Please explain how ATT/Yahoo accounts work with iCloud contacts and calendar

I use ATT/Yahoo for email and iCloud for syncing contacts/calendar.  Do I create 2 accounts for this? One strictly ATT with the email password and a 2nd just for contacts/calendar using Apple ID credentials? The user ID is the same for both, i.e., myname@pacbell.net

Or do I mix passwords in a single account setup?  The User ID is the same for email and iCloud, ie.  name@pacbell.net

For the iCloud stuff how do I know the name of the server for iCloud?

I’ve had 2 accounts forever but did not understand why and it seems redundant. One of your techs got it working last week but it broke after I upgraded to Windows 10 and needed to create new accounts.

thanks.

The accounts need to be setup separately, as each of these items is stored on a different server it is not possible to use a single account with two servers.

Use the automatic setup to setup your pacbell.net account hosted with ATT/Yahoo and follow these instructions on how to setup an iCloud account (make sure however to use your Apple ID/iCloud address to setup the account). http://www.emclient.com/em-with-icloud
