I have been unable to open my Yahoo & Lycos accounts for the last 5 days, emails piling up. I had NTL rep round today who confirmed "chaos" with loggon to amongst others the above. He claims its a MSN problem todo with MS IE6 service pack & his advice was "wait for MS to send required upgrades". If anyone else has similar problems would be interested to hear. P.S. [email protected] relpied to my query with, "Yahoo are currently experiencing an issue with MS & hope to rectify ASAP". As to who's responsible well that's anyones guess, what does seem obvious is it isin't a personel browser problem. G
I'm on NTL and use Lycos both using web mail and OE6 without any problem at all. I will mention though that Lycos have upgraded their server in the last couple of weeks, this may have something to do with it, I don't know.
I use Yahoo geocities for one of my websites, again no problems accessing it, apart from a problem with one of my GIF files.
By the way I use Win98SE IE6 or Opera and OE6 for email.
I am interested in everyone's replies as I'm trying to establish where my problems lie. As per most network problems trying to get a coherent reply from either MS or your ISP, for me @ least generally poses more problems than it sorts.
Yeah Paul, I can access but cannot open anything further, same with Yahoo. I spoke to Tech Services, NTL who confirmed there are problems accessing secure servers such as Yahoo & Lycos from Cambridge & Colchester where I am. I'm no wiser. Gareth
The plot thickens. What I really don't comprehend is how it's possible to access some but not other sites from the same area. Also that the problem ln fact lies with NTL!? Should make it interesting when my bill pops through the letter box. Gareth
