Extremely Frustrated: Cannot successfully log into mail.yahoo.com. AT&T Page logs me in but keeps me in a loop of re-selecting my user ID

System allows me to log in then keeps me in a loop where I cannot exist and view my email.

Hi @mlorenz2! We completely understand your concern regarding logging into mail.yahoo.com, and would like to help. Let's get the assistance you require.

 

In order to fix this, we'd recommend you to follow this below mentioned basic troubleshooting steps.

 


Keep your info current


Forgot your AT&T Mail password? Want to change it for security reasons? We can help.
There are a few steps to make sure you can easily change or reset your password.

Do you check your email at currently.com? You’ll always manage your email password on att.com (myAT&T).

Good to know: The password used to sign into your email and myAT&T are the same. If you change your AT&T Mail password, your AT&T user ID password will change, too.
 I don’t know my password


Did you recently change your AT&T user ID password? Try to sign in to your email using your new password. If that doesn’t work, reset your password.

  1. Go to reset your password.
  2. Enter your user ID and the last name associated with your ID.
  3. Choose your verification method and follow the prompts.
  4. Enter and confirm your new password.


I know my password

For security reasons, we suggest you change your password regularly. You can do this on myAT&T.

  1. Go to your myAT&T Profile. Sign in, if asked.
  2. Scroll to Sign in info.
  3. Select Edit next to Password.
  4. Enter and save your password info.



Access your email on the web

  1. Go to currently.com.
  2. Select Mail.
  3. Enter your email address and password.
  4. Get your authentication security code. If you have more than one phone number on your account, choose which number should get your code.
  5. Enter the code and click Submit to sign in.

Troubleshoot your email account, settings, and apps



AT&T Mail account and settings

  • Check your email size. If your email is too big, it may not be sent.
  • Be sure you’re using the correct recipient email address. If not, you may get error messages like Failed Delivery or Problem Found - Message Not Sent.
  • Try signing out of your email account and signing back in.
  • Check your spam folder for missing emails.
  • Review your settings. Select the gear icon, then check:   
    • Blocked addresses: Be sure you aren’t blocking addresses you want to get email from.
    • Filters: Are emails going to the correct folder?
  • Check if your account has been hacked. Your account may be compromised if you’re:   
    • Missing emails
    • Receiving emails from your own email address
    • Getting complaints about spam coming from your email address
    • Seeing a display name that's different from the one you set up


Learn what to do if your email has been hacked or phished



Email programs and apps

  • Make sure you have an active internet connection.
  • See if you have a message in your Outbox folder. If so, remove it and try to send a new message.
  • Review common email error codes and steps to resolve them.
  • Make sure you are using the correct email client settings.

FYI: We’re upgrading our email security. If you get your email through an email program or app, be sure you’re ready for the changes. Learn more about the security upgrade.


Check for browser issues

  • Open AT&T Mail in a different web browser. For example, if you normally use Google Chrome®, try Firefox®.
  • Verify that your browser accepts cookies. If so, clear your cookies and cache. You’ll find this info in your browser's Preferences, Settings, or Options menu.
  • Enable JavaScript, and make sure it’s up to date. You’ll find it in your browser’s Settings or Options menu.
  • Disable browser tools or add-ons to see if they’re causing issues with email access.
  • Enable Adobe Flash Player and make sure it’s updated.
  • Check the settings of your firewall, antivirus programs, and anti-spyware software. They can cause a conflict with email programs and web browsers. Disable them one at a time and try to access your email. Don't forget to turn them back on once you know they aren’t causing the problem.

I apologize for sounding rude but but your template-based response is not helpful. I found all of the information that you provided on the AT&T site. Please also note that some of the information that is being provided is horribly out of date:

"Adobe stopped supporting Flash Player on December 31, 2020, and removed its download page two days later. Adobe also blocked Flash content from running in Flash Player on January 12, 2021, to help protect users' systems."

Hey @mlorenz2, we understand you’re unable to log in to mail.yahoo.com, we hear you and let's team up and change this experience for you.

 

  • In your browser, try opening a private browsing or incognito window and logging in. You can find this option in your web browser’s menu. If this works, try clearing your browser's cookies and cache to solve the problem.
  • Log in from another computer or device if possible. Does it allow you to log in there? If so, try rebooting the first computer/device and trying again.

We recommend you to check on how to resolve email issues.

 

Let us know if this helps.

Thank you for reaching out on AT&T Community & Forums!

Hi @mlorenz2,

I understand your concern. Let's get the help you need.

 

I see that you have tried all troubleshooting steps and also clearing your browser's cookies and cache.
If you want to sign in to a Yahoo Mail account, and are constantly getting to the AT&T email sign loop. Then, here is where you should go to sign in instead. 

 

I hope the above information helps!

 

Please try the above mentioned details, and get back to us if you still need help with this.

 

Thank you,

Justin, AT&T Community Specialist.
