The new email upgrade Forcing 2 other internet browsers - PROBLEM

I DO NOT appreciate AT&T/ Yahoo FORCING us to select a different internet browser.  I do not and will not use Chrome.  If I wanted my emails with Google, I would have use them initially.  I do not want FireFox.  I have been using Microsoft since personal computers first came out and I do not intend to change now.  I bring work home from my job and need Internet Explorer to work with my Microsoft Office.  I see there are other older folks that feel the same.  I think you need to reconsider your decision if you do not want to lose customers


Below I cannot find a Select Forum for emails, so I guess you don't want to hear these problems

You are not being forced to switch browsers, you can continue using IE, you will just lose some advanced email functionality. Perhaps you should contact Microsoft, they are the ones who decided to switch to Edge and stop updating IE.
