Re: Problems connecting to email

Re advice from Moderator to ensure login at www.bt.com/mail then the answer is that does not work

The result is:  

This site can’t be reached

samlfed.bt.com took too long to respond.

Try:

Having mega problems connecting to BT email

Having problems connecting to my BT mail. Finding it very difficult to get through to check emails.  Normally I use IE but have tried other search engines including Chrome and Edge.  Keep getting message Error Code INET_E_RESOURCE_NOT_FOUND Windows diagnostics tells me that my computer is configured correctly Samfeld BT is not responding. Have spoken to BT who tell me that because I can still receive and send emails on my iphone and ipad the fault is with my desktop settings.  Can anybody please advise on how get onto to settings and fix problem.  I am a bit of a techno phobe.   Thanks in anticipation

IE is not supported on BT Yahoo mail anymore pretty much Microsoft themselves want to get rid of it -  use Edge, Firefox or Chrome ideally.
