The majority of business class emails are configured with email clients. This also includes SBCGlobal email, which is widely used with email clients with the most popular being MS Outlook 2010. There is nothing wrong with using a business class email with an email client, but when it starts giving problems, then the whole situation changes.
Many SBCGlobal email users who have configured their email account on MS Outlook 2010 in Windows 7 are facing issues. Such issues mostly occur when people add set up their email account in the wrong way. It is important for users to identify as to what the right settings are because chances are that the issue lies with the wrong settings.
If SBCGlobal email was configured with MS Outlook 2010 using a POP server, then the value in the incoming server will be ‘pop.att.yahoo.com’ and the port number will be ‘995’ (incoming) and 465 (outgoing). If using SMTP server, then the value to be entered is ‘smtp.att.yahoo.com’. These settings work perfectly on normal days, but it has started to give problems recently. When the same settings were performed in other versions of MS Outlook, then those worked like a charm.
Users are not sure as to what has caused the issue with SBCGlobal email configured with MS Outlook 2010. Online forums are filled with complaints of the users, but nothing significant has been found in terms of the solution as of now. Some email experts have tried to provide solution in which they said that by changing the incoming POP server in the account settings to ‘pop.mail.yahoo.com’ and changing the outgoing server to ‘smtp.mail.yahoo.com’ will fix the problem, but they will have to click on ‘More Settings’ followed by ‘Outgoing server’ tab as well.
When they do so, they will come across an option named ‘My Outgoing Server Requires Authentication’ that needs to be selected. After that, they need to enter SBCGlobal email password in the option named ‘Log on using’.
After that, they need to click on ‘Advanced’ tab followed by selecting ‘This server needs an encrypted connection (SSL)’. When it comes to the incoming and outgoing port number, then the values that would come are ‘995’ and ‘25’ respectively. Once these values have been added, users will have to select ‘OK’. With this, MS Outlook 2010 and SBCGlobal email servers will start communicating with each other.
The aforementioned settings will fix the issue. Problems can surface anytime in an email service, especially when it is being used with an email client. But, there is no need to worry as there is no email issue that can’t be fixed, so you just need to follow the right steps and enter the right values while configuring SBCGlobal email with MS Outlook 2010 in order to ensure the functionality of your email account.
If you have tried all sorts of things, yet the problem remains to be persistent, then you need to get in touch with SBCGlobal Support, as they can help fix the above discussed or any other issue in a comprehensive manner.
