Accessing att.net Mail

Using a Web Browser Using the att.net Toolbar Using a Client Application Forwarding Incoming Mail

Forwarding Incoming Mail

att.net Mail allows you to forward messages that come to your att.net Mail account to another email address—even another att.net Mail address. If you enable email forwarding, all email addressed to your att.net Mail account automatically goes to your forwarding address and does not appear in your att.net Mail Inbox at all. (Messages that came into your mailbox before you turned on email forwarding, however, do remain in your account.)

The att.net Mail server sends forwarded messages to another address. Email clients cannot access forwarded messages.

Tip: The POP access and forwarding features can’t be used at the same time. While your mail is being forwarded to a different account, you won’t be able to access new mail with a POP mail client application from the att.net Mail server.

 

Here’s How

  1. In a browser, go to the POP & Forwarding page. (Remind me how.)

  2. On the POP & Forwarding page, make sure that the Forward your Yahoo! Mail option is selected.

    Select the Forward your Yahoo! Mail option.

  3. Enter the email address to which you want to forward your att.net Mail.

    Enter the address to forward your mail to.

  4. Click Save Changes.

    Click Save Changes

    The Verify Email Address window opens. You must verify that you are the owner of the email account you entered before you can forward email to it.

  5. In the Verify Email Address window, Step 1, click the blue Send Code link.

    Click the Send Code link.

    att.net Mail sends a message containing the verification code to the email address shown in the window (that is, the address that you want to forward your att.net Mail to).

  6. To complete the verification process immediately:

    • Go to forwarding mail account and look for a message from Yahoo! Member Services.

    • Note the confirmation code in the message.

    • Enter the confirmation code in the box in Step 3 of the Verify Email Address window, then click the Done button.

      Enter the confirmation code, then click Done.

      att.net Mail confirms that you’ve successfully verified the account.

      The address has been verified.

    Tip: You can also follow the instructions in the email message to complete the process.

  7. If you prefer to complete the verification process at a later time:

    • Click the Verify Later button.

      Click Verify Later.

      att.net Mail confirms that you must still verify the address before you can forward mail to it.

      This account still needs to be verified.

    • At a convenient time, check your external mail for a message from Yahoo! Member Services.

    • Follow the instructions in the email message to complete the verification process.

 

What’s Next

To turn off mail forwarding, return to the POP & Forwarding page and select the Allow your Yahoo! Mail to be POPed option instead of the Forward your Yahoo! Mail option.
