Although Thunderbird says it is connected to pop3.blueyonder.co.uk, it does not download any emails. Any one else having this problem,except me and the wife who is on a different PC with Vista while I use XP
Thanks Woolwell, but I don't want to use Virgin Media Webmail. Although I am forced to do so at the moment.
Jock1e I think you have nailed it. I get nothing on the bottom bar when I open Thunderbird, but if I click Get Mail, the bottom bar states "Connected to pop3.blueyonder.co.uk and remains like that untill I shut it down.
Is this Virgin trying to force everyone to use Webmail.
Bit like Microsoft and Internet Explorer. Illegal I seem to remember.
Thanks for the replies, I have spent over an hour on hold at the 150 number.
Sorry Woolwell you were correct. I have kept my original Blueyonder address, but changed the pop3 and SMTP settings to virginmedia.com, and Hey Presto a sack full of emails poured into thunderbird. The mark up another stike for the unofficial PC Advisor's. A very happy Tireddad. Thanks again.
I am having the same problem as tired dad, I use thunderbird and same thing is happening. I read on the virgin site to change port to 110...mine currently is 995. I tired this and then my AVG popped up with a warning. As I'm not one for messing around with settings I am a bit worried I am going to make matters worse.
