    Hi,

    Is anyone else having problems sending or recieiving emails via their email client on the pc/mac, i use mac mail and tried thunderbird, but email is just playing up all the time, it never seems to go out. I read a blog dated feb 2007 that users where having rant over talktalk email problems, looks like there are still ocurring. :thumbsdow

    Q. Anyone know of a/ using a relieable and not costly smtp email provider?.

    Just sent an email from TBird on an Ubuntu box and went through ok.

    Is this a new problem for you, or have you never managed to send emails via TT.

    OK i have overcome the email problems with talktalk now, where some sites refused to work, mainly yahoo and hotmail email accounts, and email problems in Mail/Thunderbird. I changed 2 settings on the router that i found elsewhere. PM me if youre having same problems.
