Can’t send mail with AT&T Internet service

AT&T Internet Service Provider Email Problems

AT&T has restricted outgoing email by directing all SMTP traffic to their servers only. This is to reduce spam, but it┬ámakes it very hard to use Outlook or any other mail program to send email if you have Uverse or DSL thru AT&T. There is a way around this though. Most SMTP servers also accept mail on port 587. Try changing the outgoing mail to port 587. You may get lucky if your email host accepts email on that port. Don’t forget to tell Outlook to use the same name and password as your incoming (POP) server.

  4. Hi James,
    I need more info to guide you. What email program are you using. You will also need your AT&T master account user id and password.
