ATT Outlook Error 553, Continues.

One big happy dysfunctional family called ATT is continuing to wreak havoc on users. It is not clear if they were hacked and won’t admit it or if the system imploded and they won’t admit that either.

What is clear to users is if you run a business and use an address like and access the internet using ATT DSL you will have more trouble than you bargained for.  We assume you have already changed the SSL ports which is why you were able to progress to the 553 relay error.  All ATT DSL accounts have an address like but go to to actually login using the button at the top of the page you will get an error 100% of the time. No need to switch browsers from Firefox to IE that is not the problem.
