What is SBCGlobal.net Email?
SBCGlobal.net Email is a legacy email service, which was originally offered by the Southwestern Bell Corporation, or SBC for short.
Today, SBC still functions as a subsidiary of AT&T, but the SBCGlobal Email service has since been re-branded under the AT&T name and email accounts have migrated to the AT&T Yahoo! Service.
Nevertheless, some customers continue to use SBCGlobal email addresses and these continue to be supported.
How Do I Sign Up for an SBCGlobal Email Account?
The original SBCGlobal Email website ( http://www.sbcglobal.net ) is no longer available. Previously, it had re-directed to a number of different websites, including http://sbcglobal.prodigy.com, http://my.att.net and http://att.yahoo.com – but the SBCGlobal Email login page can no longer be accessed in this way.
Due to a series of migrations and integrations, you will also no longer be able to create a new email address with the @sbcglobal.net suffix. Instead, you will have to either create an AT&T Mail address, or a Yahoo! address.
If you want an AT&T email address, you can sign up by visiting:
From there, click on the ‘Mail’ option, which can be found in the top right-hand corner, and then select ‘Create AT&T Account’, which you should see under the main ATT email login form.
On the first page, you will need to enter your wireless number and zip code in the respective fields, then click on the ‘Continue’ button underneath. This will provide you with the confirmation code that is needed to proceed. Once you have your confirmation code, simply follow the instructions to register for a new email account.
At present, the two options for email suffixes via this method are @att.net and @currently.com.
The alternative is to create a Yahoo! Mail account, which will have the @yahoo.com suffix and you can do so by visiting the main sign up page at: https://login.yahoo.com/account/create
You will need to enter your name, your desired email address and your chosen password for the service, along with some additional personal details. Once you have done so, click ‘Continue’ to complete the process.
ATT.net and Yahoo! Mail Account Merging.
Prior to 2017, it was possible to have a merged email account, with both your Yahoo! Mail and AT&T Mail functioning as a single account. Essentially, this meant your combined inbox would show emails sent to either account and you were also able to log in to either inbox using the same shared login credentials.
However, since 2017, this option is no longer available. Moreover, previously merged accounts were unmerged as part of this separation process, with users returning to having both a Yahoo! Mail and ATT email login. This means you can no longer sign in to your Yahoo! Mail account using your AT&T credentials, or vice versa.
How Do I Log in to My SBCGlobal Email Account?
How do I login to SBCGlobal net?
- To log in to your SBCGlobal Email account, you will need to access the main SBCGlobal Email login page, now offered by AT&T. This login page can now be found at: https://digitallocker.att.net.
- Once the page loads, simply enter your login credentials in the fields provided and then click on the ‘Sign In’ button underneath.
- If you are using a personal computer, rather than a shared computer, you can also check the ‘Keep Me Signed In’ option, which will keep you automatically signed in for two weeks, unless you specifically opt to sign out.
This login page allows users to access @sbcglobal.net or @att.net email accounts, along with a variety of additional domains.
Why Am I Unable to Sign In to My SBCGlobal Email Account?
At times, users may run into problems when trying to log in to their account. However, most of these problems do have solutions, so the main difficulty is usually in identifying the cause of the issue, rather than resolving it.
Before trying anything else, it is important that you are using the correct URL, which is: https://digitallocker.att.net
You will also need to check that your internet connection is working properly. A simple way to do this is to simply refresh the page you are on, or try to visit any other website. If you have problems loading other pages, the issue is likely to be with your connection, rather than with the AT&T email service.
If you are sure you are using the right login page and you are certain your connection is working, but you cannot log in, the first step is to double check your login credentials have been entered correctly. It is easy to miss small details, such as typing an ‘o’ instead of a ‘0’, and you need to also remember that your password is case sensitive.
If you tend to copy your credentials from a saved document, double check that you have not accidentally copied a SPACE at the beginning or end of either your username or password, as this will register as a character.
You can check whether or not the AT&T email server is working by visiting:
If you continue to experience problems, there may be an issue related to your web browser, so you could try logging in using ‘incognito’ mode, or clearing your cache and cookies. Alternatively, you could try using a different web browser than your usual option. Some of the browsers that should work include Chrome, Firefox and Safari. Failing that, you could also try signing in via a different device, such as a mobile phone, tablet, desktop or laptop.
Finally, it may also help to temporarily disable any ad-blocking software or plug-ins, or set up exceptions for the ATT.net domain. This is because ad-blockers can occasionally interfere with login processes.
How Can I Reset My SBCGlobal Email Password?
If you have forgotten your password, or if you need to reset it for any other reason, you can do so from the main SBCGlobal email login page at: https://digitallocker.att.net
Once the page has loaded, click on the link labelled ‘Forgot Password?’ and follow the instructions. For verification purposes, you may need to provide your User ID, as well as some personal information. Once you have done so, click on the ‘Continue’ button and follow the instructions to reset your password and regain access to your account.
How Can I Recover a Forgotten SBCGlobal Email ID?
If you cannot remember your User ID, you may be able to recover it, as long as you provided a secondary contact email address during the sign up process. Assuming you did so, go to the main login page at: https://digitallocker.att.net/
After the page loads, click on the link labelled ‘Forgot User ID?’ and enter your secondary email address in the field provided, then click on the ‘Continue’ button. Once you have done this, your User ID should be sent to that address. If you cannot see the email in your inbox, make sure you check any junk mail or spam folders.
