Email Changes From AT&T

AT&T Yahoo! service is making some security improvements and these changes will affect members who send or receive email from a desktop or mobile client program, such as Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Outlook Express, Eudora, Apple Mail, or Thunderbird.

You can download the AT&T Self Support Tool and select Cannot send/receive email from the Self Support Tool Main Interface to run an email settings check. When prompted to change your email settings, select Yes.

Manual settings are as follows:

  • Change the POP server to pop.att.yahoo.com.
  • Change the SMTP server to smtp.att.yahoo.com.
  • Check the option labeled Use an encrypted connection (SSL) and change the POP3 port to 995.
  • Check the option labeled Use an encrypted connection (SSL) and change the SMTP port to 465.

For more information, use the following links: POP3 and SMTP settings, Outlook settings, Server settings.
