I have been having problems sending E-mails through my Tiscali account and have just found out that the reason I can not send them is because I'm using B.T Broadband as my internet connection instead of a Tiscali one. something to do with the SMTP being different from the ISP I'm connecting through.
Is there any way round this or do I have to open up a seperate account with B.T to send my E-mails
I've just found out today while researching for someone else in your situation that if you're with BT Openworld then they don't have an SMTP server so you can't use other ISP's email accounts through them. There are third parties that provide this service for a charge and I have been told, but have no confirmation, that you can upgrade your BT account to a premium service that provides an SMTP server for a small extra charge. £1 extra per month was mentioned but again I have no confirmation. Your only free option would seem to be to use Tiscali's webmail. I strongly advise that you change to a proper Broadband provider as soon as you can get out of your contract with BT. I use Pipex and am quite happy with them while some of my friends swear by Force9. There are also many others who are all better and cheaper than BT.
