Orange email

Hi just wondered if anyone else is experiencing problems with orange email. I am getting a message 'cannot find server'. Is there anything I can do to try to resolve this problem as I am waiting for a very important email and cannot receive it at the moment. Any help appreciated

Same here, no email since about 3pm, no news update on Orange site either. *rap...

Try changing it to or smtp, wanadoo is rather old now.

I have tried all the POP's ans SMTP's and still no joy, even the webmail is not working when trying from Orange website...

This is bad when waiting for some documents to edit for a meeting tommorrow, looks like a late night or early morning.

Don't ring orange help, cos' they ae no help. Why do they cal it help when they can't, trade descriptions...

I managed to send them Orange) an e-mail asking what was going on via the 'Contact us' facility and received a response to say my query was being looked at; that was at 17:16.

To date nothing has changed. I still get an 'error' in OE and the message that, "The host '' could not be found. ...." so I presume it is Orange that is down - especially with the numbers affected here.

I also checked the Orange site. I can get into it but not my web mail account.

Perhaps, given the PCA report the other day that Chinese spammers were on the attack, their servers have been overwhelmed.

Very odd. My e-mail through Outlook is working but webmail is down.

No joy via OE or webmail
