My home email is att.net as provided by my U-verse internet subscription. My daughter still has sbcglobal.net, a nod to the history of the modern ATT, even though she now also has U-verse for internet. For many years both URLs have been supported by the infamous Yahoo, which is now the province of Verizon.
Oh, what a tangled web we weave...
Grownup ISVs try hard to avoid pulling the plug on long-established URLs. I expect the same will obtain if/when ATT gobbles up Time-Warner/Spectrum, which ASAIK still provides roadrunner.com, itself a nod to the eponymous cartoon character. I don't know about attglobal.net, but you're more likely get a new phone number (area code) foisted upon you than a new email address.

I can't find any general announcement that @attglobal.net email is going away. I find it kind of deja vuish though in that @attglobal.net was what @ibm.net got turned into when IBM decided that us peons were diluting their brand. If they really are making everyone that went through that conversion (I think it as 2001 or so) and opted to accept the @attglobal.net addresses change again, I hope people just refuse and take their business elsewhere.
Fool me once, shame on you...

I"m surprised you lost emails. My experience suggests that email
addresses never die. I still get email (mostly spam) that is sent to
my old netscape.net email address forwarded to my current email addresses.

My attglobal.net email went away, and all emails sent there, are
So both the sbgolob.cbttape.org and sbgolob.att.net addresses
are now valid.
I'm trying to make it easier to reach out for CBT Tape
information, and to contact me. Thanks for bearing with me. Dealing
with this was a pain in the neck. I think that AT&T is trying to
get rid of the attglobal.net domain altogether. Now I have to try
and change all the references in the CBT Tape documentation (yecch).
So at least this message gives you a heads-up. My cbttape.org email
address is pointed to, on the home page of www.cbttape.org, as is Sam Knutson's email.
All the best of everything to all of you.....!!!!
