Outlook Email setting problems since Uverse switch


Outlook Email setting problems since Uverse switch

My computer and phones were changed to Uverse plan this morning.  Ever since then my Outlook receives emails but won't allow me to send any.  Mine is an old Bellsouth.net account with incoming settings of pop.bellsouth.net, port 110 (which still works) and outgoing settings of mail.bellsouth.net, port 25 (which does NOT work since Uverse setup)  I don't think I should have to pay an ATT tech to fix this problem since it didn't start until they set up Uverse.  My business depends on being able to send emails and now it's out for a full day!!  That can add up to lots of $$$.  I've tried the settings they suggest for att.net customers but mine (as I said before) is not a att.net account name so it isn't working.  I've also tried the yahoo settings and those don't work either.  Anybody out there have a suggestion?

@MasterYor, I'm sorry that TexasGuy's 2 year old link no longer functions; however it probably gave outdated information anyway.  You can try this one:
