I can't send messages in outlook but I can receive them. It gives me an error message that the connection was interrupted. I went to the help page of AT&T and did what I was supposed to do but it still will not work. I'm constantly getting a pop up window with this error. Help!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This means that there is a problem with your outgoing server aka the SMTP server. I went to the ATT website and verified the settings that were there.

Normally when you are in the situation you are in – it is the outgoing servers authentication that is not checked:

Check the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication checkbox. If the Incoming Mail Server (POP3) for the account being setup is your AT&T account (fpostoffice.isp.att.net) than: Choose Use same settings as my incoming mail server and click OK.

And of course make sure you are using an ATT internet line or this will always fail.
