Recent massive failure in Sp*m filtering

About three weeks ago, I started getting flooded with Sp*m. I have spoken with other ATT based e-mail users who have experienced the same. It looks like Current/Yahoo stopped filtering Sp*m. There does not seem to be a way to contact either of those companies to get the issue resolved. Can someone at ATT help us out. It is nearly a third of my e-mail at this point. Setting filters does not help because senders never use the same domain twice.

🤣🤣  How could they not be well aware of these issues?  Not sure how this is newsworthy. That "technical service rep" is just reciting the script telling us exactly what we've all known for months.

Like I said, there's absolutely zero reason for anyone to have to forward the spam to the abuse dept.  That suggestion alone is telling me that the "rep" has no clue and is just placating users by making it seem they have some hand in stopping the spam.

Everything that is in the headers is easily available to a network engineer through the server logs.  If they are "well aware" of the problem, they can watch that data in real time!  Why on earth would they need another copy from any of us?  That's total 🐂💩.

The only ones I forward to them are the ones that get on my PC and it is all done without me touching anything through the filter I have set up, so there isn't any addition requirement from me.

Hi, all. First, at someone’s recommendation I set up a filter to send any emails to trash that don’t have the @ symbol, and it seems to be working for now! So, try that.

As far as having to keep signing in, apparently it’s a known issue for those using Microsoft Edge. I’m having much more success signing in with Google Chrome, as much as I hate using it.

This issue is browser agnostic, especially since the problem is at AT&T's end.  It may seem that certain browsers work better but that's because the timing of the login issue is so varied.  Some see it multiple times a day then don't get it for a day or two. Others see it every two weeks, then all of a sudden every couple of days.

Hey guys, you should not have to set filters at your computer level because they should be caught at the ISP level where you set filters, that are currently turned off.  Sending any of these to ATT is worthless because as i experienced, you get a return email that states: this did not originate from an ATT account so there is nothing we can do.  I'm tired of the "pro att aces building their post count" here that want to defend Yahoo and ATT.  Please stop, your not helping us and you dont represent ATT with real facts!

Sorry that I have not responded sooner, someone has cut me off from receiving post notification updates.  Remember: its all about the money!

@edcuccia Go to your profile settings and check your setting and see if you have everything set correctly.

Ahhhhh, I see you got the "bad actors" customer service response.  That is the party line they seem to be told to tell everyone.

Care to point out any of us that are defending Yahoo and AT&T?  I've been saying exactly the same thing you just did, in fact, scroll up a few comments to see the last time I did.

@edcuccia  Can you point out where any of the ACE's have defended AT&T/Yahoo? In fact, quite the opposite is true. Most of us have basically been saying that this whole email issue is one giant cluster frack  that AT&T and/or Yahoo don't seem to want to correct. Some have actually pointed out some options other than AT&T.
