  • I don't have an alternative recovery phone and I need to access my emails

  • Does the latest operating system for Apple iPhones and Mac computers require that I use the Yahoo email server vs. the att server which I have used for years? I recently changed my password for my att.net email and my att server no longer works but I am getting emails thru Yahoo. We have been told by the local ATT Store that we need to switch to Yahoo since the latest operating system upgrade to our iPhones and Mac computer. Also, I downloaded the procedures for using the Yahoo server and it requires that I use my password. Is my recently changed Att email password the same as my Yahoo password? I don't recall having a separate password when ATT/Yahoo email worked together.
