A quick Google search indicates that IMAP is supported.

Who is you ISP and who provides your email server.


It is my understanding the sbcglobal has become a domain name owned by 
ATT, so it should not affect the ability to use IMAP.

My email is sbcglobal and my web mail is accessed on Yahoo, but my email 
goes through ATT servers inbound.att.net and outbound.att.net

      They're the same thing.  AT&T and its subsidiaries don't operate
their own mail server(s).  They use Yahoo for e-mail.  Pinging the
four servers identified in step 6 of post 5 in John's link:
