In this blog article, we will discuss how to transfer an SBCGlobal email account to your Gmail account by simple steps. The transfer method is relatively simple and can be done using the Fetcher function, which is just a part of Gmail. But there’s one question here. Only accounts created before June 11th, 2011 are to be transferred. If after that your account has been created, the company will not provide a POP3 server, which is necessary for direct transfer.
So, here’s the method described in a very simple way to understand, keeping the subject matter in mind.
If you have an SBCGlobal account you created after June 11th, 2011, which is almost at its expiry date, then your best bet is to transfer the email to an email client such as Mozilla Thunderbird or Microsoft Outlook where you can use the IMAP protocol. With this form, you will not be able to see the emails on your Gmail account but you may be able to transfer the email to a computer. To do this, you must add your SBCGlobal account to the server form using IMAP, and enter ‘imap.mail.yahoo.com’ in the server name. You need to type ‘993’ when it comes to port configuration and allow SSL security.
The POP3 configuration refers to all SBCGlobal net email settings ending in SBCGlobal.net, att.net, Ameritech.net, packbell.net, flash.net, swbell.net, nvbell.net, wans.net, prodigy.net, and snet.net.
So, this is the method of moving emails from SBCGlobal webmail to Gmail using the mediator site SBCGlobal net. If there is some trouble with uploading, then you can use the SBCGlobal email problem solvers to help. The email transfer method is easy and very necessary because the old webmail service of SBCGlobal is not good enough to satisfy the users.
