  1. Because of my faulty OE outgoing mail, as a back-stop, I'd like to use Webmail, I did go there, & sent a message, just to test it out, but when I went back to OS, it was returned, unable to deliver, or some such words, saying "SMTP error", I checked the outgoing address, it was OK, & put mine where it said "reply to", was that where I went wrong?, although it seemed logical enough.

    As info is very sparse on the Webmail site, how do you see your incoming / outgoing mail details, or can you only see the Wbmail generated ones?
    In general how do you negotiate the site, would anyone who uses Webmail please help?

    I think these are issues to take up with your ISP. Each ISP has their own "webmail".

    Thought you'd like to see the message that I received, when I tried to send an email via Webmail, does this give any clue as to why it was returned undelivered, I have, of course, deleted all relevant email address details-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This message was created automatically by mail delivery software.

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    SMTP error from remote mailer after RCPT TO:<david.:
    host esmime.virgin.co.uk []: 550 Rule imposed mailbox access for david refused

    ------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------

    David, thought I'd try out webmail as a backstop, my outgoing e-mails are
    being sent at the moment, this is just in case.

    You sure you did not make a typing error in David's email-address?

    Webmail normally makes no mistakes, only it's users!

    Quite simply, no, I checked, & double-checked, I wondered afterwards, did I have to enrol?, I couldn't see anyway to do this.

    Thanks for trying to help.

    By the way, my outgoing emails are a lot better, about 90% success now, Breathe now have a much improved support centre, they have all your account details, & facilities to amend accounts etc.**
    I had sent a long email to their old support centre complaining, [& boy, did I complain!] & got an automated reply giving the new address, so I cut & pasted my email to the new site, [getting good at that] now I'm waiting to see what they say,....I won't hold my breath!
    ** Among all the info, they say they are in the proceess of doing a systems update, so perhaps email connections will be put right, I only hope that I won't need to upgrade, as I did last year, it WASN'T at all easy!

    I know I should have put this on the other thread, but thought you'd like to know here.

    Have a good weekend,
