Hey there @gary3917. We'd be happy to help you. 

 

If you are planning to use 3rd Party Email Clients - this would be considered any other website or application outside of Currently - you may need to look into Open Authentication or Secure Mail Key to make sure you are able to stay logged in.

 

Open Authentication is a security measure we put in place that encrypts your email and password when using 3rd Party email clients. We have an article regarding OAuth that states what application work with this security system. 

 

if the 3rd Party email client you're using is not in that list, you'll need to create a Secure Mail Key. This is a security measure that encrypts your password, and you are able to create and manage it via myAT&T. You will then use your Secure Mail Key as your password when logging into any 3rd Party programs or applications, while you login to any AT&T sites will stay the same. 

 

If you're needing the information for service settings, we suggest using IMAP for your 3rd Part email client. 

 

Let us know if this helps.
