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:

He wants the "return receipt" function.

Ah. I've never heard of that, so that would explain my confusion.

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:
