Verification code.

I am trying to access an att.com email. When I attempt to sign in through currently.com ‘s yahoo controls.. it request a verification code. It sends the code to the email I’m attempt to access. I don’t have access to the account, so I can’t give them the verification code. Conflict!

We understand your frustration regarding your ability to login, and we want to help clarify this for you, @bitshane!


Are you getting any type of error message when trying to login? If this error is the 205 error code, then we have some information regarding it for you.

 

The 205 error code is due to bad actors who are trying to access AT&T email accounts. We're aware that this is happening to quite a few people, and we're currently working on a resolution. You can get more information about why this is happening and what we're doing to fix it in our article that discusses the dreaded 205 error code.


Since you've already tried to reset your password, we'd like to invite you to a Direct Message in order to authenticate you and get you logged back into your email.


Please keep an eye out for a notification in the upper right corner of the screen. We look forward to speaking with you.

There is no error. I sign in with my account and password, it says it wants to verify I am who I am, and sends an email to the account I'm trying to access with a verification code. I don't have access to the account I'm simply trying to get into it, how can I get the code from an account that I'm trying to get in?
