Is the following a legitmate request?

You can get this email if you have created any sub account under your AT&T primary email address. This email used to authenticate the sub account that is created. If you have create any sub AT&T Yahoo! account, you can click on the verification link on that email.
However, if you have not created any sub account then this is phishing email and don't click any of the link that email. The phishing email can be forwarded to "" for further investigation.
