Using Outlook with Yahoo - sbcglobal.net email

Is it possible to set up Outlook to utilize my sbcglobal.net e mail? I have tried various configurations but are unable to make it work. Thanks

Since you didn't say which configurations you have tried I'll just go with the basics. 

Outlook requires that you create a Secure Mail Key and use that every place Outlook requests a password.  If you've created an SMK before and it doesn't work, delete that one and create a new one.

In addition, if you still have issues you can try using these older servers instead of the att.com servers....

imap.mail.yahoo.com

smtp.mail.yahoo.com

I am using Outlook 2021, not 365

I have also tried web based version

I have mobile outlook and it works fine for both the sbcglobal and yahoo addresses

Don't know what to tell you other than to double check your settings.  I just set up my account on Outlook 2021 and it worked straight away when I used my SMK.

It appears I need a Microsoft365 subscription to use SMK, is that correct?

Encrypt email messages

When you need to protect the privacy of an email message, encrypt it. Encrypting an email message in Outlook means it's converted from readable plain text into scrambled cipher text. Only the recipient who has the private key that matches the public key used to encrypt the message can decipher the message for reading. Any recipient without the corresponding private key, however, sees indecipherable text. Outlook supports two encryption options:

  1. S/MIME encryption - To use S/MIME encryption, the sender and recipient must have a mail application that supports the S/MIME standard. Outlook supports the S/MIME standard

  2. Microsoft 365 Message Encryption (Information Rights Management) - To use Microsoft 365 Message Encryption, the sender must have Microsoft 365 Message Encryption, which is included in the Office 365 Enterprise E3 license.

New Encrypt button and updates to email encryption

With the new Office update, email encryption in Outlook got better.

This is a subscriber-only feature This feature is available only to Microsoft 365 Subscribers for Windows desktop clients.

Weird, I have no idea what how you got to that page.  Follow the info in the link in my first post to create the SMK.  It's all done on att.com.  Then when you add the account to Outlook, just enter the SMK instead of the password.
