By merging your new SBC Yahoo! ID with your existing Yahoo! ID, you are able to get new levels of storage in your existing Yahoo! Mail, Yahoo! Briefcase, and Yahoo! Photos. You also combine your @yahoo.com and SBC email addresses into one mailbox that you can download or view all at once.

If you do not merge your existing Yahoo ID, you can access the expanded Mail, Briefcase, and Photos storage by using your SBC ID to log into Yahoo, but these services will not be combined with your existing Yahoo mail account and briefcase.

Please note: If you map your existing Yahoo! account to your SBC Yahoo! account and then cancel your SBC Yahoo! service in the future, there will be a maintenance fee to retain your existing Yahoo! ID. You will be charged a maintenance fee of $9.95 per month to retain your existing Yahoo! ID and preserve your mail, addresses, calendar items, and personalized services. If you cancel your SBC Yahoo! service and do not wish to pay the maintenance fee, your data will be deleted or you may transfer some of your existing data to a new Yahoo! account with a different Yahoo ID.

If you decide to transfer your personal settings to a new Yahoo! ID, Yahoo! will give you step by step instructions automatically.

Also be aware that you can only merge a Yahoo ID while registering/migrating your primary account, or creating/migrating a subaccount. You can't change your mind or unmerge, so choose carefully.

If you choose to merge:
You can sign onto Yahoo using your full SBC email address, or the Yahoo ID you merged.

The merge process will set the combined account's password to your existing SBC password, but you can change it at any time afterwards.

  • This seems out of date http://helpme.att.net/article.php?item=6756 Now says: "Please note: If you map your existing Yahoo! account to your AT&T account, in the future, you can continue to use your Yahoo! ID even if you decide to cancel your AT&T service." In the past I had canceled my SBCglobal account and was able to retain my yahoo account. Though there were some bugs. I was kicked out of 360 (a free service) for awhile. I just lost the extras like pop access and launch cast, etc. -Andrew
