Getting this:

The server does not support a SSL connection. Account: 'pop.att.yahoo.com', Server: 'smtp.att.yahoo.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '250 8BITMIME', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 250, Error Number: 0x800CCC7D

It's been an ongoing problem for about 2 weeks now. Sometimes it works, sometimes I get the above error message.

My settings:

Incoming mail: POP3

Outgoing mail: smtp

port #'s : smtp : 465
POP3: 995

both boxes (This server requires a secure connection (SSL) are checked.

I'm running AVG and the Commodo Firewall, and have unchecked the scan email box. Should I uncheck the Server requires a secure connection boxes?

Can anyone help??? :thumbsup:

Yes, uncheck This server requires a secure connection boxes. See if that resolves your issue.
