Where do I find the 2013 version?  I am only seeing 2011, which I had on my old laptop and had the same issue.

leesem  and all.  As you can see, new to the forum but not new to AT&T or, rather, my sector of AT&T:  sbcglobal.net

 

I was, really, shocked when I discovered the level 2 people were going to xfer me to a charge service to make the pop settings in Windows Live Email (2011) function a couple of days ago.  (I've been on the road as in 14,000miles from home and been using the web based client).  Ok, fine and good....Give me my email client back.  Went to use it and stuff would come down from the server, but only when I manually requested it.  Say what? (When it's all said and done, it was my error.....my pop settings were fine and good....I had simply failed to check the box in the General tab of the properties of the account "Include this account when receiving mail or syncrhonizing" as I had unchecked it when I left because I knew I did not want to deal with 10,000 emails coming down at once the moment I got back).  Irrespective, it is inexcusable to off shore based idiocy script based replies I got as I was shifted from one tech 2 to another WITHOUT being advised I was being xferred....compelling me to repeat the story over and over and over.

 

Bottom line, here are the pop settings that are working just fine for me here:

 

outgoing:  smtp.sbcglobal.net

incoming:  pop.sbcglobal.net

(correct....leave that yahoo out of there!)

 

On the servers tab:  log on using clear text authentication; at the bottom of this tab check "My server requires authenciation"; click the "Settings" button and put in the data

On the securities tab use 3DES alog

On advanced....I'm pretty sure you can simply click "Use Defaults", but just to be certain:  Outgoing SMTP port is 25 and incoming mail (PoP3) is 110; I have server timeouts set to 1min.  Make your own choice what you want to do with the emails on THEIR servers.  Click apply or whatever.  Should be good to go.

 

Now, with the implementation of the "new and great" web based client it does appear that no matter what I do, the dang thing retains my downloaded emails but places them in the trash bin of the web based client.  Gotta go back to that place from time to time to delete them.

 

I could not find a Windows Live Mail 2013, but I have found Windows Live Mail 2012 at this web site:

 

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-live/essentials  I have not installed this "upgrade".  If it ain't broke, I ain't fixing it.

 

The problems have to do with the fact we out in the hinterlands receive grade d service because we do not have att.net as our email domain is my view.  Since nobody with an iota of intelligence will provide the data I've just supplied it remains impossible to have a cogent converation.  shrug.

 

PS:  I have not tried the auto bot pages of ATT which claim to configure the software for you.  Anybody tried that hoo haw?? http://www.att.com/esupport/article.jsp?sid=KB401568#fbid=B59__uijreC
