my sbcglobal.net email

I get emails all the time telling me my sbcglobal.net email is outdated and that unless I update I will be locked out.    I have ignored these emails believing that they are phishing and I should not click on any links provided. but I a

m beginning to wonder if there might be something I need to do.    Can you tell me ?

There are two emails going around and unfortunately your description isn't specific enough for me to positively determine which one you got.  If it's talking about updating your security info then that's legit.  If it's claiming your account will be closed by a certain date if you don't update, that's a PHISHING scam designed to steal your login credentials.

It's best to be positive so copy/paste the actual email here and we'll be able to tell you for certain.

Oh, I'm moving this thread to the Email forum.

I will copy and paste but from your description of the 2 scenarios I will go with the phishing.    Thanks,

Thanks, those are definitely the phishing emails.  Delete, but be prepared to see more in the upcoming days. 

They've stopped putting drop dead dates for the account and now it's "today".  Wonder what tomorrow's will say?  🤣
