robert1000 - You do not need to change ISPs. Just decouple the e-mail -

Open a gmail account. In gmail download your stuff from att. In att settings - forward mail to gmail. Set up gmail in outlook.

Is the account set up as a webmail account or a POP account?

 

Is it not accepting your password?

 

What "resolve tool" are you referring to, is it the Mr. FixIt tool? If so, try uninstalling the FixIt tool and reinstalling it. When you go to reinstall right click on the file and choose "run as administrator".

Is it not accepting passwords?

 

If so, another fix I found was to reset your Winsock Catalog.

 

Go to your "Start Menu" ---> "Accessories", find the icon for "Command Prompt". Right click the icon and choose "Run As Administrator"

 

When the command Prompt window opens, type the following:  netsh winsock reset catalog 

then hit "Enter", then reboot.

Seriously, you're going to switch because you can't get a 7 year old mail program to work?

 

Check the support site here. Also according to that website if you signed up after 6/11/11 you will not be able to use a mail client, only your online email account.

 

 

That being said, I was just able to add my new email account to Outlook, but I'm using Outlook 2010.

And how is that going to fix the OP problem?  Really need to quit telling people to open up a gmail account and forward their ATT email to it, vs. just explaining to them how they can make Outlook to work with @att.net email accounts.

If you would have gone to microsoft.com and did a search on the error, you would have gotten these results http://search.microsoft.com/en-us/results.aspx?form=MSHOME&setlang=en-us&q=outlook%202007%20error%20...

I see it as leading people to the competition, not helping them.  And no, they are not trapped or feel desperate.  What you have, is those that have difficulty trying to setup their email accounts with Outlook, without knowing how to do the setup, which are really easy to find and understand.

 

Telling them to go setup a gmail account and forward all of their att.net email actually makes the problem harder, not easier.

Re: Microsoft Outlook

gregzoll_1 - From my perspective I am preventing them from going to he competition. They are threatening to leave the paying part because they have a problem with the free part.

Some may like it, some may not. They can choose how to do it.

My choice includes - sbcglobal.net, 2x att.net, me.com & gmail.com

Re: Microsoft Outlook

I'm having a challenge with setting up my outlook and outlook express account as well.  I'm receiving emails, but not able to send out.  I also have Microsoft 2007 and XP.  The error messages states that my server has unexpectedly terminated the connection.  Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or long period of inactivity.  Protocol SMTP, Port 465, Secure (SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F.  I checked my server and it works find with other carriers, but having a challenge with this carrier.  Also, checked with hosting and server admin and this isn't the issue because I can send and receive emails on the server.  Please advise on what actions I can take.

Re: Microsoft Outlook

Does this exact same system with this same configuation work from another network?

 

In my experience, the most likely cause for this is that the e-mail address and/or password has an error.  Sometimes it's a small error in the e-mail address, but usually in the password (which you can't see to verify).
