Re: hot spots

Just use your BT Broadband primary e-mail address and password.

Re: hot spots

   I was wrongly assuming I would use the email setting password to go with my email username, but on checking my broadband settings, that also has my email as the username, so as I would be connecting to BT broadband I should use broadband setting password, please confirm.  

Having set my BT email up as client based on my home PC. and that email account not being on the proposed laptop, is irrevelant?

Re: hot spots

if connecting to hotspot/btwifi then you need to use your primary btinternet.com address and password.

 

not sure what you mean about your hub username should bthomehub@btbroadband.com and any password

Re: hot spots

Hi wayfayer,

 

To login to a BTWifi (previously called BTFon/BTOpenzone) hot-spot, all you need to do is connect to the SSID and on the landing page enter your Primary BT Account email and password.

Landing page looks a bit like this:

For your emails you can either use the BT Yahoo Webmail interface here: http://mail.yahoo.com or you can use an email client such as Microsoft Outlook, Thunderbird, ect...

 

To use IMAP settings:

Incoming:

servername : imap.mail.yahoo.com

port: 993

Security: SSL/TLS

 

Outgoing:

servername: smtp.yahoo.com

port: 465

security: SSL/TLS

 

To use pop3:

Incoming:

servername (POP3)  : mail.btinternet.com

port: 110

 

 

Outgoing:

servername (SMTP)  : mail.btinternet.com

port: 25

 

For both mail client methods you use your BT Yahoo mail account username and password.

 

Hope that helps,

Cheers

I think you're reading too much into this.

 

The only relevance of BT's webmail to BT Wi-Fi hotspots is that the log-in details are the same. Whether you use an email client, webmail, or nothing at all has absolutely nothing to do with it. When you're in range of a hotspot you can simply connect to it as described by jac.
