Secure Mail Key for Subaccounts
I have four email subaccounts with @Sbcglobal.net... My main account (as shown on my bill, I never use.) But have used it for the myATT website profile. I think when I started with Sbcglobal DSL this email address was used as a "control" for all of the subaccounts. May still be, but I know some things changed over the years. (since 2005)
From the email that I just received it appears I need to get secure mail keys.. I have scoured this forum to see what other people were saying. I have been to myAT&T website and it is trying to get me to link accounts. I don't think I want to do that. One of my subaccounts is missing from the list that can be linked anyway.
I use Mozilla Thunderbird with all my subaccounts.. Set up POP3. I want to keep TB, but looks like I need to use secure keys.
Here's my question: To create secure mail keys for subaccounts do I need to create a profile @ myAT&T for EACH account? (Using the account for the user ID and the password associated with that account.)
I did not know I could have multiple PROFILES on myAT&T. My email is working fine and I don't want to screw things up. It just seems weird to have multiple PROFILES @ myAT&T.
I have read the info online about getting keys, but it is all a little confusing. I don't think AT&T / YAHOO is addressing the use of subaccounts at all. I saw a post by "BeSketicalOfAll" on Sept 20 at 7:08. They are having nearly the exact same problem as me. -- But the issue of multiple myAT&T PROFILES was not mentioned. Only that they need to create a secure key for EACH subaccount.
