    My wife's computer has Win.7 64 Bit and Win.Live Mail for E Mail. We are on ATT. DSL internet. The Live Mail will work for a while,then it won't connect. It says we put in the wrong password. I don't understand because nothing has been changed. I don't know how Windows Live Mail works. The account in LM is set up with the correct E Mail address and password. Why would it not send out the correct password?

    I thank you for the help. This is confusing because it will work for a while then stop.

    There has been reported password issues regarding Yahoo servers: (ATT has to pass your credentials on to Yahoo.)
    Re: Yahoo keep rejecting my email password? Uverse... - AT&T Community Support

    There is no real solution on that page.

    See if this post helps: (If you use the mail on your phone too)
    ***************************
    ...my new iPhone was causing the problem, due to the setting "push" being "on" and whenever the iPhone is awake, it keeps logging into my ATT/Yahoo mail account. Since POP servers do not like 2 simultaneous users for one account, my PC got the error. I leave my iPhone on all the time, on its charger.

    Well, I'm here to report that all I did was turn off "push" on the iPhone, and the problem has totally vanished! All I have to do now is "refresh" on the iPhone and my emails pop up.

    This morning it works fine. It must be the servers. I tried all afternoon and couldn't get it to work.
