Email on Orange Probs...

Anyone else having problems today with getting email from Orange Broadband?...

I think they must be working on the POP Server, There was about an hour yesterday evening when I couldn't send mail, no prob today though.

I've heard on another forum they are having problems at the moment.

I called the help line (National Rate) No problems with the internet.

They say:

1. There is no problem, it must be BT
2. Try and reinstall Outlook and set up the email again
3. There is an intermittent problem effecting some users
4. They did not know what to do to help and try resetting the livebox.

This was from 3 different people with strange accents.

Think I may have to consider my options...

You don't send email via the POP server, that's for inbound mail. Outbound mail goes via the smtp server.

My mistake, I posted just before I was going out and din't check what I had written.
I did indeed have a problem sending but not recieving.

I had exactly the same last evening; could send but not receive. I got a message telling me that `pop.wanadoo.....` was unavailable.

bretsky has been having the same kind of problem click here

Like you I had problems receiving or sending e-mails. I used system restore to go back to before the problem and now everything is fine. It might just have been coincidence but it worked for me.
