Task 'xxx@att.net - Receiving' reported error (0x800CCC92) : 'Your e-mail server rejected your login. Verify your user name and password for this account in Account Settings. The server responded: -ERR Server error - Please try again later. [SYS/TEMP]'

Outlook 2016 not receiving emails from ATT on pc or iphone

I am not receiving emails from the merged ATT/Yahoo email account through Outlook 2016 on my pc or on my iPhone or ipad. I am using pop3 inbound.att.net and outbound att.net with ssl and 995 /465. Has anyone else had this issue? What is the solution to this problem?

 

Thanky you.

Re: Outlook 2016 not receiving emails from ATT on pc or iphone

Hi @golfsailorgirl,

 

We apologize about the issues. Are you having issues with a yahoo E-mail or AT&T E-mail? You can try resetting the password to ensure the servers are synced.

It is my ATT email that will not sync on laptop, iPhone or iPad. I have changed passwords on Att site. Verified Pop3 settings, tried uninstalling and reinstalling and still cannot get emails to show up in Outlook2016.

Hi,

 

Is your AT&T E-mail tied to an active internet account? If not, let us know and we can get it connected. One other thing to try is using the IMAP settings to see if that works for your phone and tablets.

Re: Outlook 2016 not receiving emails from ATT on pc or iphone

Yep... havong EXACT same issue. Reset password TWICE and still nothing!  Called ATT Support and got bounced around to three different "overseas" offices until finally being placed on hold for 30+ minutes supposedly with their "Giga Power Connect Tech" office.  In other words... still right where I started with no email through Outlook 2016.  Guess I'll be signing into the att site until I can reach an agent here in the US that I can (1) understand clearly and (2) can resolve this issue without switching me to another Tech support office."  Not happy at all with the CS received from AT&T.

Re: Outlook 2016 not receiving emails from ATT on pc or iphone

My AT&T email is an active AT&T U-verse account this email was originally an AT&T Worldnet email. The IMAP only works on iPad but not on iPhone or laptop. My Pop3 account worked fine until February 1, 2016 around noon CST. Was an upgrade done on the servers?

Solution: Outlook 2016 not receiving emails from ATT on pc or iphone

Microsoft came out with an Important Announcement February 2017 for the
upgrade they recent did that affected us. You need to reconnect Outlook 2016
or Outlook 2013 for uninterrupted email access. They claim this solution is
for all Outlook, Hotmail, Live or MSN accounts it worked for me AT&T as
well. You need to check mail in web browser first. If you do not reconnect
your upgraded email account, you will soon no longer be able to send or
receive Outlook.com emails via your desktop version of Outlook 2016 and 2013
until you reconnect.

* Windows 10 - Go to Control Panel in search box type"mail"
* Click on Microsoft Outlook 2016 and open general tab add new profile
* Then when you open Outlook go account settings and click on change
folder and link your new pst file to your email.



This worked for me after two week of no email.
