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.
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.
