Enter the Yahoo Password for Your Email – Things to know from AT&T

 

You are probably wondering if reentering your email password is a legitimate request from AT&T. Don’t worry, it is 😊

AT&T is improving your email experience by adding a Secure Mail Key. There are steps we are taking to make this happens and reentering your password is just the first step. So, sit back, relax and reenter your password.

 

Don’t Remember Your Password?

  1. Go to myAT&T.
  2. Select Forgot Password?
  3. Complete the password info.
  4. Choose security questions or temporary password and follow the prompts.
    If you choose temporary password, we’ll let you know where we sent it. 
  5. Create your new password.

 

Do you use an email client like Outlook or MacMail?

If you use a client, not to worry our Setup Your Email Client page will guide you through the steps and help you update some settings.

 

Heads Up: You do not need to make changes if you have a compatible mail client shown below.

 

Compatible Applications

  • Outlook 2010, 2013, 2016
  • Mozilla Thunderbird
  • Windows Mail on personal computers running Windows 8 or older
  • Apple Mail/Mac Mail on macOS 10.10/Yosemite or older

I have been away from my computer for a while, due to illness.  I am trying to get into my sbcglobal account. This is my main account and I had verified it before the separation of att & sbcglobal. I am well now, and seriously need to get into that account as it is where business e-mails, bank e-mails, and all my personal e-mails go to.  I am writing to you in hopes of getting some help.  I do have an alternate e-mail where non important e-mails go to, but would prefer to keep my sbcglobal account. Thank you for any help in advance.

Years ago I added a second email account using the Mailbox Listing in the settings function.  For some unknown reason the second email account is not able to synchronize and the emails for the second account are not being transferred.  I have tried changing the password on the second account with an success.  I am using Microsoft Edge and Yahoo Mail.  I tried using Chrome web browser with the same results.  Any suggestions on how to get the second account to synchronize?
