You may remember my post Why AT&T U-Verse E-Mail Sucks on a Mac Unless You Pay More to Talk to Them where I was being told by one of their online copy and pasters that I needed to call in and PAY to have them tell me how to get my Mac to work with ATT.NET.
Well, the complaints keep coming on DaddyClaxton.com about this issue. AT&T ARE YOU EFFIN LISTENING?
I finally got my ATT.net to work after getting operators to unblock port 995. I had to shut down my computer, reboot and reload ATT.NET in MAC MAIL in order to get it to work. HOWEVER, there have been at least two times in the past three days when it has dropped out again and I’ve had to delete the account from Mac Mail and reinstall the Mail account.
Seriously, since I’m not really relying on this account for say, BUSINESS, it’s okay. But it’d be nice if this would work on my iPhone, which it doesn’t. That’s a whole nother matter.
YOU’D THINK IN THE YEAR 2010 EMAIL WOULD BE SOMETHING YOU COULD GET AS PART OF YOUR INTERNET PACKAGE, but apparently for AT&T U-Verse on a Mac, that’s a little too damned complicated.
Today’s comments from The Dogman:
The Dogman says:
I’ve had Uverse for 3 hours. 3 glorious hours I’ve spent trying to have an outgoing mail server on a client account. Just spent an hour with these morons playing the third party game and talking like mac is a POS. The supervisor was Arthur badge number AV7839. I’ll be the shortest uverse customer ever.Uverse you can wake up now it’s 2010 and getting an outgoing mail server shouldn’t be this ridiculous.

And not to mention when Apple moved to SNOW LEOPARD and AT&T’s computer modems can’t keep up with the updates in Snow Leopard. So, last September when I upgraded to Snow Leopard, guess what happened to my modem for when I was on the road: it didn’t work. So I called AT&T, they said I needed to call the modem manufacturer. I did. Guess what. They said it worked with this update. And it did for about a week. Then Apple did and update and guess what? IT NEVER WORKED AGAIN.
As busy as I was I didn’t have time to call AT&T every day to get them to help me. Frankly, I HATE CALLING AT&T. That damn guy voice system they use when you call the main number just sucks.
So, weeks passed. Months passed. I called. They gave me a credit for a couple months. Then we tried to fix it again. It worked for like 15 minutes and then … it never worked again.
I finally discontinued the line in February.
