Sbcglobal email to yahoo mail


I have had some issues with my sbcglobal email for a while now.  (Thank you for your help getting me access to my email.)  I would like to switch to yahoo email and make yahoo my default email.  How can I move all my sbcglobal emails to a yahoo address?  And is there a way to forward sbcglobal emails to the yahoo address for a few months?

Hey there @Budkitc. We would be happy to answer your questions about your email service.


Unfortunately, there is no way to move all of your email from your sbcglobal email to a yahoo email account. There is a way to forward other email accounts to your AT&T Mail:

  • Go to your external email account website and sign in.
  • Select your email settings.
  • Choose the option to forward your email and enter your AT&T email address.
  • Save your changes to start receiving emails from this account in your AT&T inbox.

We would also suggest setting up your email for Microsoft Outlook 2016 to help manage your email account, and to help keep it secure.


Please let us know if this helped.

Wow ATTHelp Robert, just wow. 

The OP is having issues with their Yahoo/AT&T email account and wants to move email OUT, so you offer a solution to forward emails TO that problematic account?  And then you link to a 6 yr old email client?  🙄

@Budkitc   The one thing Robert got right is there's no way to move your email to a Yahoo account.  Gmail offers a way, using their Import tool found under Settings, then Accounts and Import.  It does essentially what you want, moving existing emails and folders to Gmail (and Contacts if you choose) and then will continue to bring over new email that comes into the sbc account for 30 days.
