Why can't I get the newer att.net email since I installed Windows 8?

Since installing Windows 8, I can't access the newer att.net email.  The message I get suggests that I return to Classic email.

How can I get access to the newer version?

All users with Internet Explorer 10 are seeing the same behavior including me.  The only solution at this time is to click on use classic mail, or access your mail using another browser like chrome, firefox, etc.

 

It's not AT&T's issue it's Yahoo's mail not being compatable with IE10.

Another option is to use the built in mail client that comes with Windows 8. Enter in your credientals and it should sync with your email and downlaod them each time you get a new email.

When friending me mention that you found me on the AT&T forums.

How do you change the time in the classic mail? It is five hours ahead of my locak time.

I tried using the windows 8 mail and it has some issues... no contact folder, cannot flag important mail, etc. You need to go to the Microsoft forums and read all of the problems this mail is having.

I went to system recovery and started over.
