Thanks for your help... it fixed sending and receiving.  I am amazed that the installer had no clue how to do this.  You saved me hours sitting on the phone with tech support.

Re: Problems configuring Outlook 2007 with ATT / Yahoo Webmai l!!!

Hello,

 

I got Uverse for the first time about a week 1/2 ago. which didn't work till a few days when a group of two tech came out to fix the outside and the inside issues with the line. after that i found out that my outlook 2007 doesn't work (sending emails).

 

ATT tech told me that they don't support OUTLOOK "it is a microsoft product" i told him that 80% of world uses Microsoft. cut a long story short. i've a fix now for outlook

 

PLEASE FOLLOW THESE STEPS AND YOU WILL BE A HAPPY PERSON.

 

login to your att.net mail account by going to http://att.my.yahoo.com

click on Mail

options on the top right

then select more options from the drop down box

select accounts from left column

select add account from top bar

 

now you can fill the information like

 

name the account (anything you want)

your name (name you want people to see)

Inbox

your password (the password you have for your email address above)

your pop mail server name (e.g. mail.mycompany.com)

 

now save the settings from top bar

 

a window will pop up to ask you to send an email confirmation to the address you selected to verify that you are setting up your account. click on that and check your email for a confirmation code.

 

enter that code from the email into the box on the pop window.

 

this concludes the addition / verification of the account.
