SBC was previously known as the Southwestern Bell Company but since 2005 after rebranding it is only known as SBC.  SBC bought AT&T in 2005 and decided to use its brand name since it was more famous. This is how the company was now branded as AT&T. AT&T’s relationship with Google deteriorated and they decided to move all their webmail clients to Yahoo. However, before all of this happened some people had already registered for the SBC legacy email addresses so these users were the first one to be moved to AT&T.
