Introduction to SBCglobal Email
Those who have been in the tech and IT sector surely know or have heard of sbcglobal.net. In the US, many used sbcglobal.net as their main internet service provider, and for the longest time it was the best. However, in 2003 it became harder to manage the services it was providing and it became bankrupt. Almost on cue, AT&T came and bought the company together with other smaller companies. This became the first step in the company’s road back to the market. At the same time AT&T merged with Yahoo, and this introduced the SBCglobal email service.
Setting up SBCglobal Email on your iPhone
In the smartphone world, iPhone is among the two topmost smartphones bought. However, in terms of apps the iPhone is the king. Because of this, your iPhone is one of the most intuitive gadgets you can have. Numerous apps have been created to link your email with the phone so that you receive them like the way you’d receive an SMS. With POP and SMTP servers, receiving emails is easy and straightforward. You can also set-up your SBCglobal email account to your iPhone.
The following are two steps to follow:
If you use Yahoo:
- Under the iPhone settings tap Mail, Contacts and Calendar.
- Add an Account, specifically Yahoo
- You’ll fill the form; usually your name, email address, password and a description of the account.
- Select the item related with the account you have just described in the third step for your iPhone.
Manually setting up the Account
- Tap the Mail, Contact and Calendar icon
- Go to ‘Add Account’ and select ‘Other.’
- Select ‘Mail’ as the account type you want
- A form will appear and you’ll fill it with details such as name, email address, password, and account type. Afterwards, you’ll still need to input a POP server name. This usually has the name of the mail service in it. You’ll also need to input the outgoing mail SMTP server name, also with the mail service’s name in it.
- After all this is done, save the settings.
It is best to note that setting up with Yahoo is easier and straightforward. The manual setting is there in the event the automatic settings don’t succeed.
Apart from using your iPhone, you can also set up your desktop to link in with SBCglobal email.
