reply to NetFixer
Re: BS Yahoo Mail and Mac Mail 6.x Thank you, NetFixer. I feel like I have tried every combination and permutation to get this to work. (And believe me, I have set up lots of email accounts over the years.). The fmailhost.isp.att.net goes into never never land during a connection check. Yeah, I can see this being related to the OS as two systems crapped out while my PCs are fine. But, the big change is what changed.
Everything is working but that darn smtp outgoing server! :-(
Don't know if this will help you or not but this morning I changed my outgoing to: smtp.att.yahoo.com port 465 (SSL and require sign-in) and I can sent email again.

You might try using the server fmailhost.isp.att.net, SSL, port 465 instead of outbound.att.net to see if that helps.
That fixed my wife's email on her MB Pro.
I have been trying to fix it for weeks.
Edit: I was using outbound.att.net successfully on my MBAir and it went south this afternoon. Changed my settings to fmailhost.isp.att.net and now all is well. Thanks again.
