AT&T New Mail

New_Email.jpgStarting September 5th, 2018 all .net ‘webmail’ customers will start to receive notifications about an upcoming email upgrade starting in October.  This new mail experience only affects ‘desktop’ webmail users and will include a more responsive ‘search’ capability, easier to use ‘settings’ menu, overall improved views, and much more!

 

FAQ:

When will I upgrade?

AT&T New Mail will begin to rollout to AT&T users October 2018.

 

Do I have to upgrade?

Yes, the planned upgrade will affect all desktop webmail users. 

 

What is changing?

Only the user interface for ‘desktop’ webmail.  The new email upgrade is designed to take advantage of today’s more modern and supported browsers.

 

What must I do to prepare for the upgrade?

The upgrade is simple - nothing in your email, folders, notes, calendar, or address book is changing. Your mailbox is only upgrading to a new and improved look and feel.  

 

If you’re using FireFox, Chrome, and/or a Mac based browser, just sit back, and relax. If you’re currently using Internet Explorer and or a Microsoft Edge browser older than 15.x then please upgrade your browser to a supported browser.

I hope you put the new email counts back on all the folders. I use filters to sort my mail, and to put the cursor on every folder to see if I received email is very time consuming.

Ladies and Gentlemen:

 

I am already experiencing delays in senders E-Mails getting to my Inbox.  These delays have been upwards of one solar day!  

Since I am a job seeker, such a 24 hour lag can be detrimental in my job search.  

I hope that whatever improvements you make serve to eliminate such problems.

Yahoo (the company responsible for the largest data breech in the history of the world) is like a cancer that can not be stopped.  No, I won't change my browser.

Although I thought I clicked the link to go directly to "leave comment" I had to wind my way here.  And it is not exactly clear that here is where I intended to be. 

 

Nevertheless:

 

Sigh.  Every time the techy whizzes decide to fix what is working fine, it gets all screwed up.   Yup.  Currently dealing with the "new and better" from my CU.  Hasn't worked right for me since they dumped this on us.  So now y'all are messin' with my email.  I really had hoped to leave this "you figure this system out and we'll change it" routine at the office.  No. It followed me home.  Maw? I don't want to keep it....

I'm happy enough (or is that unhappy enough? or maybe frustrated enough??) with the old and at least somewhat reliable.

 

Quit messin' with your customers!

TO EVERYONE ON HERE:

 

As someone who worked for AT&T for many, many, many years going back to before divestiture, I can tell you that this forum is nothing more than a place for customers to vent their complaints and frustrations. No problems will get resolved. If you’re able to accept that fact then your frustration level on this site will be a little less. The phrase “It is what it is” perfectly describes AT&T and most big companies today. You can take it or leave it, none of them care!

I get my Yahoo mail through ATT.  I hate to sign in several times just to get to my mail. And sometimes I have to go through the "I Am Not A Robot" routine just to get in. It is so frustrating.

The last time you had an update, I lost all my Yahoo Mail Folders, and my contacts on the address book. I had a lot of information in my folders and I have no idea what I lost.

The other thing I hate is all that SPAM. 25% is legitimate mail, the other 75% is all spam--including ads for Russian  ladies of the night (I had to go to my settings to block those).

I certainly hope this "NEW" update is simple, error free, and helpful to us the people...

When are we going to be able to use secure complex passwords so we are not hacked again? Using only numbers and letters if very 1999 - I need a partner that will provide this. What are your plans for password complexity?

So, this phrase at the bottom of each of our posts, is meaningless:

Please let me know when you get a “personal” email response from Randall, CEO at AT&T. I won’t be holding my breath waiting, however. Lol

I cannot wait to drop AT&T like a bad habit when their competitor runs fiber through our neighborhood. Been paying $60 a month for DSL becubec there were no other options. AT&T ran fiber to a development just miles from our neighborhood and wouldn't bring it to us. Counting down the days!

I just wish the IMAP servers would stop failing.  Over the past 10 days (about Sept 7 through today), I have been unable to access email from phone, tablet or Thunderbird multiple, multiple times -- in the past 24 hours, I was unable to access from around 3 p.m. yesterday until tonight around 9 p.m. Fortunately the web console is fine. And I would really like more control over the spam settings.
