Whether AT&T has SBC Global or SWBELL.net or yahoo.com, AT&T has taken them so that you can connect to Yahoo.com and receive email and use the webmail feature. You can take this username and password and set them up in Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Live, etc. They change and the webmail, out of nowhere, works, but third party mail doesn’t. So, after a painful follow-up, I wrote instructions to get past AT&T’s third-party verification, and everything came back to normal. Unfortunately, it happened again, but we investigated furthermore and found a new AT&T “secure email key”. So now I can log on to yahoo.com and everything works, but no third party emails, so no worries. If your password works on yahoo.com, it doesn’t matter, follow these instructions and the new key will eventually replace your password. Everything is fine, and your AT&T email address still works for me.
