When I started mucking about on the internet in the late nineties I never knew webmail existed. I just set up the mail program on the Mac, Outlook I think it was then, and carried on using that oblivious to the existence of webmail. It wasn’t until someone at the help desk told me that that was how to clean out the inbox of any large attachments if they were causing bother. I’ve always used a mail client since then so I thought I would take a wee look at the new layout that all the complaints are about. I never really used the old layout but the new one I’ve found can be customised to come pretty close to look like Mac Mail, the client I use. If I was coming to this layout new I don’t think I would have much problem with it. Maybe it’ll just take a bit of getting used to. I’ll still always use a mail client though, it just works better.
Just a thought!
Not only was there no webmail, there was no web!! Email has been around a lot longer than the web, unfortunately people nowadays think the internet is the worldwide web.

Couldn't agree more. Keeping your contacts and material info on your computer with a properly backed-up email client is also a more secure way of doing things than entrusting it to the cloud.
I'd leave yesterday , if it wasn't for the £400 plus "exit fee" , but when my contract expires , if it isn't fixed , I'll vote with my feet.

Leaving BT might only give you more grief.
Here's a link to some suggested e-mail clients for XP
Nothing to lose. If you don't like clients, then leave. But it's a big, disruptive decision - the devil you know and the devil you don't.
Quick update , phone-call from BT offshore service centre , telling of "great customer upset" , suggesting temporarily using Internet Explorer , that's even worse , it seems they are working on it...
