It should do it on both accounts. Make sure the address is correct.

addy is right.i've never used the email actually but i set it up a few years ago while i was using the texting service.i just tried sending myself mail FROM the 02 account and i get the same message.

why are you sending yourself mail? you might as well send yourself a letter, or if it is really important, tell yourself..I of course..jest

are other email being received ok?

why the question mark.did u forget who u was again?

i sent myself mail cos i was expecting summat and it never arrived.wasn't sure if there were any problems with the site u c.the way things have been just lately it's probably quicker TO send myself a letter in the post.yes the mail is important cos i registered with a site and i need the password.

all other mail is ok at the sec.

this is strange cos the mail i sent myself from the site has NOW arrived and the mail from the ntl account is there.

anyway, are you now all sorted? or do you still want sorting out....

i get ya love.i do remember seeing that a while back but haven't bin in much and thought it was sorted.

fine.sorted now i think.i've given the site one of my other email addy's for them to contact me on just in case.anymore help and i know where to come to


thanks for the suggestion.i still don't know wot was going on but i do know that i had tried the addy out a few weeks ago and forgot about the was just that i wanted to use the addy for the registration.hopefully everything will be ok in the future.
