Sbcglobal.net/Yaho email settings

So, I went against my better judgement and went ahead and purchased the HTC One S today.

 

Everything went smoooth with app, SMS, contact transfer.

 

I've setup both an Exchange server account and Gmail account with no problem.  For the life of me I CANNOT get the SBCGlobal.net (Yahoo) account to work.  Used the same stettings that worked on my Samsung Vibrant that I just stopped using a few hours ago...still won't authenticate for the sbcglobal.net account.  Here is what I used in 'manual' setup:

 

- Protocol - POP

- email address

- Username - email address

- Password

- Pop server - pop.sbcglobal.yahoo.com

- Security - none

- Port - 110

 

I've tried none, SSL and TLS for security...none worked.

 

Did some digging and notice that this problem seems to be pervasive on HTC products.

 

Anyone have a fix?

    After 3 hours fumbling around, I was able to find the answer to my problem:

     

    Despite my email working fine with the settings above on my old Samsung Vibrant, I found the following new settings that worked 1st try on the ATT.net support site:

     

    Pop server/port:

    inbound.att.net/995

    SSL required

     

    SMTP server/port:

    outbound.att.net/465

    SSL required

     

    How my old phone was able to work using different...anyones guess.  Hpefully, my 3 hours spent will save another user time.  FYI, HTC One S....AWESOME.
