Att.net is one of the companies under AT&T which alongside others like flash.net and wans.net form the AT&T Worldnet. AT&T Worldnet just like Ameritech Interactive Media Services, Southwestern Bell Internet Services, SNET Diversified Group, and Prodigy among others all belong to AT&T with the singular function of providing its internet services.

For customers of the company through Att.net, you can have an email account through which you can send and receive emails and also manage your account which may include various services such as wireless or internet services. If you already have an email account, here is how you can log in to it, make configuration settings, and pay bills.

Att.net Email Login

When it comes to logging into your Att.net email account, it is important for you to understand if you have an Acess ID with an AT&T email address, you can use the same password for your Att.net and att.com. To log into your email, you can either use your browser or the mobile app.

While from your app all you will need to do is to launch your app and put in your log in details, here are steps when using the browser:

  • The first thing to do is to go to Att.net’s homepage – start.att.net
  • At the upper-right side of the page, click on Sign in
  • Put in your email and password and then click on the Sign in button.

Settings

For your Att.net configuration settings, it is the same with all other AT&T email domains except for the domain name which is always the domain you are using (ameritech.net, bellsouth.net, etc) and the IMAP User ID/User Name. As you start the settings, you will select Manual setup or additional server types before POP or IMAP and then your user information.

Here is the Att.net configuration setting:

  • Domain: att.net
  • IMAP Server / Port: imap.mail.att.net / 993
  • SMTP Server / Port: smtp.mail.att.net / 465 or 587
  • SSL Required?: Yes
  • IMAP User ID/User Name: [email protected]
  • Protocol Type: IMAP

More so, if you are using any of AT&T’s domains, you can use the settings below for either POP3 or IMAP on any desktop program as well as any mobile app. Settings for POP3. It is very important to get the server and port settings correct as it can prevent you from receiving and sending emails.

Settings For POP3

  • Email protocol: POP3
  • Inbound server: inbound.att.net
  • Inbound port: 995
  • SSL: Yes
  • Outbound server: outbound.att.net
  • Outbound port: 465

For your login information, you will use your full email address for User Name and then put your secure mail key for the password.

Is It The Same With Yahoo?

While there was a time when you could use your Att.net account to link to Yahoo websites, the two are not the same. When it was allowed, you could use your AT&T email address to access yahoo.com sites such as Yahoo, Yahoo Answers, Yahoo Auto, and others.

It was as recently as 2017 that the Dallas-based telecom stopped its customers from accessing Yahoo websites from the email service. In addition to that, customers could not also access sites like Tumblr and Flickr which at first were accessible through AT&T accounts.

Apart from Att.net, other AT&T domains that were also affected by the change include pacbell.net, prodigy.net, flash.net, nvbell.net,sbcglobal.net, snet.net, swbell.net, ameritech.net, bellsouth.net, and wans.net.

As the deal with Yahoo lasted, AT&T’s domains acted in some ways as yahoo accounts but after Verizon bought Yahoo’s internet business and the merger with AOL before AT&T walked away, the two operated independently. Hence merged email accounts between the two is no longer supported hence customers had to separate them.

Back to the question of whether Att.net email and Yahoo are the same, they are not the same, although they have partnered for up to 15 years before AT&T Inc.
