ATT Email

It was a surprise to me, coming from COMCAST that ATT was forcing consumers to acquire their email via Yahoo. 

 

I'd like to access my ATT email via ATT email servers, and not go through Yahoo. Is that possible? If not, why not?

 

I would also like a simple concise document explaining how to access my ATT email from a client on my SmartPhone. On an Android, it was easy enough to setup the Yahoo email client, but it's not a very good client. I've never had problems setting up an email client on my Android phone... until I tried it for an @att.net address.

No you cannot go through the att email servers because they don't exist!  Att uses yahoo as their email service provider (ESP) so you're stuck with it unless you decide to use some 3rd party ESP yourself.  There's nothing stopping you from doing that and there are plenty of both pay and free ESP's to choose from.  Google for them.

Here's the server info you need to set up your client(s).  But you should also read this about passwords, specifically about using a secure mail key in place of your account password.

How can I get my att.net emails?   They do not show up in yahoo and when I try to log onto the att.net email lately, it just goes to yahoo.  Can this not be fixed so we can either access our emails through att.net or have them combined with yahoo again so we can at least see them?   I can't get to att.net to redirect the emails that go directly there. 


Help!


Thanks!

@MailConcerns -

I can't get to att.net to redirect the emails that go directly there. 

If you go to start.att.net and click the mail icon in the upper right where does that take you?  Should see an login and then to the att/yahoo webmail.

You keep getting ridiculous with your constant changes. It is so frustrating that I will no longer use this site and go back to google.
