Email coming in with prodigy address instead of my att.net address

Yesterday I noticed some of my incoming email addressed to a prodigy account instead of my att.net email address.  What is going on?

Me too. And it seems to bypass all filters.

Re: Email coming in with prodigy address instead of my att.net address

We've changed all of our att.net passwords, run all our antivirus, tried more than one browser and pc and operating system (eg android) and it appears as if it's happening at the yahoo server level.  This needs a response from ATT or Yahoo.   Some come in with various prodigy email addresses instead of ours and some come in with the correct id and occasionally those that came in with correct id are then changing to the prodigy email address when we look at them later.  An example:  ***

Glad to know it is not just me.

Yes, that looks like what I am seeing. I hope someone from ATT monitors this site.

I hope so too - don't know how to get their attention unless there's more activity on your original post.

Surely this is some form of hack.  I'm worried about sending email and infecting those to whom I send email

It just happens on some of my email. What about you?

Yes - some of it never changes, some of it comes in (or goes out) with the prodigy id and some remains correct to my email address(es)

And the prodigy address keeps changing - the numbers change as I described above.

If you're reading this and seeing the same problem, please note it, and reply somewhere in this thread.  If there's notc enough activity I doubt someone from ATT will reply.

Re: Email coming in with prodigy address instead of my att.net address

Yes, this is definitely what I'm seeing. Most emails are still addressed to me, but a few are addressed to the address ending in prodigy.net--and those emails don't go to my Inbox: instead they go to Archive or Junk. My Amazon account is now compromised as well. Please, AT&T, address this problem!

In my case, the false address begins with h.r@alph . . . The numbers following alph vary--143, 148, 148. Always ends in prodigy.net

I'm having the same issue and have been very concerned all morning. I visited my bank to verify my account hasn't had any unauthorized activity, it hasn't! If anyone gets to the bottom of this please respond so we can all get some peace of mind.
