Why do I keep getting a box pop up with an a "busy" message in the new email

I just got switched over to the new email format which I am still getting use to.  Now, I constantly get a box that pops up - it says:  

 

att.net Mail

Did you change your email service to or from AT&T about a year or so ago?

 

Trueswitch is a utility you would have installed to assist you when you transfered your email account.

 

They ceased providing software directly to consumers in May of 2013, but it is possible AT&T is using it still to move you to the "New" ATT/Yahoo mail.

 

You might check your installed programs for Trueswitch and uninstall it.

 

You could try clearing your browser history, cache, and cookies.

 

 

You can also go to your email page, click the little gear in the upper right and choose settings. On the left of the settings page, click on accounts. There it will list your ATT/Yahoo account and below that it will list additional accounts. Is the Trueswitch account listed there? If so you should be able to delete it.

Hi Joe,

Thank you for all the suggestions. Thankfully, after changing the theme I had chosen, closing down the browser, and clearing history - it seems to have stopped. I have had this account for over 15 years so I think it is a problem related to ATT switching all of the data over to the new email format. If it starts up again, I will finish your list of suggestions.

 

Sure appreciate the time you have taken to give me some ideas of what to do.
