Re: Problem checking web mail

POP3 & SMTP seems to be working fine (which I use most often) its appears the fault is limit to the Web Access.

Agreed. No problems here using Thunderbird as mail client with the advantage that you have local copies of all the mail.

Use both. Use a webmail provider that supports a client - pretty much all of them do. I don't know any that don't.

Re: Problem checking web mail & e-mail

My mail has been playing up. I originally thought it was because I bought a new PC which I had to set up.

I found my passwords in windows live mail using mailpassview. It works a treat.
I also had the virgin info for setting up windows live mail.

My partners a/c was working fine, using live mail or webmail from virgin media.
I had 2 original a/c's @ ntlworld.com they refused to work with webmail but worked with windows live mail. I then set up a new a/c @ virginmedia.com. This will work with webmail only, with live mail it will not work at all. This last week my partners e-mail now refuses to work.

So it would seem to appear that all my troubles are the fault of Virgin and not me.

I do hope peoples answers will get through virgins mail system SOMETIME

Forward your emails to something like Gmail even if VM mail crashes you'll still be able to read them
