Does AT&T still support (and have) iMAP mail services?

I know that we have POP3 mail services.

Is iMAP for Mac mail clients?

What are the differences?

What are the settings for iMAP services?

IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) is a feature supported by most mail clients. To my knowledge though, it is not available on Uverse with your standard mail clients.

What are the differences?

The easiest way to think of IMAP is like a webmail client. All the messages are there and can be accessed by multiple devices. Any changes are done server side. POP3 downloads all your messages to the one device you have it setup on.

What are the settings for iMAP services?

Although Uverse does not work with IMAP on most mail clients, it does use IMAP on cell phone applications. The settings are as follow:

  • Incoming Server: imap.mail.yahoo.com
  • Outgoing Server: smtp.mail.yahoo.com
  • Incoming Port: 993 (requires SSL)
  • Outgoing Port: 465 (requires SSL/TLS)
  • User name: full email address (for example, bill@yahoo.com or bill@rocketmail.com)
  • Password: the password you use to log in to Yahoo! with.

Is IMAP the only way to 'sync' email?  I have two email accounts.  On one (not ATT/Yahoo), I am able to delete emails on my phone and they deleted from my pc and the other way around.  With my ATT/Yahoo POP account, I've just given up on cleaning up my email.  Is there a way to 'sync' my email so that I see the same thing on my iphone, ipad, pc and apple laptop?  I am able to do this with some other services but I've been using this ATT/yahoo for many, many years, and love the service and all the ways to get support...
