I just opened an ATT DSL service, and my browsing is working but NOT my email. I've googled for SMTP settings for business ATT with no luck. I have set up 995 and 465 ports, smtp as (with ssl required), and still not able to SEND emails :(
I am able to receive BUT NOT SEND
I have my own domain with Network Solutions and my provider is ATT
May someone send me the settings to do this setup in WINDOWS MAIL

*** I am using Windows 7 - Windows Mail - my own domain - ATT business provider ***

You also have to Authenticate.  This is in the Outgoing Server tab, whereas Ports are in the Advanced Tab in Outlook.

Oh, and for that make sure your username is only the email prefix (email address without the "" or such), and use SSL on outgoing port 465. Also check the box for outgoing authentication.
