can no longer sign in to my flash.net e-mail account

I had no problem accessing my flash.net account yesterday and today I can't sign in on any device.  It won't accept my password and if I say "forgot password" it returns a message that says "we can't sign you in right now. Please to try again later."

 

This is very frustrating!  How can I get to my e-mail account?

Re: can no longer sign in to my flash.net e-mail account

Hi @majorv,

A security upgrade is coming to AT&T email, so if you have certain email programs or apps, you’ll have to update your settings. Learn more about the security upgrade. If your program or app is affected, be sure to create a secure mail key. You’ll need it to set up or keep getting your AT&T email with a desktop program or mobile app.

Re: can no longer sign in to my flash.net e-mail account

I tried this with my flash.net accounts, and it didnt work on WindowsLive Mail.  That's the program I use and am most comfortable with.  WHY are you changing things?  I've had these addresses for almost 20 years, and am seriously considering cancelling my account because of these changes.  I have five email addresses for myself and family, and have always had the option to use POP so I didn't have to go into my browser to check these emails.  Now, either I get that stupid 'key' (which didn't work) or I have to use webmail.  Nope.  So what should I do?

Well, it's checking again.  You people need to fix your email servers.  And give us a system status page that's updated when there's a problem please. so that we don't have to scour the net looking for answers.

Then don't use the password or OAuth and try a secure mail key instead.  Read this (which includes a link to how to create a secure mail key).

Actually, to get access to my flash.net account back I had to call AT&T customer support, and they reset my password. I think whatever changes they’re making can affect your account, because I did not get locked out for forgetting my password.
