I'm having a problem getting Outlook 2007 to work with both my ATT email account and my Yahoo mail account. I have Yahoo mail plus. I can receive from both in Outlook, but send from neither. I would appreciate your help. I haven't been able to find a solution anywhere.

Here is the error.
Sending reported error (0x80042106) The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending server.

Here are my settings.

AT&T Account
Incoming server: pop.att.yahoo.com
Outgoing server: smtp.att.yahoo.com
My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication - Yes
Use sane settings as my incoming mail server - Yes
Incoming server (POP3): 995
This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) - Yes
Outgoing server (SMTP): 465
Use the following type of encrypted connection - SSL

Yahoo Mail Account
Incoming server: pop.att.yahoo.com
Outgoing server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com - This is the only difference between the two.
My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication - Yes
Use sane settings as my incoming mail server - Yes
Incoming server (POP3): 995
This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL) - Yes
Outgoing server (SMTP): 465
Use the following type of encrypted connection - SSL

Thanks in advance for the help.

Try AT&T server addresses as below:
pop.mail.yahoo.com
smtp.mail.yahoo.com

---OR---
inbound.att.net
outbound.att.net
(requires authentication)

Yahoo Mail POP server settings

    Incoming mail (POP3) server - pop.mail.yahoo.com.
    Incoming port (requires SSL) - 995.
    Outgoing mail (SMTP) server - smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
    Outgoing port (requires SSL/TLS) - 465, 587, or 25.
    - It's necessary to enable SSL or TLS for the outgoing port.
    Requires authentication (Email and password) - Yes.
    Email address - Your Yahoo Mail address (user@domain.com.)
    Password - Your Yahoo Mail password.

I think it is working okay now. Yahoo mail did not have SSL enabled. As soon as I enabled it, I could send Yahoo mail.
I changed the settings on AT&T mail to the first recommendation by n_swapnil. It seems to work, but I haven't verified it yet.
