I know my email address and I have a site for att.net that has it, but I don't know where to go to change the password ***** this
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I have tried my password ***** att on the pop up, but it rejects it

OK so you can access your email using att.net homepage am i correct,if so when you click on the email option in the webpage does it go straight to your email inbox or to the user name & password *****?

you are correct. if I use my att website, the email process works fine.
But when I try to access my email through Microsoft Office, I get the request for the password, which is rejected every time

OK in that case may i remote access to your computer and check the issue directly and do the necessary.

It has to be a problem with Outlook, do I change my password ***** the website (Think I can do that).. will that work?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
John, I'm sorry, I'm not comfortable with remote access, plus there is an additional cost that I would prefer to not incur
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I'd like to try and resolve it with your help first

I understand.

in the att.net email page can you see a settings in it which most likely will be on the top left or right.
