Re: Close email account

We can't help with sbcglobal accounts. Why not just ignore it and it will disappear after a year of non use.

 

Get help with an AT&T, Frontier, Verizon, BT, Sky, Rogers, Spark, or MTS account or password

 

If you have a Yahoo Mail account through one of the Internet service providers (ISPs) mentioned above and need assistance with your Internet connection, updating your password, or unlinking your Yahoo Account your ISP can help.

However, we’ll maintain your access to Flickr, Tumblr, Fantasy Sports, Yahoo Groups and My Yahoo for a few more months. You must transfer all information you wish to save to a new separate Yahoo account. There is no change to email.

Want to separate your accounts? Contact your ISP with your Internet user ID and ask them to unmerge or unlink your Internet and Yahoo accounts.

Feel free to reply if my question or answer is not clear. Include @Barkley_Hound in the post.
I do not work for Yahoo and my postings are just my opinion based on experience.
Make sure your phone and email are current. There is no way to verify or recover an account without them.

Re: Close email account

Thank you.     I'll pursue it with AT&T   I really want to close the account because its not my primary account and I'm recently getting lots of spam.
