Re: Outlook express

You definitely can use Outlook Express for your ATT.net email! First off, your going to need port/server settings:

POP3 (Receiving settings)

pop.att.yahoo.com is the POP3 SERVER
POP port # should be set to 110
SSL (Secure log in) checked

SMTP (Sending settings)

smtp.att.yahoo.com is the SMTP server
SMTP port # should be set to 465
SSL (Secure log in) checked


I'm not quite sure what you mean by 'Need feature that asks reader to respond to receiving e-mail' Can you clarify? :smileyhappy:

and to setup the receipt feature on outlook espress, you may use the ff: steps:

 

1. go to tools --> options.

2. click on the RECEIPTS tab.

3. under "requesting read receipts" category, just click on the box that says "request a read receipt for all sent messages".

4. under "returning read receipts" category, select "notify me for each read receipt request".

 

hopefully this helps. :smileyhappy:
