Digital spy and Gmail

  Kev.Ifty 00:35 16 Jun 08

I have been a member of the Digital Spy click here site for a couple of years. Now I find am not allowed to post because I have a Gmail email address.

What is so wrong with my Gmail addy? I am registered here on PCA with the same Email address without any problems.

They what a fiver (£5) to join with a Gmail type email addy!

I've come across this before.

Some sites will only accept an TSP provided e-mail address.

Presumably it's some sort of security thing.

i find i often get no reply from gmail emails from companies, they seem to block them on mass.

I have a feeling this is an anti-SPAM measure. I belong to several sites that wont accept Gmail and similar addresses as they have been used by Spammers in the past.

I would contact them via their Contact Us page in the Forums contact section click here or via the "Tell us your views" on the Site Blog click here "add comments" section.

Tell them you've been a member for years and why should you suddenly have to pay for access?

If this doesn't elicit a waiver from them, get a free 02 webmail account like Belfmans wife.
