Hi naxua,

 

Just wanted to check in on you to see if the information BeeBeeSA provided got everything working. With your change from DSL to U-verse, the server information may have changed and the configuration settings he listed should hopefully get it going again.

Also, if you still notice problems with the smtp.att.yahoo.com, try changing it over to outbound.att.net.

You may, also want to verify your able to login to your webmail by going to mail.yahoo.com.

 

If you are still having issues, let us know the error you are getting, and we would be glad to help.
