Logging onto talktalk

  jack 14:23 04 Aug 2010

Having restored a machine to running after a crash for one of my flock- she now needs to get back to her ISO- Talktalk.
The talktalk disk loaded correctly acknowledged the modem and connected to server.
This came up with message-' nowfollow exactly your 'Welcomel letter instructions -
She gas lost the letter.
A 0870 phone call to the help desk in dampest India - told her her her username is the landline telephone number.
Did that [she remembered the password] call accepted.
Now to get to the mail account- User name and password required
Phone number and pass wrod - incorrect
Email and password -incorrect
check lost user name -
answer land-line phone
try again - This time an AOL page telling her the account is 'managed by your provider'
So yet another loop
Any ideas?

yes the connection is her phone number @TalkTalk.net.

But she also needs her connection user name all the above are case sensitive
