Let's help with your email access, @lcnar78.

The 205 error code you're seeing is essentially due to bad actors who have been trying to access AT&T email accounts. We're aware that this is happening, and are currently working toward a resolution. Learn more about the dreaded 205 error code and what we're doing to fix it.

In the meantime, we recommend following the troubleshooting options below:
