Reset ATT Email Password


Reset ATT Email Password

I've been through the forums and checked all the links.   The password reset feature requires you to enter a last name.   There is no last name on the record (see below)  The reset feature won't allow a blank field, so what to do?


Also, this email account is a sub account.   I can access the main account, see my sub accounts but the password reset at this level requires knowledge of the prior password.  I know previously I was able to reset passwords from the master account but this is no longer the case.


I've been frustrated through efforts with chat support and phone support in trying to resolve this.


Here's the record from the master email:




There isn't a last name and the password reset requires you to enter one.


You used to be able to manage your sub accounts from the master account.   Now you are asked for the current password before you are able to make changes.




I've been running around in circles and hoping someone has a solution.   I haven't been able to access the account since AT&T stopped allowing you to use outside services for email feeds.

Re: Reset ATT Email Password

Just wanted to post a 'thank you' for the service received to my original post.   I had exhausted other AT&T support outlets and had about given up that the problem ever would be resolved.   To my pleasant surprise, I received a follow-on call by a representative who helped me resolve a 6 month old issue.   Thanks to everyone involved.   I know where I will go for AT&T support in the future.
