Hi there and welcome
Can you tell me please what happened when you tried to change your password?
Is there anyway to ge the att.net account active?
Why they have done this is because a hacker tried to access your account, this is why you have this issue. But the att account. Why was it closed or are you able to regain access to this by resetting the password?
Please do not shoot the messenger with what I am going to tell you.
It is critical that you always keep a working recovery email with your account. The reason is at anytime AOL (or any other email provider) and require you to verify yourself as they aredoing now. As you are not able to complete this, then (and this is serious) you will need to make a new account as you will not be able to regain access to this one.
There is no support by AOL (or any of the large email service providers) as it is a free service and thhey have millions of accounts
I am really sorry but you need to create a new account, and use a recovery email address that is working. It is critical you always ensure that there is a valid email account linkedto it.
You can make a new account for free via my link below
I am really sorry about this, and again ask to take into consideration when rating my service that I can only tell you the reality of the situation.
If you would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
