When Earthlink Help Desk cannot solve your issues when working with Earthlink webmail, the next thing you may do is to contact Earthlink’s customer service, isn’t it? As you know that, contacting the Earthlink Customer Service can be a great way to find out the solutions for the problem you encounter.
However, not all problems should be complained to Customer Service, unless your problem is urgent. So, if you get an urgent problem that cannot be solved by the troubleshootings from the Earthlink Help Desk, it’s a great time to contact Earthlink Customer Service.
Contacting Earthlink Customer Service
To contact Earthlink customer service, you can do multiple ways including by phone, by live chat, by SMS, and also by mail. So, make sure to find the best method to contact Earthlink Customer Services as follow:
Making a call to Earthlink Customer Service is performed only when you’re in urgent condition. You can contact them by phone at 866-383-3080. However, each Customer Service division can be contacted in different numbers.
- Home Internet Support can be dialed at 888-327-8454 or SMS Texting at 833-458-4360 from 9:00 A.M to 10:00 P.M ET, 7 days a week.

Support Live Chat will be available at 9:00 A.M to 10:00 PM ET, 7 days a week. Sales Live Chat will also be available from 9:00 A.M to 10:00 PM ET, 7 days a week.
Alternatively, if your problem is not urgent and still can be handled by Earthlink Help Desk, we think that complaining by phone or live chat is not necessary.
Because the Customer Service’s email address is not available, alternatively you can send mail to Earthlink office at 980 Hammond Dr. NE Suite 400 Atlanta, Georgia 30328 with phone number at 404-815-0770.
Okay, those are the methods that you can do if you want to contact the Earthlink Customer Service either by phone, by live chat, by SMS or also by sending mail.
