Pipex Mail Problems 24/10/08

Cannot access webmail again this morning. Username and password has worked since 2001.
Anybody else having problems?

What is current technical support phone number?

Should be fixed today. Webmail upgrade is taking place although the site does not actually tell you that you wont be able to log in.

There are a lot of disgruntled Pipex users I'm afraid at the moment mainly due to lack of accurate information from them.

My problem is that the pipex server is trying to download all 625 messages in my webmail inbox to Outlook Express when all of these messages have already been downloaded in the past. Every time that I open Outlool Express this happens!!
Unless they get these problems sorted pretty soon, I will be leaving Pipex.

To restore normal working simply access your mail accounts and replace % with @ in the username

Thanks for that! Why didn`t Pipex tell us that?

Thank you (hope that is not too premature!).

Problems yesterday accessing mail account but seems okay this lunchtime. Nothing changed in account details.

dunno but I picked it up from click here from someone who expresses the same sentiment.

I'm assuming it's a permanent fix at the moment but I can reverse it easily if it isn't.

Just tried it with the original % in the account name (using Outlook) and with @. Both seem to work.

My impression is that it is slower accessing the mail than it was days ago, but it's the same which ever symbol you use.

Agree it would be nice to feel that Pipex/Tiscali communicated a lot better on what they are doing.

Yes mine is working with either now as well so it must have been sorted by today as they promised.

Just a pity they weren't a bit more specific for their customers who have loads of choice nowadays.

Perhaps it's me but can't access Pipex mail this evening.
Is there something about Thursday evenings that I should know about, as it was the same last week?
