email address oddity!

  Pine Man 18:37 14 Aug 2006

My email address is [email protected], which is now owned by Tiscali.

When I log on to read my web based emails (not via Outlook Express)my email address is always remembered so all I have to fill in is the password.

Today I opened up the log on screen and my correct email address was shown. I completed my password and dealt with three emails and logged off. After doing so the screen acknowledged that I had logged off but showed my email address as [email protected].

I over wrote the address with my correct address and logged in ok but when I logged out again the ntmuk address was shown.

I have NIS 2006 up to date, Windows Defender, Spybot & Spywareblaster and no problems shown.

Nobody has access to my PC, which is running XP SP2.

Any ideas?

Surly Tiscali should be able to answer this one

Tiscali has, in fact, answered this one a little while back...:-)

For instance I have a

[email protected]

but Tiscali prefers it as

[email protected]

for logon purposes.

I can also receive e-mails with it in either form.

Tiscali has also upped free e-mail space from 10MB to 100MB and from 100MB to 1000MB for those who pay for additional space.

A cut and paste from the Tiscali webmail logon page:

If the format of your email address used to be [email protected] then you must now use the format [email protected] to access your emails. Don't worry, you will still automatically receive emails sent to the old format address.

There is a list somewhere about Lineone etc but I can't find it - no doubt if you key in the "wrong" e-mail address in the username, you'll get a similar reply.
