Have just received an email from "Tiscali Team" (at firstname.lastname@example.org) purporting to warn that there maybe modem compatibility problems with Vista and providing a link to download updated drivers.
I can only assume that this is some sort of link to a malware download - so be warned!
Don't know - I've deleted the message. But in any case, if it was genuine, it is rather remiss of Tiscali to publish it in that way. They should have directed users to a link in the standard Tiscali web site. No way would I download anything via a link in an unsolicited email.
It was some time agoe, but from what I recall, it presented all the mails in a window for review and then one clicked / selected various options to have the mails handled appropriately.
In the short term I found it just as easy to set-up rules in OE to redirect mails in to separate mailboxes and then just delete en-masse wheer necessary. But the real solution was to eradicate the spam by changing my email addresses. It took a bit of doing, but life is much smoother now.
Thats not the best of it. I contacted Tiscali last week about Vista and the drivers for the modems, they said that there are no Sagem drivers but there are Speedtouch ones. Now according to this email the opposite is true, there are no Speedtouch ones but there is one available for Sagem. They even sent me a Speedtouch modem to replace my faulty Sagem one. I have never dealt with such an incompetant bunch of idiots. Usually when they bother to reply to anything they tell you about something that has nothing to do with what you asked. Now if this email is genuine they are telling me the exact opposite of what they told me last week. No wonder I'm confused. I had thought of moving to another provider of BB and this has finally decided me as there customer service is pathetic.
