That has nothing to do with email clients. All the more reason not to use TT's email. Check out Gmail. Can't remember the other one, as I don't use it, but if Lotvic sees this thread I'm sure he'll post a link.
"contract with TT"so am I but you don't have to use TT email exclusively. You can have other email accounts. As well as my TalkTalk email I've got gmail, gmx.co.uk and a couple of hotmail addresses, all of which I collect through Outlook Express.
rdave13, I've got W7 on another HDD but mostly use XP for general use at the mo' because I've a few programs that I can't move to W7 as they were from GOTD and can't re-register them. Eventually I'll be more on W7 than XP - sheer laziness prevents at mo' ;-)
With apologies to thumbscrew for the hijacking, you can usually get other free options to what GOTD supplies. Stopped using it for the simple reason these programs are free without limitations, under different names, if you search. Hate programs that hold you to ransom. Surprised at you lotvic :-)
I've lived with TalkTalk for over ten years since they bought up Onetel, mainly because of their unbeatable bundle of broadband with National and International calls. "Free" (included in fixed monthly payment) calls abroad totalling over ten hours and UK calls about twice that, make it a bargain for this family, but if I went for broadband only, one of the small ones are said to be better but not cheaper.
Things have improved dramatically since TT connected me up to optic fibre, instead of less than 1Mb we are now getting 38Mb (promised 40) for £10 a month extra and double that for a further £5, but it's so fast now I haven't bothered.
Talktalk is O.K. so long as you don't need Customer Service which is where it all falls apart, as todays report from Oftel says that TTalk has again got the highest level of customer complaints for hardline connections but mostly relating to billing and Customer Service.
