my friend has just gone on line and is using BTYahoo.
When I get a mail from him, I see it is from
"[email protected]"

My address is "[email protected]"

If I reply to him using the "reply" box, the message is returned by Deamon as undelivered.
If I alter his address to "[email protected]" it is delivered, why am I receiving his address incorrectly, is it me or him?

Looks like he hasn't put his usser name in.
the name is just showing as i said your usser name should be.

Hi Swapper
It seems that BT is very confusing at present, there are so many variations of addressess.

[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]
[email protected]???

When I changed from dial-up to broadband and BT then introduced yahhoo, I still kept my old e-mail address of btinternet.

Hope this helps your ?

What must he do to ensure that his correct address i.e "[email protected]" (with the "bt" inserted) is sent with his mail?

He must have been given a usser name as no ISP would except name for a usser,it could read IE
[email protected] or what ever he wanted tobe called when he registered.
