I use ATT DSL. I have a sbcglobal.net email account that I do not use. I use gmail instead. Can I delete the sbcglobal.net account without creating problems? The sbcglobal account just collects spam and is available for hacking simply because it exists. Yes...I suffer from OCD
You are aware that AT&T sends service change notices to that 'sbcglobal.net' email account?
You don't have to get rid of it; I know a couple of folks who never use theirs.
But when AT&T updates the AUP/ToS, don't whine about not being notified of the update. A lot of people missed the SBC announcement of port 25 blocking because they never looked at their email. -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
AT&T wouldn't know to send to a 'gmail.com' account. A user can configure either a "push" (forward from AT&T/Yahoo! account to Gmail account), or a "pull" (Gmail account POP from AT&T/Yahoo! account). Either method gets email addressed to '@sbcglobal.net' into the Gmail account mailbox. -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
