Outlook 2010 and Yahoo email sending problems with Uverse


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 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:

Outhoing mail server (SMTP):

You will need your yahoo log in information:  just the part before the 

Then your password.  Be sure to check remember password box

Require logon using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) is not checked.


Click on More settings


Mail account tab.  Need your in the name


Click on Outgoing server tab.  Make sure My outgoing server SMTP requires authentication is checked also Use same settings as my incoming mail server should be checked.  That is it for this tab


Click on Connection tab.  Connect using my local area network (LAN) is checked.  Thats it for this tab.


Click on Advanced tab:  set up as follows:


Incoming server (POP3):  995

check the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)

Outgoing server (SMTP):  465

just below that in the dropdown box for USe the following type of encrypted connection.  Change to SSL


A picture of these settings can be found as follows:  However as I stated.  It is for an address so the incoming and outgoing server information is as I have indicated for yahoo.


good luck!  Hope this helps.
