BT email problem...

  Hypnos 07:29 22 Mar 2004
Locked anyone out there having trouble with BT emails, when sending them to another BT account, my sent box say they are gone, but they do not turn up to where they are sent..if i send an email to my account with lycos or angelfire they get there...anyone any idea why? i will go through the basics before i ask someone who is with BT to allow me to send a test email..yes, i know it's a cheek, but the two bt accounts i am trying to send to, are my son and my daughter, and nothing ever gets there... thanks

Are they being returned as not diliverable ? or are they just dissapearing into the wide blue yonder??

hi, they just go off into pc tells me they have been sent, but neither son or daughter get them, i have sent myself a few test emails to a lycos account and they turn up......

Hi hypnos
could it be something that happened to me. I started to receive messages from a few people i had never heard of, till i opened one in error, and found out my server had given a email to another guy with same name, i didn't open the previous mails because of viruses, but got it sorted in the end. Ask your son&daughter if they have friends with bt server and do they receive emails from them.Don

hi, the pair of them only get mail from me,or did, i am beginning to think it might be something to do with BT/YAHOO ..i do not have the yahoo bit, anyone else running their email with just BT and no yahoo

I was auto upgaded to btyahoo a few months ago, I thought everyone had been aswell. There was a e-mail warning about it. Now if I go to btopenworld and try to use e-mail I am auto redirected to where I log in and have a front page that contains my e-mail account.
