Have IMAP Server Settings Changed for SBCGlobal?
I use several Windows computers in a given day. On each I access sbcglobal.net e-mail via the most recent revision of Outlook client--which is to say I don't use webmail. All of these Windows computers are in various locations (home, office, church, etc.) where internet connectivity is assured.
Starting last week all of my instances of Outlook report that they can no longer fetch or send sbcglobal.net e-mail. This situation has persisted for a week. My iPhone also reported that it cannot fetch my mail. However, I also have these Outlook clients configured to simultaneously fetch IMAP mail from other (work-related) servers. These non-ATT e-mail accounts work fine in Outlook. The problem is specific to my SBCGlobal mail.
This is typical of what Outlook client reports when a send/receive fails:
"Outlook cannot synchronize subscribed folders for [email scrubbed]. Error: Cannot connect to the server. If you continue to receive this message..."
Have IMAP settings for sbcglobal.net changed?
In an effort to fix all this, I manually changed my e-mail password using a web version of AT&T's e-mail, reconfigured all of the server/authentication settings on all of these Outlook-equipped computers. All Outlook instances still decline to send or fetch e-mail.
However, I can read my SBCGlobal e-mail on ATT's webmail utility.
What's up with this crash of my IMAP e-mail? All of the instances of Outlook successfully used the new passkey form of ATT's passwords before things locked up last week.
FWIW, after I changed my password using webmail, and thereafter refreshed my iOS e-mail utility for the revised password, I can now get my sbcglobal e-mail on my iPhone, but only on my iPhone or using ATT's webmail in a browser like Firefox.
