At&t uverse imap...is it supported and what are the server settings

I have a referral from a client that liked the way I set all his devices up using imap.
He likes that all devices have the same info and that he only needs to deal with mail once, and it appears the same (read, deleted, repied to, sent items) in all his clients.

The new client has an att.net email address and I've been looking at doing the same for him but after doing some research I've found that AT&T is exactly forthcoming with the imap server info.

Their email support pages give information and only proclaim the ability to use pop.
II called AT&T support and their 1st level support guy ignored my question about imap and rattled off all the pop settings before I could stop him. I asked about imap again and he transferred me to uverse support who said they could not help me but would transfer me to an upper level att support person on a pay basis. They said they would remote control and set it up and I explained all I needed was server name and port info and did not want to pay and they ended up transferring me to a bad extension and I got disconnected.

I'd like to have the info before I go to a new client and look like an idiot, which is a possibility since all his devices are apple based and I'm not an apple guru, but I know how to set up email if I have all the info.

I'm pretty sure the iphone would set it up properly if I selected "yahoo mail" and fed it his credentials, but I'm not sure if thats a possibility when setting it up on the mail client of an imac.

Can anyone help me with some info on this?

Firstly you can automate the process of an account that is on one of the Mail Option in mac
(yahoo is) so you should just be able to enter the credentials  and your away, however this does not always work so here is the IMAP info for an AT&T:

Incoming Server: inbound.att.net
Username:  (full email address)
Password (email password)

Outgoing Server:  outbound.att.net
Username: (full email address)
Password: (email password)

if the outbound server does not work try setting it the same as the incoming
Hope that helps !

I haven't had the opportunity to try on all devices, but I'm sure the part about automating the process by selecting "yahoo mail" and providing the credentials will do the trick.
