Gud day sir my emaill recieve a lootery wining no. that came from u.k and he told to his letter that i win $250,000 doolar, my question is thats its true ??? yahoo messenger have any lottery promotion???...


Do not believe such mails. I don't know how they do this. But as far as i have read from newspapers and saw in news,it is said that people imposing as manager of banks or some other lotteries will send you mail to deposit some amount and get the lottery amount. When they get the money,they escape with it.

Excerpt from uk national lottery website:
These scams work in two ways:
Method 1: Persuade the victim to part with personal information to allow the scammers to carry out identity theft.
Method 2: Persuade the victim to part with money as an upfront payment in order to release a winning lottery prize which does not exist.

Another excerpt from Uk national lottery website:
  • If the email says 'Winning Notification' or 'Lottery Sweep Stake' in the text, the email you've received is not from The National Lottery;
  • We don't tell players how much they've won in an email;
  • We don't ask for any personal information like name, address or bank details in an email.
There is no need to contact us if you have received a lottery-related scam (fraudulent) email.

Is this a real winning or is it a scam?


Beware! Its a scam. Do NOT give out any personal information. If you do, they (the senders) will probably ask you to deposit a small fee so they can send you the prize money. After receiving your cash they will move away!
Just send this email to your spam folder.
Just for your information, I also received one of these.
Thank you.

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
