E-Mail accounts on Broadband

  mike424 17:53 18 Mar 2003

Have gone onto Freeserve Broadband. Have 3 user names 2 thro' Freeserve which are working fine and one thro'Lineone (Tiscali), which will not work despite a thorough check of all the settings. If I use the Tiscali (pay as you go) number I can receive my e-mail (although like others today it is painfully slow)All my mail comes to LineOne address and would like to keep it. Any ideas or is it just Tiscali playing silly b*****s today?

u can't check ur mail from a different componys connection. Som 1 told me haw 2 do it once though but I never bothered. If u change email address it is difficult for the first few weeks then when u get everythin changed over it's all fine.

I have numerous accounts (including Lineone) and I access them all through one dial up. There has been a problem with Lineone/Tiscali for a couple of days.

Like Megabite, I have various e-mail accounts, and can access almost all from my Pipex broadband connection. The exception is Freenetname. I can receive, but not send, on these accounts unless I actually connect to their service.

A useful site for also accessing your e-mails is:

I have been picking up lineone e-mail (my main address) through Freeserve Anytime for a long time so there is no reason why it should not work thro; Freeserve Broadband. It just won't, unless there is a long ongoing problem with Tiscali.
If I ever get through to the Broadband help line perhaps they will be able to help!?

Have you tried your Lineone account through Freeserve in the past couple of days? Everything seems to be working again now.

LineOne e-mail was unobtainable for some days. However, all is well now and you should be able to collect it without problem.
