  1. Sometimes the answers to some of the most complicated problems are so simple, that when you find the answer to those problems, you get red faced even when you’re alone, because you’re embarrassed for yourself and not because someone else knows about your stupidity LOL. I much rather find the answer and feel stupid than not knowing the answer though, so it’s all good.

  2. Hey Nick,

    Stubborn can be good, but taking the easy way out and finding someone who already knows they answer can be even better! I’m glad to hear everything is working now.


  3. I couldn’t send or receive emails at all, but it all worked after trying out the solution number one. I can very stubborn at times and I’ve been trying to solve this problem on my own for the past two hours, so I basically wasted two hours for nothing. Of all things I could have done with my time, I wasted it staring at a screen. I’ll be sure to check this website out the next time I have a problem, instead of trying to fix things on my own.

  4. Cheryle,

    I’m assuming you have looked at the troubleshooting steps here to no avail. There have been lots of reports of strange goings on with ATT email recently. If it doesn’t clear up on its own after a few hours I think you are going to have to contact their support people and see if they have anything useful to say.

    I’m sorry I don’t have more helpful information for you.

    5 days ago I tried to configure my outlook 2010 for att.net email. it worked and i got confirmation that i could send and receive through the test messages. today, however, it doesn’t work. i have tried everything. any suggestions?

  6. Elsa,
    Are you using ATT for your email by any chance? I’ve seen numerous reports of this kind of problem with them. Or are you trying to configure your Yahoo Mail account for this? If Yahoo, did you upgrade to Yahoo Mail Plus?

  7. When I test my settings outlook keeps asking me for my password and it does not recognize it. I have checked the settings and they are correct but I can’t seem to pass this step.

  8. Pete,

    This is a stumper. You say that Outlook won’t connect. Are you seeing some specific error message, or is Outlook simply failing to download messages, or something else?

    I have been using Outlook 2010 with my Yahoo accounts for several years. about once a year Outlook stops talking to both inbound and outbound services. In the past I have been able to re-enter the server settings and it starts working again. This time nothing works. My iPhone is still working and my Android tablet is still connected and working plus webmail works. I just can’t make my outlook connect. This happened after I did a sync with my iPhone. None of the settings have changed and they are the same on my other devices. I am stumpted.

  10. Larry,

    I’m not clear on what you are trying to do here. Are you trying to set things up so two people can use the same copy of Outlook? Or are you trying to get a web-based email account (such as Yahoo Mail or Gmail) connected to Outlook? Or am I totally lost!

    Please give me a better idea of what you want to do and I’ll see if I can help.
