Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

Whatever combination of server name (pop.att.yahoo.com or pop.sbcglobal.net for instance) and whatever combination of ports (25, 995 for instance) I cannot make my Windows Live Mail email client to work. The sane is true for any other email client of course. Can you help please. Thank you.

Are you sure the firewall (or any other security software) isn't blocking it? If no then the problem is in Live Mail itself.  Usually the only reliable way to fix Live mail for me has been to backup all accounts and mails, completely uninstall it, wipe all remaining folders, reinstall it and manually import all the backups -  a long process that hasn't always worked. You should switch mail programs - i now use only the mail section of Opera; you could use Thunderbird or Eudora.

    Would you please tell me what server names and ports you are using with you email client. Thank you

  • Azrael SRL May 12, 2010

    Yahoo Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.mail.yahoo.com (port 110)
    Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)
    and 
    Gmail Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - pop.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 995)
    Gmail Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.gmail.com (SSL enabled, port 465)
     Both work perfectly with Opera Mail.
    Never heard of sbcglobal so i can't help you with it.

    Thank you. I have made progress using your parameters. Now I can receive but not send email.

    If you are using a router make sure all ports are correctly forwarded.

Accessing my bellsouth email account on samsung galaxy


Set your mail settings as below, but do it while you're connected to WiFi rather than cellular data.

Incoming mail server type: POP3
Incoming (POP): pop.att.yahoo.com
Incoming User Name: Full AT&T email address, including domain (e.g. yourname @ bellsouth.net, but without the spaces... the forum won't let me type it correctly because I'm new here)
Incoming mail port #: 995, secure connection (SSL) checked

Outgoing (SMTP): smtp.att.yahoo.com, with authentication (same user and password as POP)
Outgoing User Name: Full AT&T email address, including domain (e.g. yourname @ bellsouth.net)
Outgoing mail port # 465, secure connection (SSL) checked

The message could not be sent because the server rejected the sender's e-mail address. The sender's e-mail address was 'fkb@ameritech.net'. Subject '', Account: 'pop.attyahoo.com', Server:...


One problem is that the incoming (POP) mail server shown in the error message appears to be incorrect. The server address should be "pop.att.yahoo.com" (with a period between "att" and "yahoo"). The incorrect mail server address may interfere with authentication of the sender's email address, which is needed before the outgoing message is sent.

The "530 authentication" message indicates your outgoing (SMTP) server likely requires "server authentication". Also, the "Port 25" message indicates your email program is currently trying to send via Port 25, with no SSL; but Ameritech/Yahoo accounts appears to use Port 465 with SSL enabled.

See more on sever settings for "ameritech.net" users:

https://motorola-global-portal.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61941/~/i886---at%26t,-bellsouth,-sbcglobal,-ameritech-email-settings

I would suggest you check the settings for your Ameritech email account in your email program. You may need to correct several settings. The steps to access account settings are somewhat different for various email programs (Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird, etc.). You should be able to find guidance in the "help" section of your email program.

Can receive but can't send email


I can receive but can't send mail using my POP mail client. Why? If you're able to receive but unable to send mail using your POP mail client (such as Outlook), please review the possible trouble areas below.
SMTP Server
In the fight against unsolicited commercial email (spam), some Internet service providers require their subscribers to send mail through the ISP's own SMTP servers. If you experience problems sending email, please contact your ISP to determine if it requires different SMTP server settings. You will need to use the ISP's SMTP server in place of Yahoo!'s SMTP server when configuring your POP mail client.
The following is a partial list of ISPs that require you to use their SMTP servers. If your ISP is among them, try replacing the Yahoo! SMTP server with the ISP server in your POP mail client settings, or consult the ISP's help files. (Learn more about configuring your client.) If your ISP does not appear in the list below, please contact your ISP directly for more information.
MSN smtp.email.msn.com NetZero smtp.netzero.net Verizon outgoing.verizon.net Earthlink/MindSpring Please visit its help pages AT&T Please visit its help pages Bell Sympatico Please visit its help pages SBC See below SBC Your SMTP settings will vary based on your account setup. Choose the SMTP setting that corresponds to the email address most like the one provided to you by your ISP.
you@ameritech.net smtp.ameritech.yahoo.com you@flash.net smtp.flash.yahoo.com you@nvbell.net smtp.nvbell.yahoo.com you@pacbell.net smtp.pacbell.yahoo.com you@prodigy.net smtp.prodigy.yahoo.com you@sbcglobal.net smtp.sbcglobal.yahoo.com you@snet.net smtp.snet.yahoo.com you@swbell.net smtp.swbell.yahoo.com you@wans.net smtp.wans.yahoo.com For more information about AT&T's SMTP requirements, please visit the AT&T help center or contact AT&T DSL support at 877-SBC-DSL5 (877-722-3755) or AT&T DIAL support at 866-SBC-DIAL (866-722-3425).
SMTP Port
If you have adjusted your SMTP server, and you're still experiencing a problem, you may need to use an alternate port. In an attempt to control spam, some Internet service providers now block port 25, which means you may need to use port 587 when sending email via Yahoo!'s SMTP server. Learn how to change ports.
Antivirus Protection
If you have Norton AntiVirus enabled on your computer, you may have to make configuration adjustments to use Outlook or Outlook Express. For more information, visit the Symantec web site.
Authentication
The Yahoo! SMTP server requires authentication. Learn more.

Just received new Att email account with U-verse signup. Trying to set up email thru Outlook 2000. Need to know the ''Incoming mai (POP3)'' name and ''Outgoing mail (SMTP)'' name. Please assist. Email...


If you looking for POP3 SMTP Mail Servers then it would be
AT&T WorldNet incoming mail server: postoffice.worldnet.att.net
AT&T WorldNet outgoing mail server: mailhost.worldnet.att.net
or
incoming mail (POP3) -> ipostoffice.worldnet.att.net

Just for POP, I think should be somethinnd like
MemberID@att.net
or
pop.att.yahoo.com

Incoming Mail Server (POP3):
Host Name: ipostoffice.worldnet.att.net:995
User Name: your_username@worldnet.att.net

Good luck
