Ok, so I've got this new computer featuring Windows 7, and of course Outlook Express is no longer available. So now I've got to deal with Windows Live Mail, and I'm pretty darned confused about how this gets set up and how to migrate my Address Book among other things. I'm trying to put in all the server settings, ports, and so on, but have run into major problems. I think I'm going to have to contact AT & T to get the IP. I checked and wrote down the properties from the Outlook Express including IP's and POP/SMTP #s, and all that, but still have problems getting it to work. I'm getting the following error message from Windows Live Mail:

Unable to send or receive messages for the Att (yank7fan) (1) account. Windows Live Mail couldn't log on to the email server using secure password authentication. Contact your email provider and verify that it supports secure password authentication. To change this logon setting, in the folder list, right-click on the account name, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu. In the Properties dialog, click the Servers tab, and then under Incoming Mail Server, select a logon option.

Server Error: 0x800CCC90
Server Response: -ERR popgate unknown command
Server: 'pop.att.yahoo.com'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC18
Protocol: POP3
Port: 995
Secure(SSL): Yes


and:

Unable to send or receive messages for the yank7fan account. The connection to the server has failed.

Server: '127.0.0.1'
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x800CCC0E
Protocol: POP3
Port: 995
Secure(SSL): Yes
Socket Error: 10061


Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
( This system is 2 days old.)


****Update****
I've played around with changing passwords, server settings, and so on. Still no luck. I removed the accounts and am back to scratch.
I'm getting mail thru my yahoo account, but want the full functionality of the Windows Live Mail.

Follow the instructions here

How do I set up Outlook, Mac Mail, or other popular programs to send and receive my AT&T email?

Happy to report the problem's been taken care of, and Windows Live Mail is operational.
