Re: oath message

Hi I get email on my ipad and on the home PC. It only stays on the phone for two weeks but is permanently downloaded to the PC . I tried to use your instructions to change the settings from POP 3 to IMAP on the ipad but could not get it to create anything but a POP3 account again. It is an old ipad vintage 2009 could that be the problem.
As for the spam deleting on a rolling 30 days are you sure, I thought that when I looked it went back to the last time I accessed it, but of course I cannot do that anymore unless I give my digital life to Oath which is not going to happen.
I am still very **bleep** off with BT why have they sold out to an american company? An why when I talk to the BT help line and get India do they not know anything about Oath?
Regards
Nick

Re: oath message

I find it odd that you use an iPad and a PC and you appear to be only worried about using BTYahoo/Oath  "unless I give my digital life to Oath which is not going to happen". with no concern about how Microsoft and Apple happily gather information from your devices not to mention the "permissions" that the apps will have been given in order to operate.

Re: oath message

Yes you are correct but I suppose the new rules are making us more cautious going forward. I do not see that I should be agreeing to allow Oath to start doing this, as all I want is my BT email accessed as I used to.

I have just created one of my BT emails on the PC as an IMAP account. If I right click on the email address where the folders are displayed I can see IMAP folders but I cannot see a Spam folder. How do I get access through IMAP to the Spam folder?

Regards

Nick

Re: oath message

The spam folder is called Bulk Mail (don't ask!!!)

Re: oath message

Has anyone actually tried to unsubscribe from Oath cookies.  there are about a dozen or more separate organisatuions each of which has 8-10 separate opt-in or opt-out settings, some of which you have to go through capcha or pictorial anti-bot checks (ironic eh?)

Makes Facebook seem like a user friendly manager of permissions

 

Come on BT - you said you were going to migrate us off the Yahoo platform years ago and we have to put up with this nonsense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: oath message

If you are that bothered by it, don't use webmail, use a mail client, no cookies then. There is a global opt-out in any case you don't have to opt out individually.

Re: oath message

I'm more bothered by the fact that BT still haven't moved some of us off the yahoo platform as was promised years ago

Re: oath message

Derek P, I have the same concern, opting out is not a simple process. Ticking the opt out of all option works up to the point the submit button is greyed out. Oddly I only get this screen come up on one sub account, I have not seen it at all on main and other sub account.
