How to Reset your Email Password using myAT&T

 

You are here because you can't sign in to your email or you forgot one of your many passwords. Resetting your password is one of the fastest solutions. Let's get started!

How To Change Your Password

Go to www.att.com or use the myAT&T app:

  1. Login to the myAT&T app, scroll, and select "My plans & features"

  2. Hit the "plus" button next to your service and select "Manage my network & email"

  3. Select "Change Email Password" 

Note: If you are still unable to log in after resetting your password, wait 12 hours for the system to update and try again.

Security Questions Help & Free Accounts

If you recently attempted to reset your password, you can use your account at www.att.com to reset it. Please note:

  • The email must be tied to an active account for a password reset to work
  • Free emails do not have the option to reset via an att.com unless there is an account tied to it

Free Email 

A free email is a standalone email account that once was tied to an AT&T account. Once that account is canceled, AT&T no longer has the ability to reset your password. In order to reset your password, you must use your security questions to reset it

If you do not remember your security questions/ answers. AT&T WILL NOT reset your account. This is done to protect personal information since we cannot validate the email address. It is like giving away the keys to your car without verifying it is belongs to you.  AT&T currently has no workaround for these types of issues and is unable to assist.

Hi @johndp,

 

Your email will convert to a free email account. However, is you have services that were disconnected due to billing issues then those billing issues will need to be addressed to regain access to the email account. Visit this link for more information about "Free Accounts".

I have several Prodigy.net e-mail accounts via AT&T.  I haven't been online much this weekend and just noticed that the 2 primary use accounts have not sync'd/received new e-mails since Friday.  Also, my home page, while allowing me to see my.yahoo.com, isn't the usual layout or background picture.  When I try to sign in to work with my accounts, it won't accept my password.  To reset my password, I have to use a temporary password which is being mailed to...you got it...my account that won't sync...so I don't have the temporary password, either.

Oh, and of course, the "customer service" phone number takes me to a voice message that says they're closed!
What's up and how do I get this working again?

When I moved from dsl to uverse, att cancelled my dsl line. The userid is no longer linked to my MAIN email account.  My main email account is linked to nothing.  I have no access to it!!!   I cannot reset this email password.  I know the subaccount passwords, just not password to the main account. HELP

  Once att cancelled my dsl account, the userid and password are no longer linked.  No matter how many times i reset the userid password, it doesn't touch the email password.

 

This cancelled access to my MAIN email account.  I do NOT remember the password for this account evidently.

I need to reset my Bellsouth email account.  I dont remember connecting it to my ATT Internet account or Direct TV.  But it says it is.  How in the world do i reset the password?  I am losing access to valuable emails everyday. 

 

Is there a number i can call and they can reset it for me?

Hi @Kelly0304,

 

This article has information on how you can change your password. It also works for free accounts.
