Tiscali - online email access

  Jonathan314159 13:16 01 Jan 2004

Is it just me? - I haven't been able to get online access to the email system for the pat couple of days. And generally its a bit of a random experience.

Have two accounts, one with Lineone, the other Tiscali. When logging in, I just end up with a blank screen.

Perhaps you should have checked the Service Status page as users in the Edinburgh area and those on broadband are informed they could have problems at present.

I get the same until I shut down my Firewall, (Zone-Alarm pro), and refresh. Then all is fine.

I have no problems entering from this site:

I can't see the message that broadband users may have problems, and don't live anywhere near Edinburgh (or even Edinborough as Tiscali spell it).

But having said all that have now managed to log on.

Feels a bit like calling the AA out, only to find the car starts when they arrive - but thanks for you replies!

Clear enough to me:

which states for both Monday and Tuesday:

Due to planned network maintenance work, some Broadband Customers may experience minor outages. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

I was only assuming you may be on broadband.

They certainly can't spell Edinburgh though..:-)

It's the firewall that's the problem - have to disable it to get into the email.

I have ZA and it's never stopped me...:-)
