I have a firstname.lastname@example.org email for about ten years now. I have always accessed it through microsoft outlook. A couple days ago my computer crashed and i lost everything. I have no programs on my computer anymore. I need to get into my email i have tons of work related stuff and hundreds of contacts. Please let me know what I can do, if anything at all to access my email. Thanks in advance.

This would take you to the mail inbox page.
If you want to set up the AT&T Yahoo! e-mail account in an e-mail program like Microsoft Outlook (which is a non supported AT&T software), the following link provides the basic configuration information to be able to send and receive e-mail using an AT&T e-mail address.
Please select the version of Outlook ( 2003, 2007 or 2010) when you open the help article.
Some of the basic settings are as follows-
Incoming mail server (POP3) as pop.att.yahoo.com with port number 995
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) as smtp.att.yahoo.com with port number 465
The Secure Socket Layer (SSL) option should be checked for both incoming and outgoing mail.
