When I signed up with ATT internet/home phone about 4 years ago, I was given a Yahoo/Sbcglobal email account. I have been hacked at my sbcglobal.net account and when I try to reset my password, I am sent to the Att website(which recently changed so actually I am sent again to the new Att website(grrrrrrrr). I changed the password for my Att account(which I knew then would only change it for my true Att internet/home phone account, not my email, but that was the only option for changing a password that I was given), and of course my sbcglobal.net password is still the same. Please help this is so very frustrating. I hope all of this makes sense.

I have the same problem. I got the ATT staff to expunge the sbcglobal account, but, like u said, it's still spamming all these people because i can't change the password..

Hope it works for you.

Thank you SO MUCH! I didn't think I was ever going to get out of the loop nightmare described by others.

This is now 2014 and this link still works to allow me change my email password as well as my ATT password.

Thanks - that link works, BUT
even changing my password has not stopped the onslaught of Mailer--Daemon emails in my Spam folder. Today it was over 700 of them. Any ideas? I had hoped changing password would take care of this spam problem. Basically I think AT&T/Yahoo/SBC is one hot mess

I have the same issue with my sbcglobal.net account as above, but unfortunately nothing allows me to change the password. Worse, the account is locked by AT&T and I am no longer their customer! I have called them to no avail.... Any ideas on how to reset the account password would be greatly appreciated!

I have the same problem. Called AT&T help and did not receive an answer. They can't seem to understand that changing your AT&T password does not change Yahoo password. I am
not sure what to do next. I cancelled my internet but retained my sbcglobal account. Is that the problem?
