Where are my sbcglobal.net emails?

Since Yahoo and Sbcglobal email accounts were decoupled, I now need to access my sbcglobal.net email. 

Is there a web interface to this email account? I tried start.att.net suggested in another post and it simply sends me over to yahoo email. Is there a pop3/smtp server to access?

 

Please provide the necessary information to retrieve sbcglobal.net email.


Thank you.

I have lost all my sbcglobal.net email. and no one can seem to help me find out how to get it back. I've posted here and called At&t. My husband is an employee too!

Hi Cary, I don't know if you've received help, but I access my sbcglobal email on www.yahoo.com In the right hand corner is/or should be a email symbol, the envelope. Click on it and you should find the option to log in. Use your sbcglobal email and your in. I don't have a yahoo account so you don't need one to log into your sbc email. The only other way I've found to log into my sbcglobal email is on ATT. I have ATTUverse  so I have access to my mail through them. It wouldn't hurt to see if you can establish an account on their website to access your email. You can call them at 800-288-2020 to ask them. Good luck!

You need to set it up as an IMAP account! Never use POP3 unless you're living in pre-1998 times. Anyhow  it's a waste of time anyways  Read on:

 

 Sbcglobal went out of business 20 YEARS ago. AT&T grandfathered sbcglobal.net and SNET.net accounts in  but AT&T then left CT around 3 years ago. They are slowly removing all the old SNET and sbcglobal accounts. What I don't understand is why are people upset that the email address they're using from a company that WENT OUT OF BUSINESS 20 YEARS AGO !!! You are no longer paying AT&T for your DSL internet but expect them to keep maintaining your email address that they were nice enough to allow you to continue using in the first place. Unfortunately, most of the tech support people at AT&T don't realize that AT&T is getting rid of these outdated email accounts. They started doing this in November of 2017. Most likely you had your email incorrectly setup as a POP3 account so you will actually still be able to read your old email. If you have it setup the "right" way as an IMAP account, then your old emails are gone  for good. I say right and wrong because the world started switching to IMAP decades ago so that you could read your email on multiple devices and have them all synchronize. POP3 is really only meant to be read from a single device. If you've ever wondered why your sent mail folders don't show the same emails and when you create a new email folder it doesn't show up on all devices  you are setup using the POP3 standard and your IT guy should be fired! Once again, sbcglobal went out of business in 1998. I think 20 years was long enough to find a new email address!
