I just updated to Windows 8.1 and IE 11 is part of that. I would like to switch my primary email account from att.yahoo to windows Live Mail so how do I do this. Setup instructions are not clear]I'm not really sure what to use as my email address or password or exactly what the servers are: Do I use ATT Account user name and password or my ATT mail (yahoo alias) user name and password? I think the servers are pop.att.com and smtp.att.yahoo.com but I've tried several different combinations and none of them work. I think there are several problems with compatibility of IE 11 and some other applications.

Just checking up on your post. I see Beebeesa shared a great step-by-step solution to configure your att email on Windows Live mail. Were you able to get Windows Live to work using these steps?

I too have the same problem. The setup up given is not consistant with the Live 2012 essentials format.
Unable to send or receive messages for the ATT (name) account. The host 'pop.att.yahoo,com' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0D
Socket Error: 11004
