How do I delete/deactivate an sbcglobal.net email account?
I have an old (15 years +) sbcglobal email account that only gets spam these days and I've long since been using a different email service as my primary. I want to delete the sbcglobal account because it was part of a data breach not too long ago and even after changing the password, I don't trust it. Sbcglobal is no longer around obviously and as I understand it, Yahoo purchased sbcglobal and then AT&T currently services these accounts. I've tried logging into Yahoo and AT&T to delete this account but there's no option to do that. Either through Yahoo or AT&T. I've called customer service with both companies. Yahoo refers me to AT&T and AT&T tells me there's only "self-help" options to delete these email accounts. The article which walks you through how to delete your AT&T email seems to apply to AT&T email accounts but not necessarily to old email accounts like sbcglobal.net which are only serviced by AT&T. This is the link I've tried: https://www.att.com/support/article/email-support/KM1010448/
I get hung up because on the AT&T Profile page after I log in, there's no section titled "Contact Info" and when I go through all the available links, there's nothing available to me about deleting or deactivating the account.
So apparently I'm stuck with it. This email address has been hacked before and even after explaining the security risk to AT&T and myself, they still have no viable solution to delete this email. Does anyone have experience deleting these accounts or is AT&T/Yahoo just woefully inadequate when it comes to servicing these accounts?
