ATT Yahoo Mail "latest" version

by willivon4 / July 12, 2013 3:29 AM PDT

How many of you have experienced this "New" version which appeared to be FORCED upon us ATT Uverse and Broadband customers? Anyone know of a way back to the previous version.? This one is WAY less powerful and reliable! I wonder what conspiracy theorists might have to say about this obvious corporate dis-empowerment of internet service customers?
I've opened a g-mail account and linked it to my ATT one to get contacts and messages but have experienced mixed results. Some contacts came over minus addresses. It is an obvious attempt to eventually totally DUMP ATT Yahoo Mail! I had used the "Notepad" for on-line storage of some non-financial system log-ins (forums etc) and need to figure out an on-line alternative. Also some important messages were stored in "other folders" a function I have yet to duplicate in my g-mail account.
As to it's "Newness"; it sure looks like a MUCH less powerful version of the system that preceded the one this one replaced. It has the same look.

Are you talking about WEB MAIL?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / July 12, 2013 10:18 AM PDT

I use Outlook 2003 at the office (old, I know) and Thunderbird so if this is some WEB BASED EMAIL, you are indeed not in control. If you want control, get off the web based email.

Don't give up quite yet

I'm not an ATT customer, but the new mail system applies to all Yahoo users. However, the number of features that are available to you differs according to which browser you use. The Mozilla Firefox version is bare-bones; I'm not even able to add a 2nd phone number to any of my contacts, for instance! I had better success using Yahoo Mail with Internet Explorer, and Opera.

While I'm not normally a conspiracy theorist, could Yahoo be trying to shut out Mozilla?..........just sayin'

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
