I recently lost my XP OS and can not recover my email account.
It seems the password and secret access word are no longer valid.

How can I prove to AT&T that I am the subscriber via another method?

If AT&T is your ISP...that's between you and them. IMO.

They have their admin/security policies and that is not a Windows issue of any sort.

Every secure site has its own policies regarding such, be it a bank, an email account, whatever.

I would say telephonic contact, if all else fails.

As mentioned above. You have to call them and ask them how to verify. You are the one paying them so there should be a way.
