can't update outlook


can't update outlook

I use Outlook to read my mail.  In November I received an email from AT&T that I needed to update my settings or I will no longer be able to use Outlook.  I clicked on the link provided and launched the AT&T Email Updater.  The updater said:


"AT&T Email Updater has not found any email account that require an update.

This could happen if:

  1. All your email accounts already comply with AT&T settings.
  2. You don't have any email client accounts configured (ex. Outlook or Outlook Express)."

Outook no longer works to check my mail.

Re: can't update outlook

Have you attempted to manually change the settings?


The new settings, found here, indicate the following:


  • Incoming (POP3) server: on port 995
  • Outgoing (SMTP) servier: on porn 465
  • SSL Required

Thank you for you reply.  When I manually tried to update the settings, I tested it and received the following error messages:


Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Cannot find the e-mail server. Verify the server information in your account properties.


Send test e-mail message: Cannot find the e-mail server. Verify the server information in your account properties.
