In this fast changing world of computers and science (and very much the internet), having an email account has become more of a pre-requisite than of condition. For without it, you can lose yourself right back to the Stone Age (as a necessary exaggeration).
Now if you are a long time AT&T account holder and user, you must already know that an email account is automatically created once you configure your AT&T internet service. This provides you with an edge by managing all your existing accounts under the same roof and support.
So let us now take a look at how you can proceed with configuring your AT&T email account on Outlook using, of course, your very own Outlook Settings.
Configuring AT&T email account with Outlook using Outlook Settings
To begin with your Outlook Settings in setting up your AT&T email account on Outlook, you first need to launch the program on your computer.
And once you have it up and running, continue with your Outlook Settings and head for the “File” option on top of the menu bar and then choose “Info” to get “Account Settings” and select the same once more.
In case of Outlook 2007 users, you will instead need to hit on “Tools” as part of your Outlook Settings and then select the same “Account Settings” from the list of options.
Now proceed further with the Outlook Settings by hitting on the “Email” tab so as to create a new account on your Outlook program for your pre-existing AT&T email account.
This is by selecting “New” from your available Outlook Settings and options followed by “Microsoft Exchange, POP3, IMAP or HTTP” then “Next”.
Then check the box beside “Manually configure server settings or additional server types” followed by “Next” to get to “Internet Email” and again continue with “Next”.
Next up, enter your name and email address in its respective fields under “User Information”.
Followed by choosing “POP3”, as part of your Outlook Settings, under “Server Information” from its drop down box.
You need to then enter “pop.att.yahoo.com” as your “Incoming Mail Server” and “smtp.att.yahoo.com” for your “Outgoing Mail Server”.
