I used to use Tiscali for my dial-up ISP. Have recently joined with Pipex for broadband and am very pleased with it, but am not happy with email.
I would prefer to continue to use my old Tiscali and Lineone email addresses. But obviously want to use the broadband access to download the emails.
In Outlook Express (v6) it checks the Pipex address, then struggles with the Lineone address - it asks whether I want to try to connect using the same server or whether I should redial using the Tiscali number. If I try to connect using the same server sometimes it works sometimes it doesnt.
It never lets me send an email using the Lineone address unless I dial up using the Tiscali number.
Is this normal, or am I just being a bit dim with some settings?
I've now checked through all my settings, and had got some spurious one in one of the Tiscali accounts (why this had happened I have no idea) which was giving me failures when it checked for emails. Now that is corrected I can get Pipex to download all emails from all accounts.
And I just need to send emails using Pipex, that's fine.
