Merry Christmas Experts,
Santa needs your help tonight. He's been trying to set up Outlook 2010 as default email rather than what I'm using with Yahoo.com with no luck

Here's my settings:
Your name: Mickey Mouse
Email address: Mickey_Mouse@bellsouth.net
Password: Minnie
Retype password: Minnie

Manually configure server settings:
Server information:
Account type: Pop3
Incoming mail server: pop.att.yahoo.com
Outgoing mail server: smtp.att.yahoo.com

User Name: Mickey_Mouse
Password: Minnie

Outgoing server: My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication is checked as well as use the same settings as my incoming mail server

Incoming server (POP3) port number 995
This server requires an encrytpted connection (SSL) is checked
Outgoing server (SMPT) 465

What I get are erros:
Log onto incoming mail server (POP3): Your e-mail server rejected your logi, Incorrect username or password
Cannot find the email server

I know my user name and password have been entered in correctly.

Try these settings:


    Yahoo! Mail SMTP server address: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
    Yahoo! Mail SMTP user name: Your full Yahoo! Mail email address (including "@yahoo.com")
    Yahoo! Mail SMTP password: Your Yahoo! Mail password
    Yahoo! Mail SMTP port: 465
    Yahoo! Mail SMTP TLS/SSL required: yes

Especially, try the different smtp server.

Same error when I select My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication - use same settings as my incoming mail server. The server was interrupted

My incoming test has no errors though. This is strange for all I'm trying to do is switch to Outlook 2010. Firewall? Antivirus?

Folks,
What I am experiencing is not an Outlook problem but instead an AT&T problem.
Follow the thread at:

We are all beating a dead horse here - but thanks.
