BT Connect to BT Openworld E-Mail Problems

  SABRE 16:33 20 Apr 2004

Anyone else suffering? I am trying to send e-mails from office (Connect) to home (Openworld) and there are enormous delays.

Have raised with BT but not confident with their response.

Came through immediately.

The problem is inter BT (Connect to Openworld/Yahoo). All other e-mails get through OK.

PS I sent one this morning at 09.30 from Connect and it arrived at 16.30. AWFUL!!

not the same i know, but, i upgraded to btyahoo, what a mistake to make, Every email i sent using OE never got there, i rang BT 3 times spending ages on the phone, being told to reset all the accounts, which i did, still no good, the forth time they reset it their end, and since then it has been ok..once it was sorted i went back to btinternet,

Why use an isp to send your mail? click here . Its free and turns your pc into a mail server. You can make it look like the mail has been sent via your normal isp. Its easy to set up and you only need to run the prog to send your mail. You can make it work with outlook exp too.

....that if BT should fix the problem. It is theirs, someone should OWN it and keep us updated.
