Is Yahoo really trying to take over att.net email? All of a sudden one day all my at&t email was transferred to a Yahoo account. What happened? I had to start my AT&T email from scratch. What is going on? How do I get the Yahoo mail back to. AT&T?

Also, hover over where it says click here and note this address shows up:grasshopperstreet.com/css/universitymail.html

definately not at&t.

also any mails like this first look at the header info on the mail and google the ip addresses that it

displayes.
