Using SSL with SBC Yahoo and Windows Mail

Messages

#1
Several months ago SBC Yahoo started requiring that the secure connection feature (SSL) in windows mail be used to access their pop3 and smtp servers. I changed the settings and ports and everything worked great...for about 2 months. Then I noticed I could not send emails. Receiving was okay but no send. I finally set the ports back to the non-SSL settings and that worked both ways for awhile even though Yahoo kept warning me I'd get cut off soon. Well, they finally did it. I cannot access my mail using Windows mail now either way. Both send and receive do not work. After contacting SBC Yahoo, they indicated that it was a problem with "Microsoft". I tried to get them to be more specific but they said to contact Microsoft and get them to fix it. Rather than run up a big bill with big M I checked here and found several others with similar problems but I'm not sure it's exactly the same thing. I also read a thread that mentioned something about a problem caused by a security setting in Windows Live One Care (which I am running also). The error message reads:

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Account: 'pop.att.yahoo.com', Server: 'pop.att.yahoo.com', Protocol: POP3, Port: 995, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

Can anyone help me?

"Unexpected" termination is almost always caused by interference
from an antivirus program. Which antivirus are you running?
As a minimum, email scanning in the antivirus must be turned off,
although that may not be sufficient to eliminate all bad effects.
In a worst case scenario, your antivirus may need to be uninstalled.

Email scanning in any antivirus must be disabled, for reasons
explained here:

If no improvement after disabling email scanning, consider upgrading
to Windows Live Mail, because it is less prone to suffering bad effects
from overly intrusive antivirus programs:
