Here is the exact message: < The POP server "pop.att.yahoo.com" rejected the password for user "XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXX" Please re-enter your password, or cancel.> My mail goes offline immediately upon opening it up. I get this message, put in the password and then another box opens for my next screen name. (I have 4) and then just keeps cycling through the 4 names as I keep entering the password. I have tried all 3 versions of my password (in case I have it wrong) and none work. It just keeps cycling through and will not allow me to send mail.
Problem is not fixed.
I can access mail through the web and believe it shows mail that has come in that does not show up when I view all 4 mailboxes on my native Mac mail.
I have to reset my mail accounts. What exactly do I put in for "Incoming Mail Server" ? Is that my email address that I had just entered in the step before this one?
Didn't work. I tried to set up my first email and got this:
Here is the response I got: <Trying to log into the POP server “pop.att.yahoo.com” has failed. Please make sure the username and password are correct. If you continue, you may not be able to receive any email.>
I have tried all combos of my user name and password and nothing is working.
Yes. It's AT&T which is Yahoo.
I need to start over. I put in the wrong info for incoming. How do I start this up again to open my mail account?
The box disappeared so I don't have anything up on the screen now. How do I get back to the mail set up?
Yes, that got me back to the mail set up but now I'm back to the same problem.
<Trying to log into the POP server “pop.mail.yahoo.com” has failed. Please make sure the username and password are correct. If you continue, you may not be able to receive any email.>
When I put in smtp.mail.yahoo.com for incoming, it moved forward.
When I open mail the "preferences" is not highlighted. I can't access it.
I close mail. Open it, preferences is not highlighted, nor is anything else except for "services"
