unable to reset bellsouth email, don’t remember security questions

I have had a email address for decades, however as of a month ago I am unable to sign in, reset my password, or add it as a login ID on AT&T. I have many important documents being sent to this address and I am unable to access them. I continually receive the "CARE CODE: 205.2 [LU003]" error when resetting the password, and when logging in I am bounced between AT&T and Currently with no success
