Bulk forwarding from AT&T email account to Yahoo email account?

When my merged AT&T and Yahoo email accounts were unmerged, all the many emails in my various folders (Inbox, Sent, Archive, etc.) ended up in the AT&T account. I want to forward all of these emails to the Yahoo account. Is there a way to do that all at once, in bulk, rather than one at a time? Any info, many thanks.

Aside from the contacts where you can use the contacts export/import actions there is no way to transfer the entire contents in bulk of the mailboxes from one email account to another using the webmail interface.  However, in theory (I haven't had a need to actually try this) I believe you can use an email client app (e.g., Thunderbird, Outlook, etc.) with the "from" and "to" email accounts set up as IMAP accounts and using the client as the vehicle to sync the two accounts to their respective servers.   The "from" will populate the client's "from" account from its server, you move the folders into the "to" account within the client, and the "to" account populates the "to" server.

 

Of course if you decide to use a client email app why even bother using the webmail as the preferred email interface?  IMO email clients are much better for email than webmail any day.  Just continue to use the client you used to sync the two servers.
