Hi, welcome to the forums.

Can you give a little more detail, like are you accessing emails via webmail using a browser, or an app/client via a laptop or smart device?

Are you getting any actual error messages?

Are you a BTBroadband customer or BT Premium Email user?

Re: Locked out of BTinternet email

Thank you for your reply.  The message I get is a drop down menu reading - Cannot Get Mail, The mail server "mail.beinernet.com" is not responding.  Verify that you have entered the correct account info in Mail Settings.

This I have done countless times and got no further since March 7.  Can only access emails via the web MyBT

What dropdown menu? Which app/client is this? What device are you using?

Re: Locked out of BTinternet email

Am having enormous trouble accessing BT mail from my MacBook Air.  Suddenly MyBT has refused to recognise my password.  Will I be able to delete BT mail and open a new Connection Gmail?

Regards

You don't have to delete BTMail in order to use Gmail - they are completely separate entities.

Re: Locked out of BTinternet email

I know this is an old one - but the same thing happened to me recently - one of my accounts was locked out of everything but Web Mail - I am a Halo Broadband customer. 

After much examination I discovered that the email account with a problem had been (wrongly) defined as a basic account and separated from the rest of my account. It had to be 'fixed' by BT people re-coding the account (couldn't be done by me) and re-associating it with my account, and updating the server (which was turning back the account because it had it listed as 'basic').  Once that was done it took about 4 hours for the server actually to update itself.

You need BT people assistance for this (if that indeed was the cause of your problem) - but it is addressable. It has nothing, I believe, to do with other changes BT has made on Web Mail.
