For you to access your SBCglobal account online, you need to go to log in, at the Yahoo mail Att.net login page. SBCglobal.net mail is nowadays part of att.net mail. And the said att.net mail is accessible through Yahoo: thanks to a partnership between AT&T Internet services and Yahoo. Thus, when you carry out a search for SBCglobal, you are directed to the Yahoo mail /att.net mail log in page. There, at the Yahoo Mail Att.net login page, you are required to enter your AT&T ID/your AT&T email, and your password, in order to access your account.
Making sense of the connection between SBCglobal, AT&T and Yahoo Mail
The connection between SBCglobal, AT&T (as in, att.net) and Yahoo Mail seems to be intricate at first. But it is actually quite simple. The initials SBC in SBCglobal stand for Southwestern Bell Company. This is what the company that is nowadays known as SBC was known as, prior to 2005. In 2005, SBC purchased AT&T, and opted to adapt AT&T’s better-known brand name. This is what culminated in its rebranding, from SBC, to AT&T. But before all this happened, there were some folks who had signed up for the legacy SBCglobal email addresses. These continued to be supported. The SBC legacy customers were the first to be put on the AT&T Yahoo! Service. That was even before AT&T severed its relationship with Google (in January 2008), leading to the Migration of all its webmail clients to the Yahoo platform. So this is how we end up with a situation where SBCglobal.net email accountholders are required to go to Yahoo’s att.net portal, to access their accounts.
