If you are getting "send errors" or "553 errors", you may need to authorize your rc.net email address with AT&T. (AT&T has been randomly implementing this requirement.)
The steps to do this are:
  • With your browser, go to www.att.net
  • Click on "Mail" and sign in using your AT&T email address and password.
  • Click the "gear" icon in the upper right area of the page
  • Click on "Mail Options" in the pulldown menu that appears
  • Click on "Mail Accounts" in the menu on the left side of the screen
  • Click the "+add" button
  • Fill in the name (your display name, anything is fine) and your rc.net email address and click "continue"
  • In the new window that opens up, don't fill in any fields, just click on "SKIP THIS STEP, SETUP TO SEND ONLY" at the bottom
  • Now check your rc.net email for the message from AT&T, follow the clickthrough step there, and your email address will now be authorized to send through AT&T's outgoing email server
