    I know this is a novice question but here I go

    I’ve been with SBC for years and I’m switching over to xfinity, Can I keep my ATT yahoo browser and my email as the [email protected] I really don’t want to go thru 200 sites to change all this over.

    Thanks for reading

    Sometimes when you drop an ISP they will keep your mail account active for about a month, but that I doubt AT&T will be more generous. If you want to know for sure ask them.

    I've never heard of an "ATT yahoo browser," so I have no idea about that.

    I doubt it.

    If you drop AT&T/SBC global as your ISP, you lose your email address with them.

    As far as the browser, yahoo and AT&T are history.

    Truthfully, you'd do better getting an email address at gmail.
    Xfinity/Comcast is my ISP and I never use the email address from them. If you change ISPs, all the mail has to be moved before you change over. If you have a gmail email account, it stays the same no matter who your ISP is.

    Too many friends of ours switch back and forth between Verizon and Comcast and have to keep telling everyone about the new email address.

    I went from ATT DSL last year to spectrum and still have my Sbcglobal.net address and I access mine through web mail, my wife does POP3 on her computer with SeaMonkey. She has had some issues lately where she gets a "cant find server" error some times. I can log into her web mail and the POP3 starts working again. I have read others that have dropped ATT have kept their email addresses for years. Only thing there is no support from ATT if your password gets messed up or you forget it.
    PS, It maybe I have never accepted the new OATH agreement, I always check "do it later"

    From ATT terms of service :"Unless otherwise specified, if you cancel your Service, your account ID email address will remain active, as will all email subaccounts you have created. The email accounts may be accessed from the att.net Web site."
