    #1 - No one from the forum is going to phone - this is not MS Support

    #2 - Start by describing what the problem is with complete details so that someone reading this has a clue as to where to being. Info should include:

    - what steps you're,
    - type (POP, Imap etc) of email account your trying to add
    - any error messages encountered exactly as displayed on your system without any paraphrasing

    #3 - Have you check the ATT website to ensure that you are using the correct settings? If not, that would be the first place to start if things aren't working

  • Mail server settings
    Domain Protocol type SMTP server / port
    att.net POP3 outbound.att.net / 465
    IMAP smtp.mail.att.net / 465 or 587
    bellsouth.net POP3 outbound.att.net / 465

    If your are using POP3 or IMAP , both settings are here. so set the account as per this . you will definitely save your time
