In case the users are looking to move from their old AT&T email account to the Gmail account, then they must do it via Gmail’s Mail Fetcher Utility Tool. But one thing they need to make sure that they had created an AT&T account before June 11, 2011, otherwise the process of direct transfer would not be possible. It is because AT&T will not give the POP3 server access. And if you have created an account in this email service after the given date, then the best possible solution is to download the emails and transfer them to Microsoft Outlook using IMAP protocol. However, in this scenario, you won’t be able to transfer the emails to the Gmail account. Now, let’s discuss the actual topic of discussion of this blog. You can read the troubleshooting steps for the transfer process or can get in direct touch with the customer care executives at AT&T Email tech customer support.
How to transfer the emails from AT&T to Gmail?
- On the web browser search for Gmail login and enter your ID and password to sign in to your Google account
- Click on the toolbar that appears on the top right corner and from the drop-down menu, tap on ‘Settings.’
- Now further click on ‘Accounts’ tab and then in the option of Check Mails from another account, click on ‘Add a POP3 Mail account you Own.’
- In the given field, enter your AT&T email address. Then click on ‘Next.’
- Then you need to input AT&T mail password
- In the POP server field, type inbound.att.net and after that change the port settings to 995
- To prevent Gmail from deleting AT&T emails, put a tick mark on the box which says ‘Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server.’
- In the next box which says ‘Always use a secure connection when retrieving mail,’ put a checkmark too
- In case you want that Gmail should mark the messages that are from the AT&T account, then you can put a check near the box ‘Label Incoming messages.’ This process will create a separate folder for your AT&T emails
- In case you do not want to configure the above step, then put a checkmark near ‘Archive Incoming Messages’
- Next, click on ‘Add account.’ This will initiate the transferring process of AT&T emails to Gmail. It can depend on the fact of how many emails are stored in your account
