    Why do some wrongly assume that people are using a stupid cell phone check their email when millions of us are using a Windows Desktop PC computer? After 14 years with no problems with Outlook out of the blue there are recent problems trying to receive emails with AT&T/Yahoo email and I strongly suspect the problem is Yahoo yet nobody has any answers however AT&T said they have been getting thousands of calls with the exact same complaints as me and they suspect the problem is with Yahoo Server yet the idiots at Yahoo have no direct contact info with a real human being which means it's time to dump them!

      The address is legit but it can be spoofed, therefore, forward the email to us with the email headers.

    I received an email that reads...

    "Important update- If you use a mail client (such as Outlook, thunderbird or a pre-installed mail application) to access your mail on your mobile device or computer you may need to update your settings. Doin so will ensure you can continue to access your AT&T mail account through that mail client."

    It further says that AT&T will doom implement a more secure way for customers using these mail clients to login to their AT&T mail service, so it's My important your mail settings are up to date."

    My question is, is this a scam?
