freeserve email (dial-up) thu broadband connection

  Xevious 13:05 18 Aug 2003

i now have blueyonder bb, used to have freeserve via dial-up. am receiving all emails sent to my old freeserve email address fine via bb. but apparently this will only be kept live for 3 months unless i connect in that time...

now does anyone know: does that mean dial-up within 3 months, or just connect to their serve within the 3 month period?

surely their server only needs to see that i'm connecting to get emails, so it should show up as active? don't want the hasle of using my SLOW modem every 3 months just to keep it active!!!

any thoughts?

Think you will need to accesss your Freeserve account via dial-up to retain the service, but you need do it only once every thre months. Just log on in the evening and spend a couple of minutes on the site. j.
