Are you not being able to access SBCGlobal email properly after configuring it with Windows Live Mail? If yes, then you need to follow the steps that are given in the post below in order to fix the problem.
A number of SBCGlobal email users have configured their email accounts with Windows Live Mail because it is easier to access the email account this way. However, this whole configuration of the email process could become a big headache if problems start to appear. This is exactly what has happened with SBCGlobal email, as many users who have configured their email accounts with Windows Live mail are not able to send emails from their Live mail using SBCGlobal email.
This is not a rare problem as many users are facing this as you read this post. On several different PCs, SBCGlobal email account stopped responding to the server through Live Mail. The problem is solved after configuring Windows Live Mail with Hotmail, but what about if someone wants to use SBCGlobal email on Windows Live Mail.
Now, coming to the solutions to the problem, which goes like this. The first thing that experts are going to ask is whether or not you have changed SMTP and POP to new settings. The new POP3 setting is ‘inbound.att.net’ and SMTP is ‘outbound.att.net’. If you are still using att.yahoo.net or something like that, then that is not going to work. You need to find the right settings, and only then, you could expect SBCGlobal email to work under Windows Live Mail.
- Incoming email server: pop.att.yahoo.com
- Outgoing email server: smtp.att.yahoo.com
- Incoming email port: 995
- Outgoing email port: 465
With this, the problem is going to get resolved and you will be able to send or receive emails in your SBCGlobal email that is configured with Windows Live Mail. In case, the problem doesn’t fix, then you will have to try a new set of settings, which are as below:
You need to enter ‘inbound.att.net’ and ‘outbound.att.net’ for POP and SMTP server names. Besides these, all other settings will remain the same. Along with that, you need to make sure that SSL encryption should be enabled because you don’t want your classified information getting in the hands of someone who you don’t want to share that information within the first place.
