Outlook Outgoing mail server setup (ATT & Road Runner)
Posted on 2010-09-01
I have an intersting problem and hope someone can help me figure it out. I am trying to setup outlook to receive mail from my RoadRunner account but send mail on an ATT Uverse account with yahoo. I thought this would be straight forward but I can't get it to work. Here are the outlook 2007 settings.
incoming server: pop-server.austin.rr.com
outgoing server: smtp.att.yahoo.com
Loging information is my login for my Road Runner account.
Under More Settings...
Outgoing Server Tab - I checked "my outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication
Radio button for "Log on using" is enabled
User Name and password are my ATT account.
Advanced Tab - Incoming server is set to port 110 for Road Runner
Advanced Tab - Outgoing server is set to port 465 for ATT
Use the following type of encrypted connection = None
If I hit the "test account Settings" button I am successful logging into Road Runner because I get the green check mark for "log onto incoming mail server (pop3). However I get the red X for "Send test e-mail message"
What am I doing wrong? In theory I should be able to receive on one and send on the other. I recently switched from RR to ATT and need to get to my RR account so I can send a message about my address change. Because I am no longer connected to RR I can't access their sending server according to their tech support team so I must use ATT to send.
If I configure an account using all ATT settings everything works for send and receive.
