Thank you. AT&T has recently changed some of their security settings for email. Please go to and login. Click on the gear in the upper right hand corner, then account info and then security. You'll need to select "allow apps that use less secure sign in". The Kindle Fire OS and their SILK browser are considered to be "less secure". It is possible that once you turn that on, to allow access, the problem will be resolved. However, I just finished working with another client who ended up having to turn off two step verification as well.
