I started getting notes from some of you as well as numerous others in my email contact list yesterday afternoon. I started trying to fix it then, to no avail.

It appears it wasn't just my account but some sort of systemic AT&T/Yahoo problem. Fortunately many of my contacts had excellent filters and the spam was denied. The question remains if I'll be able to send individual email to these contacts in the future. Time will tell.

AT&T/Yahoo are working on the problem and will/have resolve(d) it.

Below is the notice you'll find after stumbling around awhile;

Alert: Intermittent Password Issues

AT&T has identified several intermittent password-related issues that may impact customers, including the following:

    Customer email passwords suddenly stop working
    After password resets, customers are unable to access email
    Customers are getting caught in password reset loops
    The "Remember Me" password option for email isn't always working
    Customers are unable to send/receive email with new mail settings

Please be aware that AT&T is working to resolve these issues. If you are experiencing any of the symptoms above and have been unsuccessful accessing your email or resetting your password, please Contact Us for more assistance.

Thank you for your understanding and my apologies for my part (having your email address).

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
