Can't log in. It says too many attempts?

I've tried everything.  Changed my password multiple times. Tried logging in from different browsers. I've canceled all of the "auto-save" passwords from Chrome and Edge. Frustrated beyond all descriptions. And then that stupid little "chat" option...that is a computerized bot that doesn't know jack (Edited per community guidelines)!!! If anyone can help, I sure would appreciate it. Have had this e-mail address for at least 30 years. Sure hate to drop ATT and go to something else.

Hey @fcallison, we understand how frustrating it is to constantly reset your password. Let's take a look together.


The 205 error code you're seeing is essentially due to bad actors who have been trying to access AT&T email accounts. We're aware this is happening, and are currently working towards a resolution. Learn more about the 205 error code and what we're doing to fix it.

In the meantime, we recommend following these troubleshooting steps:

Clear your browser's cache and cookies to remove any stored password information. Be sure to close and re-open your browser after doing so.

  1. Open your browser.
  2. Press Ctrl+Shift+Delete.
  3. Select the items you want to clear.
  4. Select the Delete, OK, Clear, or Clear data button, depending on your browser type.
  5. Close and reopen your browser.

Reset your pasword using the Forgot password option.

  1. Go to att.com/myatt.
  2. Select Forgot password?
  3. Fill out the password info.
  4. Choose security questions or temporary password and follow the prompts. If you choose a temporary password, we’ll let you know where we sent it.
  5. Create your new password.

Let us know if you need anything else.
