ntls email service?

  Life's-Good 22:26 17 May 2004

Hi all just want a check. Was using outlook express for checking my ntlworld email. Does anyone know if there are problems with it lately? It just attempts to connect forever and then says it wont respond. Then i changed to microsoft outlook, it recieved all my email messages ok. But after a delay. Thanks for any help.

Outgoing Email issues

ntl customers attempting to send email may currently find the mails take a long time to send, and may time out while trying to do so. This is due to a technical fault. Our engineers are aware and are working towards a resolution as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.

I have been waiting for an e-mail for ove 40 minutes now. I have been receiving e-mails tonight from all different times today.

It looks like some of the servers are down.

There's always problems with it!

NTL Email is positively the worst email 'service' I've ever used. Frequent drop outs, server socket errors, unable to authenticate.

A while ago I got an email telling me how wonderful their new service would be now that they've changed suppliers. I guess I shouldn't have held my breath!

You are very lucky! I've been having the same problems as the other people on this thread, though it seems to be ok this morning - it'll probably go off again now I've said that :-).

Had same problems with ntl email, but seems ok so far, this morning

I had problems sending last night but seems to be ok this morning but the status page at ntl is still showing the problem as ongoing. So they are probably sorting it out in areas.

Wanted to order an item from ARGOS but out of stock. ARGOS will email me when in stock. ARGOS emailed me at 16:00 yesterday but didn’t receive email until 18:45.
Tried to order item again from ARGOS straight away but out of stock again – Thanks NTL
