Missing mail and folders since server settings change
For at least the last couple of years with MacMail my server settings was imap.mail.yahoo.com & smtp.mail.yahoo.com.
The last week or so I wasn’t able to sign in on my iMac’s mail. The password and user name was correct, still didn’t work.
after a few days talking here with the @@AT&T help team I was advise to delete the email account and re add it with the new server settings of imap.mail.att.net and smtp.mail.att.net.
This new settings change got me up and going again and for that I thank the team and am very appreciative.
First let me say My AT&T/Yahoo website mail and Mobil devices (iPhone and iPad) were never affected, only my iMac.
Even after the new server settings, they were all fine except for MacMail on my iMac.
After the servers setting were changed most of the folders I created along with the emails inside were no longer present. To be clear, they were still on the mobile devices and online but were completely wiped from my MacMail.
If I would have known this were going to happen I could have exported all the folders (mailboxes) and imported after the settings change.
is there any way to export the online folders/mailboxes or have AT&T synch the mail from the old server settings to the new server settings.
Here are a couple of screenshots of the folders/mailboxes from the online AT&T mail app. These (and more) were on the iMac and are still on the mobile devices.
