If you don't use your master email account then set up one of your sub accounts which you do use to check it then you won't need to worry about it going over the 150day period.
Is this the procedure you are referring to and does this checking get carried out automatically without any actions required by me?
Check Other Email Accounts with Yahoo! Mail
To set up Yahoo! Mail for checking other email accounts:
I am confused and do not fully understand the message that BT is emailing.
Can somebody please tell me does the phrase 'to log in' mean the same as 'to use' in terms of BT emailing.
I do use my BT email for sending and receiving some emails so is this the same as 'logging on'. Not been online very long so please can someone clarify? ljm
have you read all the posts in this thread?
you need to access your account whether logging in directly or like many via a third party email client. you don't need to send any emails just access the account
Yes, logging on, to use and logging in all mean the same.
If you send emails from your BTY email account then you have logged on to do this. You may not realise that you have logged on because you may be using an email client such as Windows Live or Outlook but when it was set up your log on details would have been entered and the email client automaticaly logs on when you send and receive.
If you don't use an email client you must be using webmail which means you will be enetering your email address or username and password ( this is logging on) inorder to send and receive email.
In short if you are sending and receiving emails on your BT account, however you do it then you are logging on and don't need to worry about the 150 days.
Thanks Aspiring Expert for your reply. It was very helpful. I enter my BT email ad and Password on a Log In Page which is situated before my Home Page not before my Email Account. I suppose from what you say, it makes no difference where the BT log in page is situated so long as I use the account.Am I correct?
