I'm moving this thread to the Email forum.

Possible?  As ATTHelp Jarod pointed out, sure.

The real question is should you?  Take a look at the disaster that the Yahoo/AT&T email service has been in the last year by looking at the posts in this forum.  Then decide if you really want to trust any important correspondence to Yahoo/AT&T.
