Those of you not using ATT as your ISP are you going to get shafted by your
ISPs with crap in your email too?

From the wording of the message, it sounds as though they're going to
start putting ads onto the pages of their webmail service. I don't
think there's anything particularly bad about that - Hotmail and Gmail
already do so, as do many webmail providers. It's part of the price
you pay for getting webmail for free - and, as we all know, something
that you get for free is worth exactly what you pay for it.

If they were planning to insert adverts into the actual content of
emails as delivered by POP3/IMAP/SMTP, then that would, of course, be
entirely unacceptable. But I don't think this is what's being proposed
in this instance.

$40.00 a month isn't exactly what I call free.

I don't use ATT for web mail. I didn't recieve this through a free webmail
account. I recieved this in my regular pop3 mail. The way it reads to me is
that they are planning to insert advertisements into my pop3 mail. Oh well
I will know for sure soon enough. :(
