Hopefully this will help:

I am not sure why they stated to use att.com, but I would use att.net as it is in your e-mail address. I have used this for many customers and it has worked. Other than that, the step-by-step instructions beebeesa provided hopefully got everything working. If not, let us know what error messages you are getting, and we would be glad to assist.

These instructions worked with Live essentials 10 but not with Live v12. It immediately see the pop address as invalid. I get this error message. Format is different for v12.
Unable to send or receive messages for the ATT (my name) account. The host 'pop.att.yahoo,com' could not be found. Please verify that you have entered the server name correctly.

Did you ever get a resolution to this problem? I have the same issue with only one of my email accounts. I have several and all are set up the same in the Windows Live Mail client.
But only one has the problem. All others work just fine.
I have verified all email accounts have the correct and the same settings.
AT&T is no help at all so just wondering if you ever got a resolution.

I am having a similar problem. Trying to add the att.net email account to Windows 10's Live Mail. I have followed the instructions as shown in the email setup instructions. I get an error that says the password is not correct, but I have signed on to the web mail with that same password and it works fine. I receive the following error message:
I have done the configuration multiple times and still get the same error.
Unable to send or receive messages for the Att (xxxxxx) account. An incorrect password was entered. The next time you send or receive messages, you'll be asked to enter your user name and password for this account.

i did this all above before for my first email account in windows live mail with att uverse but uses pop.att.net and smtp.att.net
I changed the ports to 995 and 465 etc
If I try to do a test and send an email to the new account or try to do and test by sending from the new account to my old existing account, everything is going to the OUTBOX of the new account set up and it refuses to accept or go out saying something wrong with my passwordl
would appreciate any help

I, too have the same problem w/ creating Windows Live Mail acct connecting ATT to yahoo email after spending hours, HOURS of going through every configuration known to man? and I know it must be something very simple we're missing . . .
No one can help, i've tried the chat, they send me through a circle . . . unless, I pay someone to figure it out it will not be solved . . . is it Windows? Is it Yahoo? What is it?
