With an att.yahoo account you want "SSL" for sending but no security 
setting for receiving.

Just so you know, with att.yahoo you can send mail from any connection 
unless the ISP blocks it. We have an att.yahoo account that we keep as a 
backup. Our main provider, wireless, requires ALL outgoing mail to go 
through their server. I receive it through the att.yahoo account. When 
traveling and using wifi connections at hotels and such I send through 
the att.yahoo account without difficulty.
