This is obviously some sort of spoof. If you look at the underlying
address to the link, it isn't an AT&T address. It starts out
with something like times.yahoo.com and then has a huge sub page
address spanning 4 lines in a normal text editor's edit field.
I would contact AT&T and see what they have to say, but I would
never use that type of link in an e-mail to access what is supposed
to be a site from a company or server to which I had a subscription.

First, did you follow the link given in the e-mail or did you
go directly to your account using a link you know is safe, not a
link in the message? That is the first question. The other
questions can be discussed later. Maybe there is no way to
change what you are looking for because you did follow a real,
known valid, link. This sort of immediate suspension wording
should make you very suspicious. its wording you would expect
from a spam message that is trying to panic users into going to
a phony site and giving information.

I got the below message from A T and T says they will
require a code instead of password on some email clients. I
tried to find where to get this code but was unable to find the
right place. I just kept going in circles. Anyone else that has
an A T and T email address been successful in doing so? Here is
Yahoo Mail member,
