NTL Emails

To anyone who is expecting an email from me. NTL seem to have a nationwide problem with their email service. I have 3 outstanding emails to Forum members that I am not able to answer at the moment. Please bear with me. They will be answered as soon as possible.

Yep it is down here also (Gtr. Manchester) Been trying to send two for most of the day. Now given up until tomorrow when I am hoping its fixed.

I'm also in Gtr. Manchester and have experienced an intermittent service since Friday 9th evening. In fairness I can live with this short term, as this is the first service break to affect me since joining the service in 2002. In an ideal world everthing would work all of the time, but having read many postings from many different forums re ISPs over thee years, NTL have more than satisfied my requirements. Inevitably, any service break is unfortunate, and causes great inconvenience to many, but a balanced view of the overall quality of NTL's service, will remind us all that they are pretty good!

I am on the south coast ( HANTS ) and agree verbatim with comments on NTL, overall a pretty good service .

blueyonder's problem seems to be fixed. I guess it must be NTL's turn now.

Valvegrid from your link - "Start time 13 Jul 01:00"; did they start early?

I sent one email yesterday and the recipient recieved 8 copies, and today I too have noticed emails remaining in my outbox even although they have been sent.

I sent one to my gmail account, it arrived but remained in my outbox to be sent with the next send reciev, so some people may have got a lot of emails from NTL customers!

No, they're clairvoyant :-)

georgemac, seems to be back online now and I have just received the same email from a friend 16 times, beats your 8 hands down.

As NTL appears to fixed this problem I will tick.
