Try this - if it doesn't work you might have to google other settings:
AT&T has changed their POP3 settings as Follows
- Open your email client program.
- Select Tools
- Select Accounts
- Highlight Your Email Account
- Select Properties on right
- Locate the email account settings for your particular client.
- Change the POP server to pop.att.yahoo.com.
- Change the SMTP server to smtp.att.yahoo.com.
- Select Advanced Tab
- Check the option labeled Use an encrypted connection (SSL) and change the SMTP port to 465.
- Check the option labeled Use an encrypted connection (SSL) and change the POP3 port to 995.
- Confirm the above settings then click OK.
in addition to sandie52's suggestion I recommend a websearch using:
"(service provider) mobile email setup"
service provider in your case being AT&T
this should bring up tons of results for settings you can try, the problem being that yahoo has absorbed a lot of other email providers and the server settings are all over the place
Thank you this worked!!!!
let you know it never ends like my divorce ...just kidding that is a fragment of my imagination like when he said i do
Be advised that if your AT&T e-mail account was established after June 2011 it is not POP'able. I read this while trying to setup our local Food Bank e-mail. You can verify this as I may have it wrong, but that is how I understood the written information on the AT&T support site. I have a very old Prodigy/Yahoo/AT&T e-mail that is now an AT&T managed account and it is POP'able. When I established a new AT&T e-mail account for the Food Bank it would not respond to any setup attempts to POP it to other devices.
I have been using my nook color for awhile and I am now setting up the email for att.net. Upon searching with a friend of mine HIGH AND LOW, we found the answer. Go to ATT.NET WEBSITE and go under support for email settings. or you can highlight and click on the link and you will find the settings you need. Remember when changing the settings on your nook to type in the proper fields for the server, the port and security.
