I have one email username and pw.
How do I go about making a new Username & PW.
Do I just add them or do I have to get permission from my provider.

You should be able to add a new email address with your ISP. With BT I have two, Hotmail I have two, Yahoo I have 4.

Personally I would recommend having more than the one email address.

It depends who your service provider is.

However, many ISP's will allow you several email names on your account.

For example, if your current ID is something like: [email protected], then you could probably also have [email protected] and several others.

Who is your ISP?

OK - Tisacali will definitely let you do what I described above.

click here and then click on "Add an email address" near the bottomn of the page. It'll show you how.

Bless you, have you caught a cold?

I did as told and added myself a new Email username and PW.
But when I try to send it comes up with a box which asks me to confirm my username and PW and when I do this it just hangs and repeats the message.
Makes me wonder if I need to ring Tiscali to have the username and PW confirmed first.

With BT I get 5 "Primary Addresses" and can have up to 500 "Disposable" ones on the go. Great for registering with anything you think might cause a problem or generate spam.

Are you sure you are using exactly the same name and pw in your confirmation- case etc. Sounds as though you are not.
