Re: BT Yahoo! Mail

I wasn't asked if I wanted to transfer and did not offer.
I didn't even know the system had restarted - it just happened with receipt of an email from BT telling me it had been done and advising to check server details etc.
I ultimately spoke to the Customer Services because I have a second BTYahoo email address which has not transferred.
The understanding is that migration is being done slowly in small batches over a period of time - so we wait and see how it goes.
To date I have not read of any issues this time - which after the chaos three years or so ago must be encouraging.

Re: BT Yahoo! Mail

It appears you are incorrect Sir. After 5 years of being told it will never happen, looks like I have just been migrated to BTMail - yeeharrrr!

Re: BT Yahoo! Mail

Six months on from my post above about my secondary msil address being moved from BT Yahoo mail to BT mall my Primary address haa just been transferred as well so the work is obviously still ongoing.

As I decided to remove and reinstall for a clean start I had slight issue where setup put Port 25 for Out going mail using IMAP and had to be changed to 465.

Re: BT Yahoo! Mail

Sadly it seems, Port 25 is inserted at times when you allow automatic set up.

For less 'savvy' users this may well prove a nuisance.

Re: BT Yahoo! Mail

It all depends on which email client/app you are using. If port 25 is selected it is usually an "older" email client that is being used and the "onboard" wizard/set up has not been updated.

Actually port 25 is still supported, although why anybody should want to use an insecure port I don't know.

Obviously port 25 won't work if SSL is selected as it is not a secure port nor will port 465 work without SSL selected.
