Re: adding ATT email on Samsung Captivate

Depending on the origin of the att.net account you may have to enter it manually.

 

For example if it was/is a former worldnet account you neeed to change the incoming address to ipostoffice.worldnet.att.net port 995 SSL and the outgoing to imailhost.att.net port 465.  SSL

 

There is a more complete list as an addition to the tutorial page posted above under advanced settings. Hope that helps

Re: adding ATT email on Samsung Captivate

Hello,

The best way and also very fun way to get your email on your Samsung Captivate is by downloading the application for your Android device at m.yahoo.com. There you will be able to have the same functionality you would if it was added to your email accounts.

Thank you.
