According to provision of Term and conditions, BellSouth may at anytime terminate it's service for accounts..

Remember, never click on a link to sign into your BellSouth AT&T Yahoo account, always go directly to https://www.bellsouth.net, click on the "Mail" icon and sign-in from there instead. Once they have signed in, they will be notified of an upgrade or important changes if there are any.
For BellSouth/AT&T/Yahoo users who have already been tricked, they should attempt to change their passwords immediately before their accounts are hijacked and used fraudulently. For those users whose accounts have already been hijacked, they should contact BellSouth/AT&T for help.
