILTER EMAIL setting and select "Sent to me or CC me". Then the incoming emails show up, but they go away if I switch email folders and go back to Inbox. Note: I do not have this problem in setting up my Bellsouth Email accoung on my iPhone or iPAD (no Outlook). Could someone help explain what may be happening on my Windows PC (Windows 10) and using Outlook 2016 ?

If this problem keeps happening, then you might want to seek help from Microsoft, as it is their program could be malfunctioning.
