It’s easy to delete your AT&T email account without canceling your service. When you sign up for any AT&T services such as the internet or phone services, AT&T will automatically provide you an @att.net email address. The AT&T email address allows you to receive important news and information about your account status, such as billing details and rate plan offers.
Close AT&T email account
Not everyone will like to use their AT&T email account. If you would like to close your AT&T email account, you can do so without canceling your service. Att.net mail service is powered by the Yahoo! Mail webmail platform. The deletion process to close your AT&T email account is the same as it is with Yahoo!.
Launch your browser and open the att.net web page. If you are not already logged in, click the “Log In” button in the upper-right corner of your screen and sign in to your account by filling in your login and password.
Go to the following link: https://edit.yahoo.com/config/delete_user. This will redirect you to the account deletion page. Enter your password to confirm your identity.
After confirming your account, AT&T will lead you to a page explaining what you stand to lose if you should go ahead to delete your account. If you wish to continue, click on the “Terminate this Account” button.
