Last night my computer was hacked or compromised somehow and sent a bunch of emails "Hey, this reminds me of you" in the subject line. So I deleted my contacts, changed my password, and am running a complete scan, which at 2 hrs 34 minutes has not found anything (Malwarebytes full scan).
When I try to email using the Yahoo Att email, I get the following message. When I click on the link in the message, it goes to a page that has been moved as it has no info other than a link to Communities. What do I need to do to remove this block? I looked at the options and checked the sig and blocked emails.

James, thanks for your help. I had already found that particular FAQ and have gone through its steps so I sent the private message and hopefully support will have an answer.

I have the same problem which started this morning 2/4/13. I reviewed all of the recommended steps and found no problems with my account settings.
I am receiving emails OK. My wife's sub account is unaffected.
I have sent a private message.

A followup to my previous email to possibly help with troubleshooting this issue.
While I cannot send emails from my ATT webmail, I can send email messages from my Thunderbird email client. This is also true with my wife's ATT email sub account but unlike me can send emails from her ATT webmail account.
This is just a temporary work around as I only have Thunderbird installed on my home desktop.
Finally, we are in the process of migrating our programs and files to Win7 OS - any relation to that?

I ma having the same issue with my att email and all my sub accounts - is it time to drop att email / and yahoo and just go with gmail or other email account? 4 hours online help with ATT - but to no avail still have the problem. Too bad for att if they can't rememdy this, they will lose lots of customers for it.

Had the same problem. Turns out it was Yahoo's new mail interface. It doesn't give you the option to input the code to verify you are not a spammer. Revert to Classic mail from Options and then send an email to someone and it will let you verify with a code. You should just have to verify once.
