ATT Email Settings in Thunderbird : Thunderbird can be used as a client for an AT&T email account. Thunderbird will download messages from the AT&T server and store them on your local system. Similarly, Thunderbird can be used to compose messages which are sent through AT&T’s mail servers.
ATT Email Settings in Thunderbird
Installed Thunderbird on your Mac (or PC) and you just want to add an account for your ATT Email Settings in Thunderbird account. To begin, get to the accounts screen by clicking the right mouse button ( or using control-click on your mac) and select “Settings…”
Once in settings screen, click on the “Account Actions drop-down and select “Add Mail Account…”
On this next screen, fill in your name, your email address, and your email account password and click the Continue button:
It may think for a while, then bring back a screen that looks like this:
At this point, you should be able to just click the “Done” button and begin to use your new email address. If you would like to verify that the server information is correct, you can click the “Manual Config” button and see a screen that looks like:
Notice on this screen, I have replaced the “@att.net” with “@sbcglobal.net” because my account has been around for a while and is still using the older “sbcglobal.net” address. After I have verified everything is correct, I just click the “Done” button so get back to the account summary screen:
One thing to keep in mind, be SURE to enter (register) your ATT.NET (or any other branch) on yahoo or whatever client before entering the information in Thunderbird.
Sometimes, found out that att.net was not fully registered with yahoo when started trying Thunderbird. Once registered ATT with Yahoo and entered the information in Thunderbird, it worked perfectly!
