Until about two weeks ago, I was an ATT Yahoo DSL customer. I went to another
ISP and in some ways went from bad to worse.
I did not have problems getting mail though, In kmail, make sure you have
kmail check for the authentication methods used by the server. IIRC it is
plaintext without TLS or SSL and apparently you are aware that you have to
use username at sbcglobal.net and that you need to authenticate to connect to
the mail server.
You might try starting with a new ~/.kde/share/apps/kmail by renaming the
current file. The other thing is not to use the spam filtering in kmail,
because I have problems with that and it can prevent mail from being
received, if you get lots of SPAM. I use Procmail for that instead.
