tiscali pop setup, tell me what I'm missing

Hi all,

Have a number of email accounts with a number of ISPs. This has come about over the years with not wanting to change my 'public' email address. In fact everything now goes to my web domain adress to my current isp and I use Outlook Express to access it.

Everything is working fine and I am accessing three email accounts on my behalf and another three which are secondary accounts in another OE identity (My wife's)

One out of these six accounts is not behaving as expected, one of the secondary accounts.

It is the Tiscali account which I can reach with webmail but even though OE seems to checking this account (connecting.... authorising.....disconnecting) it is not downloading the messages.

Checked, triple checked settings, looked at Tiscali help, anyone here any ideas?

Thanks, Epirb.

I'm not sure what their servers are playing at but I know I'm not the only one who has probs collecting my mail. They won't admit to any probs, and their support is crapolla.

It seems a script was used for wol and screaming mail to forward the old style addresses ie; [email protected] to [email protected] , a lot of people have found that news letters etc that they signed up to with the old style address have stopped working, having said that i have looked on tiscalis forums today and their support are saying that these emails should come through in the next 24 hours, will have to wait and see on that, i personally have had none of my old style adressed emails since the weekend and chose to signup using the new style address just in case.

They did have problems a couple of days ago and it was acknowleged on their website but they are now solved but I seem to have this bizarre hangover!

note the username has changed from username.worldonline.co.uk swapping the dot for an @ , thats across the board.

Yep with you there but this is a [email protected] acoount and shouldn't be affected and as I say, I'm sure I've rechecked this accounts settings both anainst the website and my other accounts......strange....??

If the emails are there on the server they should still download, i know sometimes if i try checking for mail within a half hour of using webmail it refuses to work.

How long has this been like it for you? if just this week it may just be because of the ongoing work and will hopefully be resolved soon, one of my Tiscali addys refused to download a couple of times yesterday but appears ok now.

  Epirb406 13:51 04 Aug 06

I assume that that is tahe case but until wednesday neither of the accounts would connect. 1 then connected and downloaded and the other is connecting but not down loading, very strange.

I can log into webmail and see that mail is still being received. I am as we type checking the possibilities of sending mail from web mail.

Epirb406, I've had these probs for 3 weeks or more. Some friends say their mail is being bounced, even when I collect it via OE.

That would be easy but not productive.

Anyone any ideas?
