Switched from DSL to Uverse (9-23-13) and have not been able to send or receive email. When I bring windows mail up, I get a small "windows security" window asking me to log on. When I do, the same log on window reappears. I've tried changing passwords, but that hasn't helped. I thought I could to my email through att.yahoo, but when I log into that site, a window appears saying login invalid. I'm at wits end. Tried calling ATT and got a voice machine who changed my password and that didn't work. Kept getting invaid messages.

I get a 0x80040102 error (The requested operation cannot be performed on this account) when receiving att.net e-mail using Outlook 2013. I followed the instructions on the earlier post. How can I eliminate such error?

If you are using MS Outlook, 2003, 2007, 2010 or 2013 follow the steps in this article. Step 16 is an important one to check

I am new to the community, but I am also having problems with my email. I can access my account and email via the web, but all of a sudden, my Thunderbird account is rejecting the password. That is the exact same one that I use to access it on the web. I have not changed any settings. This is frustrating. Is there a solution? Please advise.

I'm sorry you're experiencing this issue. I'm not too familiar with the Thunderbird email client but, I'll be glad to research why this is happening.
What version of Thunderbird are you using? Is it Thunderbird 5, 13, 17? Have you changed the email password recently? Also, do any other email clients give out the same error message (Ex: iPhone/Android Mail app, Outlook, Mac Mail, etc.)?

Also, if the setting that BeeBeeSA provided do not work, you can use
inbound.att.net instead of pop.att.yahoo.com
outbound.att.net instead of smtp.att.yahoo.com

Setting up ATT email on Outlook and other email clients can be painful. They seem to change settings on the back end and w/out notice and what works on one PC or email client won't work on another.
Here is what works for one of my clients running Windows & with MS Office versikons 2013 and 2007 running Uverse and ATT's business class email:
Incoming mail server: webmail2.attbizclassemail.com
Outgoing mail server: 126.96.36.199
POP SSL Port: 993
SMTP SSL Port 465
The POP (incoming mail) setting used to be webmail.attbizclassemail.com
SMTP (outgoing) used to be smtp.bizclassemail.com
It took at least an hour or two on the phone and no small amount of frustration to find the right person at ATT support to pass that along to me. Good luck!
