    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

    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.
