    My Yahoo/AT&T account is spam-based, ads up the wazoo. So "free," but not free.

    I guess that is the answer, as long as I put up with the spamming things I can get service. I will saw quite a number of them, a majority, are caught up in spam control. And then every week I unsubscribe to dump stuff that comes through.

    You can't avoid these ads--they masquerade as incoming posts.

    Oh yeah, spam blocker is a treasure.
    These are special, though.

    So, I'm on the opposite end of this deep question, because I never in my mind attached my yahoo account to my AT&T account. I moved from NJ to VT and never did a thing, but I did bring AT&T with me. I guess it's web-based, as others have said. Now, Comcast gave me an email account, and Apple gave me a Mac account, but I never use those. I did sign up for a gmail account so I could forward all those "sign up for 15% off" banners on commerce sites I want to browse.

    I am 99% sure nothing would happen to my email address if I closed my AT&T account.

    I never merged my AT&T account with a Yahoo account either. I'm just lucky, I guess.

    I don’t know that I took any action to actually get a Yahoo account, but I have a yahoo account that keeps showing up in various times and places.
