AT&T offers an email account to its users that can be used for not only communicating with AT&T but it can also be used as a personal email account to work with emails.
Apart from this, the highlighting feature offered by AT&T to its users was that you can merge your Yahoo email account with AT&T and access all the emails under one roof. This also lets you share passwords; however, some users found it really confusing using this feature; so here you will find complete details about the merger and how you can separate your Yahoo account from AT&T.
The Association of AT&T and Yahoo
The merger of AT&T and Yahoo allowed its users to use a combined account and enabled them to use the service of both AT&T and Yahoo simultaneously. A merged account comes with the following features:
- Sign in to your AT&T account by entering the Yahoo email address.
- Sign into Yahoo as well as the AT&T account using the same details.
- The same password will work to login to both the accounts.
- It is easy to access the emails from both the accounts in the same place.
- If you will reset the AT&T account password, it will also reset the Yahoo account’s password.
- When you will try to login to Yahoo mail, you will be directed to the AT&T webpage.
All these features were available when Yahoo and AT&T were working in association but now it is no more possible as both the email services have decided to part their ways. As per sources, Yahoo and AT&T were not much excited about their union and were reportedly using ‘MY AT&T Page’ and ‘My Yahoo Page’ separately. There were a few users who were availing of the combined benefits of ‘MY AT&T Yahoo Page.’
This happened due to the fact that the association was completely new for the users and even some of them faced confusion and issues while using the email services after their association.
The Yahoo and AT&T merger also hampered the user’s experience as the interface of Yahoo changed altogether with its features and it even got AT&T logo, features, and log in facilities.
All this led to a lot of confusion among the users making them wondering about when they will be able to move back to using Yahoo and AT&T usually as before and get benefitted from them individually.
