As I said, my WLM wont connect, all the settings are correct as best as I can tell. Everything was working fine untill I had ATT, Uverse installed. After the tech left everything was fine. The next day it quit working. I get this message.

Unable to send or receive messages for the Bellsouth (rgheard) account. Windows Live Mail couldn't log on to the email server using authenticated POP (APOP). Contact your email provider and verify that it supports authenticated POP. To change this logon setting, in the folder list, right-click on the account name, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu. In the Properties dialog, click the Servers tab and then under Incoming Mail Server, select a logon option.

Server: ''
Windows Live Mail Error ID: 0x80004005
Protocol: POP3
Port: 995
Secure(SSL): Yes

I tried calliing Uverse, they sent me to Yahoo, which supposedly this type account is, they couldnt help so they transferred me to Windows support, where the lady promptly said they had online support and to look at it, which from what Ican tell, everything is correct.....

Someone please HELP
