I experienced the same thing when my mail page was changed to the new AT&T Yahoo! Mail version. I really did not like the ads on the right panel as well. But I believe that this change was a business decision. Nowadays, most sites display ads.
I also learned that it can easily be fixed. When I called AT&T, they had me change to the Classic Mail version instead. Here are the steps that they gave me:
1. Login to your Mail page.
2. Click on 'Options' on the upper-right corner of the Mail page.
3. Then select 'Switch To Classic Mail Version'.
I hope this helps. Good luck!

When they changed to the Powered by Yahoo! Mail version, I was confused with the new format. How about you? Which part of the email system got you frustrated?
I am still on the process of familiarizing myself with the new buttons and links. And I realized that it's actually user-friendly the more I use it. I am now starting to like the change.

The new e-mail sytem works for me too. There could just be an issue with your browser. Why don't you try to upgrade your browser or clean it up by deleting those cache and cookies.

Wow! This happened to me too! I completely understand why you are so frustrated by this change. I would like to share you the information I got from one of AT&T's tech support agent when I called them about this exact issue.
It looks like AT&T/Bellsouth encourages us to move/change to the new AT&T Mail Powered by Yahoo version. Their new password format has to have numbers and letters, so I had to change my email password too. Sigh...
For you to login to the free Yahoo! email ID, you need to type www.yahoo.com on the address bar. Then login using your normal free Yahoo! ID.
And for you to login to your Bellsouth email ID, you need to go to http://att.yahoo.com website. You have to login using the complete email ID (including @ bellsouth.net).
I believe that we cannot login to both free Yahoo! ID and Bellsouth (changed to Powered by Yahoo!) at the same time because they are using the same Yahoo! server.
I hope this helps.

Why is my mail system (on my mac) receiveing duplicate emails for over a year ago...I've had 1157 so far...and some are rather large files. It will take 2 or 3 hours to download all those emails again. Wow...this new system is awsome!! (sarcasm)

It is possible that your MAC Mail is setup to leave copies of your emails on the server; that is why you are receiving duplicate emails.
Try checking the MAC Mail settings.
1. Open the MAC Mail Program.
2. From the MAC Mail toolbar on top, click on 'Mail'.
3. Select the 'Preferences' option. Then click on the 'Accounts' icon.
4. Go to the 'Advanced' Tab.
If you want your messages to be deleted from the AT&T Yahoo! Mail server after you have received them in MAC Mail, check the box "Remove copy from server after retrieving a message:".
5. Then hit 'OK' to save the settings. Try sending yourself a test email and check if it will still be duplicated.
Hope these steps will help solve your issue.

are you referring to the new email format of at&t mail page? if you do not like the ads appearing on the right side of the screen, you may go back to the classic mail version.
just click on OPTIONS --> SWITCH TO CLASSIC MAIL.
hopefully this is what you wanted.

This ATT upgrade to the website does not help me with navigating the internet. There is much more commercials dancing on the web page everytime I open to check my email. It takes 3 or more steps to check my emails and to change from one email to the other because I have to sign in and sign out to get to the other emails. It was much simpler before with BellSouth. I don't like to hear or see the word upgrade from AT&T because that means changing to something more complicated. Upgrades are not for the customers, I think. It seems to be for advertisements.

Three clicks to check my mail after I log in, peppered with ads for crap I neither want or need, over 100 spam filters GONE, a host of other functions that don't work..... I used to get 20 to 30 spam emails a MONTH with the old system, now I'm getting 15 to 20 a DAY! I can safely say some of you other users have noticed this as well, it's almost as if my email address had been sold to the spammers by my once beloved service provider. If I had wanted Yahoo, I would have just signed into the FREE account I never use. As a long time BellSouth customer I have watched the steady decline in the quality of service since their misbegotten aquisition by at&t. Did they consult the people who tragically pay their salaries before force feeding us this load of cyber poop? Who am I kidding. Some half lit, cigar chomping suit chugging around mindlessly in a golf cart apparently had a brilliant idea of how to increase revenues. The tech support people have no idea of how the new software works, so you get to idle on hold waiting for a 'Yahoo transition specialist' who then tells you you to turn your spam filter off if it's canning mail from your contacts...... Briliiant!!! Then they have the stones to solicit your celluar business..... YIKES! Puh-leeze, let me outta here ! Oh yeah, did mention the link they give you for 'upgrade feedback' takes you directly to a .......... 404 - PAGE NOT FOUND ERROR!

I understand how you feel. However, there is really "no single solution" to stop spam emails. But you know, I rarely get spammed; want the trick? Use the "Mark as Spam" button ALWAYS. I think the more frequent you use, the more efficient it will work. About the ads, I think it's more of a marketing strategy. What I do to get away with it is to switch my email to "Classic Mail." The Classic Mail has a less distracting advertisement, and works great for me! Hope this helps you.
