When I try to connect to my sbcglobal news server I get the following error
message:

Windows Live Mail cannot connect to the internet, possibly because an
antivirus or firewall program won't allow it. Make sure any antivirus or
firewall programs on your computer allow Windows Live Mail (wlmail.exe) to
accesss the internet.

I have turned off the firewall and disable my antivirus program and I still
get the message.

Can anybody help ?

Using Internet Explorer, can you get to www.microsoft.com?

You should turn on your firewall and enable your anti-virus program.

When was the last time you used that news server?

sbcglobal doesn't have a news server anymore. It's been part of AT&T
for several years and last year AT&T dropped all news servers.

I switched to this free one:
