Freeserve/Wanadoo Users - Email

  lpl56407 18:40 28 Apr 2006

I use Wanadoo Broadband (originaly Freeserve). My mail client is Outlook Express which I have been using for 'ages' with my Freeserve Account set up for incoming mail servers as '' and outgoing as'.
Today I was not receiving any Emails. Tried to send myself an Email and nothing came in. No error message received.
Rang Wanadoo Support. They have changed 'nothing' but told me to delete my mail account and set up another with the same email address but specifying incoming and outgoing servers as '' and ''.
Sent myself an email and it worked.
BUT the emails that I was sent by other people today were not received.
Are there any other Freeserve/Wanadoo users out there who have had problems today?
From my previous experience with Freeserve/Wanadoo I do not believe them!

Have just tried sending myself e-mails from fsnet and tiscali to my account with freeserve. Both have arrived safely.

Sorry about that!

I still cannot see how *****@***** equates back to There must be some link up between wanadoo and fsnet in terms of recognition, but I must admit, I fail to see it. I have spoken to my sister this evening and again she says she cannot get OE6 to receive any e mail. It must be something to do with the user name, and as I said, what becomes the user name when the whole base has been changed via yet the e mail address has not changed!

It certainly sounds as if lpl56407 is having exactly the same problem of recognition of an fsnet or freeserve e mail address with a parent setting of

I have tried your link and get absolutely nowhere. It shows "session expired message"! I cannot get it to find Setup e mail? as a question in the serach window.

I'm sure I saw a posting on here today that said that Wanadoo had changed all Freeserve addresses to Wanadoo addresses but I'm darned if I can find it.
