Is there a problem with TalkTalk this morning. I use Outlook for my mail with a @ tiscali.co.uk and @hotmail.co.uk addresses, the Hotmail is coming through OK but not the TalkTalk. When I go online into TT Webmail and click on new mail I get the message "Cannot connect to server" I have had about 40 minutes having an online conversation with Lakesh? which got me nowhere. Is it their fault and should I hold off for a day to see if it comes back ?

"Is there a problem with TalkTalk this morning"

With me its every day, with the TalkTalk Webmail service. If you check, you may well find that there is a possible message regarding the Webmail service ( Our engineer's are working on it).

Only yesterday, I was in contact with TalkTalk, and once again, they agree the service is not providing the service it should,but they are "working on it".

Spuds, I have just had 1 email through, informing me you had posted on here. That's a start. Hopefully it may be getting sorted. My Account finishes April next year and I think I'll migrate to Plusnet or another. as you say with TalkTalk it's one thing after another.

I seem to recall that you might have been having problems with TalkTalk Webmail services the other day. Is that all in the past now?.

If it wasn't you, then apologies.

Yes, I had the problem wher the big Talk talk problem arose but it seems OK now. I switch off my PC overnight and use the webmail in the morning to block / delete / bar any overnight spam. I am getting a few spams but not daily. Getting regular 7 - 8 Mbps . Had a big issue with them on speed some time ago and I am sure they had to reset the exchange software - they tried as usual to get me to use the test socket etc but I have my router and desktop upstairs and built in. All working ok so I am staying as the faff of e mail changing is daunting.

Changing ISPs isn't all that bad. You can start changing your email addy long before you change your ISP. Have a look at this , it's a good guide.

Thanks for the link, a very interesting read. Changing ISP's with the possibility of losing the email address, was always a worry for me.

Thanks for the link rdave13,I'll be migrating somewhere 2016 from TalkTalk. spuds, I have a @hotmail.co.uk address that I can still access. I never sign up to anything from this address and it keeps all the Spam in my TalkTalk account. TalkTalk Webmail still down this morning.

Seems to be back to normal at the moment, but I think I'll be moving when my contract is up next year.
