bellsouth.net via yahoo stopped and all attempts to access it failing

Feb 2019: I access my [bell south.net] email via mail.yahoo. Suddenly I was booted out and all attempts to access via reset with temp password are not recognized both on yahoo and att.net.

 

1)  I cleared cache, removed cookies, restarted, rebooted. Still not recognized in the yahoo app.; 

2)  Using the [Att.net ], new password requested, but not accepted by yahoo. It's as if I got dropped off yahoo.

 

Trying to find the right path to get this corrected:

When entering a "USERID" on [At t. net ]to access the email account, it's not clear if I am to use the original username from an A T T  account  ("  &accountname@bellsouth.net."  or, the email  "...&emailname@bellsouth.net" as the user name.  At this point I think I'm locked out and seem to have no way to contact att or whoever to get it straightened out.  It was my impression that A T T gave the bell south.net to yahoo to manage.  But I read this from an att internet page:  

 

"....  Please note that there are no changes planned for your AT&T email account. Your access to your AT&T email (att.net, sbcglobal.net, bellsouth.net, etc.) does not change as it is part of the AT&T family and not owned by Yahoo. You can still access your AT&T email from att.net..

WHO CAN RESET THIS BELL SOUTH ACCOUNT,  att or or yahoo???  Any reset instructions from att don't seem to work.  I no longer have an att phone or internet service

Yahoo mail does not recognize my bellsouth.net email. I have had this email address for almost 20 years. Ever since yahoo took over bellsouth.net email, I've had nothing but trouble. Can i just close that account and create a new one. I know i'm using the correct login. I have a password keeper that i use.
