    I had a bit of trouble setting up my AT&T email address because the default settings it had were for Yahoo! accounts and it did not work for my att.net account.

    However I messed with it and these are the proper settings if anyone else has the same problem:

    login: youremail@att.net
    password: your password

    Email type: POP
    POP Server: pop.att.yahoo.com
    Security type: SSL
    Port: 995


    SMTP Server: smtp.att.yahoo.com
    Security type: SSL
    SMTP Port: 465

    I set up K-9 client and had difficulty setting up my att.net account. I have a sidekick and my carrier is Tmobile.
    I'll merely repeat here what I found in other posts:
    Incoming (fetching):
    under user name type (username)@att.net
    Under POP3: pop.att.yahoo.com
    SSL always
    Authentication type: Plain
    Port: 995
    Outgoing (sending):
    smtp.att.yahoo.com
    SSL always
    Port: 465
    Authentication type: login (i did not try automatic)
    Username: (username)@att.net
    Password
    NOTE: THE REAL PROBLEM I HAD WAS IN USING WI-FI TO ATTEMPT THE SETUP. ONCE
    I SWITCHED G3/4, IT VANISHED.:D

    Holy CRAP! I searched Sprint and AT&T with ZERO luck! Thanks so much, THIS worked!

    Haha glad someone found it useful. I actually came searching for this thread because I just flashed a new ROM and I needed these settings again.
