Outlook 2010 and Yahoo email sending problems with Uverse
I use Outlook 2010 with Windows Home Premium. I recently had a problem where Outlook stopped sending emails. I could recieve fine but it would not send. It took a lot of time to figure out the simple solution, but got it resolved. By the way, save yourself some time. Don't talk to tech support people overseas. Go to account retention for Uverse and get someone in the US. Just note to self for future problems. Fixed it in about 20 minutes total versus the previous 16 hours over 3 days spent on the phone overseas and in att support chat.
Here is a link to your settings. These settings are good as published only for an att.net email account. But part of it is correct. You will need to have the inbound and outbound server changed. First write this down:
Incoming mail server: pop.mail.yahoo.com
Outhoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.mail.yahoo.com
You will need your yahoo log in information: just the part before the @yahoo.com
Then your password. Be sure to check remember password box
Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) is not checked.
