    I'm hitting the following errors trying to send and receive email.. I talked
    to att support and they 'cleaned up' the servers as some were pointing to
    some old sbc servers. Here are the two errors:

    The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'test', Account:
    '', Server: 'smtp.att.yahoo.com', Protocol: SMTP,
    Port: 465, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10013, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    The connection to the server has failed. Account:
    '', Server: 'pop.att.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3,
    Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Socket Error: 10013, Error Number: 0x800CCC0E

    using yahoomaiil works just fine. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Your settings in Windows Mail are correct. Something is preventing
    WM from connecting to the mail servers. Are you running any third party
    security software (antivirus, anti-malware, anti-spam, firewall, etc.)?

    Since you are using a different server, you can't possibly se the same
