I have two problems that have been ongoing for a week or so now.
First of all I cannot connect using Outlook or Thunderbird using imap.mail.yahoo.com. I've used this for a year or two now with minimal problems. Recently it has started to play up and for the last few days I cannot download any emails usign it to my laptop.
Does any one know if there is a known problem with this?
Secondly, if I use the web browser to connect to my BTYahoo email account then I can read emails, send text only replies but I cannot attach any files to an email i create.
Is there a problem with this too
Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
I would look first at the port you are trying to connect to, it may be that it has been changed and your mail client is trying to connect to the " old " port.
Perhaps port numbers 993 or 143 ???
Thaks for replying.
It seems to be working today!!
When I set it up initially I used port 993 and I set it up over 2-3 years ago at least and have had no problems until recently.
I also seem to be receiving at least one of the rogue "BT Email limit exceeded" emails every day now and they come from btinterent.com email addresses.
