AT&T has been sending me relentless amounts of AT&T U-verse letters in the mail without any opt-out addresses to respond to. After a quick search on the Interwebs, I found this post on how to opt out of AT&T’s mailers.
Although the post had some great information I still don’t think it should be this hard to opt-out.
Please comment below if you know a better way to opt out. In the meantime here’s a few different methods from their post if you are a current AT&T customer:
- Contact Information to address concerns- clicked on contact us- NO PHONE NUMBER. -but buried in text is a list of phone numbers –Contact
If you are a not a AT&T customer:
AT&T Opt Out Request
5565 Glen Ridge Connector
Atlanta, GA 30342-4756
While we will strive to honor your request, you may receive an occasional mailing. To the extent that you receive unwanted U.S. Mail from any source, it is hoped you can make it available to a paper recycling program.
I promptly replied back with the respective information and received another email the next day confirming the removal:
Thank you for providing the requested information. Your request for Do-Not-Mail has been submitted for AT&T. Please allow up to 30 business days for the process to complete.
Kudos to AT&T for having a process to get names and addresses removed from their mail list, but seriously it shouldn’t be this difficult. In this day and age of automation this process should be much much easier.
Creating events in Outlook calendar works fine on my Dell laptop. Editing the event after posting it the first time creates a huge bug which I blamed MS Outlook for the last couple of years. Basically Outlook automatically posts the same event recurring every day for an infinite amount of time. THIS DROVE ME NUTS! But apparently not enough to simply Google it and find the solution. I finally found it and apparently it was Dell all along to blame. Grrrr…
Here’s the solution posted on Egghead Cafe. If you own a Dell and have Outlook 2003, you probably have this problem. Simply uninstall “outlookaddinsetup” from your programs list and you’re good to go.Â Special thanks to Google Suggest which provides key terms you may not ordinarily think of and Graeme who took the time and found a fix for Outlook’s recurrence problem.
