How do I setup a subaccount for my email?

I want to add another email account to my service.  I set up a primary email address, but need another one for personal use.

When you're a primary account subscriber to AT&T Yahoo! Broadband, you can create up to 10 sub accounts at no extra cost. Sub accounts can be easily managed and given to family members, roommates, etc. Each sub account comes with its own email address and has a home page that can be customized.


To create a sub account, it can be done by following the instructions below.


Add, Edit, Suspend, or Delete a Sub Account

To manage your sub account, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to myAT&T.
  2. From the myAT&T tab, located at the top of the page, hover over the Profile link, and then select Manage Sub Accounts.
  3. To add a Sub Account, select the Add a Sub Account link and follow the steps to create the account.
  4. To manage a Sub Account, select Edit, Suspend, Remove Suspension, or Delete for any sub accounts listed by selecting the appropriate link. Follow the steps to complete your action.

Important Information about Sub Accounts

  • Only the primary account owner can create sub accounts. If you are not the primary account owner, you will not see the Create New Sub Account link.
  • A primary account owner can have up to 10 active sub accounts and/or 10 suspended sub accounts (for a total of no more than 20).
  • After 90 days, suspended accounts are automatically deleted.
  • Additional steps may be necessary when creating a sub account for a child under age 13.
