Reporting of Violations of Policy

AT&T's AUP Enforcement Team receives complaints about alleged violations of the Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) by AT&T subscribers. The team investigates the complaint to determine whether or not AT&T policies have been violated and takes action accordingly. Results of the investigation are not disclosed in order to protect the privacy of the customer.

We can only assist with Spam that originates from AT&T Internet Services IP addresses. If you are reporting Spam believed to originate from a AT&T subscriber, we must have the full e-mail header from the original message in order to investigate the complaint. You must provide the header information from the original message and paste it into the body of the e-mail when you forward the original message with your complaint. We cannot accept attachments. When we receive your complaint, we will investigate the situation and take appropriate action based on the results of the investigation.


To report your complaint, please forward the suspected Spam e-mail to abuse@att.net. and remember to copy and paste the full e-mail header from the message into the body of the e-mail.
