Re: Yahoo Email Support

This sounds like it's something that can be done using the att yahoo member center

I went back to »att.yahoo.com/myaccount and searched all around.

When logged into the particular secondary account, I see no way to rename the account.

Logged into the main email account, I can go to "manage sub accounts". There I can edit or disable a sub account. Disable makes a email to an associated disposable address bounce.

I can create an email alias for the sub account, but I feel confident that the original email address would still be valid.

But I still see no way to rename an account. I don't even see way to delete an account. I was going to try deleting and see if I could recreate the associated disposable email address root on a different secondary account.

Thanks for the suggestion. I would like to think I have just missed
clicking the right thing, but I don't think so. I think this needs
higher level action if it is achievable at all.

AFAIK, that is not possible. Once the base part of an AddressGuard address is deleted, it can't be re-used. Per the instructions and warnings (I blew one away by accident).
