Attempting to setup MS Live Mail but receiving errors

Greetings,
The AT&T email site that I have been using for email is finally getting on my nerves. I can't sort by name any longer, and the ads are very annoying. So, I want to use MS Live Mail. However, once I set up the account, and receive/send, I get the following error.


Unable to send or receive messages for the Sbcglobal (j.k.cerny) account. The connection to the server has failed.

Server: 'pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E
Protocol: POP3
Port: 110
Secure(SSL): No
Socket Error: 10061

I have searched at the yahoo site and the MS Live mail site, but can't find a solution. I would greatly appreciate it if someone who actually understands this could help. Thanks

John

Here is the info from AT&T for setting up your account. Look over their instructions and see if you've missed something.

Set up or verify email client settings for AT&T email

Thank you very much for the link. I had not found that one. The table with the inbound and outbound addresses is exactly what I needed.

Regards,
John
