We would like you to know that this does not impact your att.net or AT&T email accounts. You can keep your existing email address to send and receive emails just as you always have. Please continue using att.net as your gateway to your AT&T email, news, entertainment, weather and other great online content.  Providing you with a secure and reliable email service remains a top priority. We remain committed to continuous improvements to better serve you.  The AT&T Email team is working hard to improve your AT&T Email experience and thank you for using AT&T Email.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Will my current email address change?

No.  While AT&T is currently investigating options to provide our customers with improved email services, your email address will not change. 

 

Will my email still work?

Yes.  Your email address will still function as it has, making it possible for you to send and receive emails, as well as access other mail-related features.

 

When will the Yahoo-Verizon deal take place?

We are not able to comment on the status of the Yahoo-Verizon agreement.

 

What are AT&T’s plans for email with Verizon buying Yahoo?

We would like you to know that this does not impact your att.net or AT&T email accounts. You can keep your existing email address to send and receive emails just as you always have. 

 

Do I need to cancel my service with Yahoo? 

That’s not needed.  Your att.net email account (including email IDs on various domains, including att.net, sbcglobal.net, bellsouth.net, ameritech.net, flash.net, nvbell.net, pacbell.net, prodigy.net, snet.net, swbell.net and wans.net) is not owned by Yahoo.  There is no need to cancel any of these email services as AT&T will ensure your email remains active and functional as we explore our email provider options.

 

Will this affect my ability to log on to att.net?

No.  Your current email address will continue to function as it has, and you’ll continue to be able to use this email address to sign into att.net.

Will I need to change my email of @sbcglobal.net once the Verizon and Yahoo merger occur?  I have U-verse as my internet through AT&T and use Outlook as my e-mail manager.

Hello.

 

I have five accounts ending @sbcglobal.net, which I access through Yahoo.  I pay monthly for the internet service and these email addresses.  How will these accounts be impacted by the sale of Yahoo to Verzion in terms of:

 

History/storage and access.

 

Thank you.

I just received an updated terms and conditions email from Yahoo.  It indicated unless we took action prior to June 8, 2017, we would be subject to the new Yahoo terms and conditions.  Please advise what we are supposed to do for our att.net email.  Thanks much!!  sel

Will AT&T still continue with the current email server(Yahoo) when the sale to Verizon of Yahoo closes

next month? That will be a curious situation.

I got and Email saying if I do not do something with my Yahoo Mail Version will be taking it over.  What is going to happen to all my emails that I have.  Are they going to get lost, go somewhere I can not get to them or is AT&T going to move them so I can stay with AT&T?  Can you help me?

 

Thanks, Charles in Slidell, Louisiana

I am the Yahoo Groups coordinator for a non-profit organization.  The group has been in existence since 2008.

We need to know if we should switch our group to Google or some other option now.

Any information would be helpful.

I received info that Verizon bought Yahoo.  Will my Ameritech.net email address transfer or will it be wiped out?
