Setting up my existing att yahoo email on my new iMac

I have a att yahoo email setup on my iPhone, iPad and iMac and my MacBook. All work without a problem.

I bought a new iMac from apple brand new and just setting it up.  I clicked on the mail icon (application) and it prompts me which email I want to setup, gmail, outlook, yahoo etc.  I click yahoo and enter my email and password.  I get an error message that says “you are already logged into that account” the account already exists.  Click ok and it goes back to the original setup screen.

I know I can download the yahoo email app but prefer just to use the default mail application on the iMac.

Hey @Baxton1964, let's take a look at your email together.

 

We suggest resetting your password. Doing so will re-sync your account, allowing for new login attempts. 

  1. Go to att.com/myatt.
  2. Select Forgot password?
  3. Fill out the password info.
  4. Choose security questions or temporary password and follow the prompts. If you choose a temporary password, we’ll let you know where we sent it.
  5. Create your new password.

Please let us know if this helps.
