Re: Please help my 80 year old grandparents with uverse
If it were me, I'd just set them up with a gmail, yahoo, etc account. There's really no reason to use an email account that is tied to an ISP account these days unless you just want to. Personally, I don't like the idea of my email account being at the mercy of an ISP and me at risk of losing access to the account if I ever change or cancel the service.
It is going on two years since I quit AT&T, and I still have my 'pacbell.net' accounts. You suggest a "Yahoo!" account. Well, all AT&T email is handled by Yahoo!. When I left AT&T, my 'pacbell.net' accounts were converted to Yahoo! Web mail. -- Norman ~Oh Lord, why have you come ~To Konnyu, with the Lion and the Drum
