AT&T Support (Not!)
My name is Randy Trahan. I am an AT&T customer in the San Francisco Bay Area. Suddenly in December 2006 my mother in Austin, TX could no longer e-mail me. She uses Road Runner, which I soon discovered was blocked by AT&T. At the same time my wife, who uses uses NetIdentity, was also blocked. My brother who works for Fluor-Daniels in the Middle East couldn't e-mail me. Fluor-Daniels was blocked.
I went to the AT&T e-mail help forum, and it was flooded with complaints. People can't hear from their family, friends, doctors, clients, customers, vendors, government agencies, etc. AT&T will not even forward our mail to a new (non-AT&T) address. They just kill it. Customers (like myself) who have had AT&T e-mail addresses for years are SCREAMING, but AT&T couldn't care less.

You can see the actual AT&T "Help Forum" (okay, okay, it's more like a NO HELP forum) by clicking here.

AT&T lets their users send spam to users of other ISPs. They then block the innocent recipients of this spam when these messages are bounced back. UNBELIEVABLE you say!?!?!?

If you have friends with AT&T e-mail addresses (and you have not yet been blocked) please send them a link to this page. If you have a website, please add a link to this page. (The more links the more visible this problem will be on the Internet.) When I get new information on the AT&T e-mail blocking problem I will post it here. If you have any suggestions about how to improve this page e-mail me at this address:
