    Keep email addy after cancelling AT&T DSL
    We have to cancel our AT&T DSL, but do not want to lose a long-held @bellsouth.net email address. Will this address stay active now that Yahoo! is hosting the email, or will it be cancelled along with the DSL service? Been trying to determine if this will happen. I've seen both answers, so I'm hoping to get an official answer from an AT&T rep. Thanks!

    As long as your Primary Member ID (and associated Sub Accounts) are assigned to the AT&T powered by Yahoo portal/email platform, you will NOT lose portal/email access if you choose to disconnect your DSL service. You'll still be able to use your email address(es). If the ID(s) is still assigned to the my.att.net (old Bellsouth) portal/email platform, different rules apply and depending on your region, the ID(s) will eventually be cancelled/terminated.

    very well said! :smileyhappy:

     

    as long as your email accounts are all migrated to the AT&T powered by Yahoo portal/email, you WILL be able to keep them even after terminating the DSL service.

    Do you know if this also applies to the @swbell.net address. I figure you will be able to keep the @yahoo.com address, but the @swbell.net address is the one we have been using for 12 years.

    hi kcchalk!

    i believe it also applies to the @swbell.net and other AT&T email IDs, as long as they are already on the powered by the Yahoo! portal/server.
