'The problem is that in Feb my Orange Web Mail had over 500 spam messages and I'm now receiving 7 or 8 per day. Orange claim that if I do not use the mail for 219 days ( seems a strange figure ) the web mail will cease to operate. Based on my past experience this is not the case, although I have an e-mail address in web mail I have not used it for a couple of years. I use Outlook Express and I want to take Orange web mail totally off my PC'
can you clarify
do you use OE with the orange address or just view mails on server?
and do you have any alternative e mail address NOT with orange?
I have the same e-mail address with Orange as with O.E; I have no other e-mail addresses; I did consider deleting my e-mail address and creating a new one but that would be a lot of hassle, but it may be a solution, what do you think?
"Can I delete the Web Mail system ( from Orange) from my PC"
Webmail is accessed via your web browser, so if you don't access the webmail you won't see it - it's as simple as that. You can download the same mail in Outlook Express, you don't ever have to use the webmail facility if you don't want to, although some people find it useful when they're on holiday, because you can access it from any computer, anywhere in the world.
I haven't used my ISP's webmail facility since someone told me about Mail2web at click here. It's more efficient than any ISP's facility I've tried, and I can check/read the mail much quicker. No money, registration or any other commitment involved - just type in your email address and ordinary provider's password each time.
It's useful when away from home of course, but I also find webmail handy at home, for looking at emails on the server before downloading them to my computer with OE or whatever (The same thing Mailwasher does, if you've heard of that). I can check out the occasional email that could be from either friend or foe, or delete any very large email that doesn't finish downloading and stops me getting any other mail.
