    I was using bellsouth.net to get my e-mail and they "upgraded" my to
    att.yahoo. I put in all the setting they said to put in and I am still
    getting the following error message when I try to access my mail through
    windows mail:

    Account: 'pop.att.yahoo.com', Server: 'pop.att.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3,
    Server Response: '-ERR popgate unknown command', Port: 995, Secure(SSL):
    Yes, Server Error: 0x800CCC90, Error Number: 0x800CCC18

    Thanks for any help

  3. Go to Tools, Accounts, select that mail account, Properties, Servers.
    Uncheck the box for "Log on using Secure Password Authentication."

    I have same problem on Live Mail and I do not have that SPA option
    checked. Another machine in the same house has no issues with ATT email
    with all same settings except it runs on XP.

    Any other ideas?

  6. Do you get an error message? If so, right-click on your error message,
    copy, then paste it into a reply here.
    We can't do much troubleshooting without the complete error message.

  7. We will be able to evaluate the applicability of that fix once we
    see your complete error message.

    Same as the error message from the OP.

  9. That's not good enough. I need to see the complete, verbatim error message.

    Note: It is customary here to quote the message one is replying to.
