    New Year New problem E mail


    0 Not allowed!
    I changed internet provider from Talk talk to Vodafone some 18 months ago but retained my Talk talk e Mail address. Now all of a sudden it has started showing wrong username or password when I try to log in and I know I am using the correct ones as it logs into my granddaughters with the same log in details

    Who should I contact to sort it out Vodafone my supplier, Talktalk my address provider or Google Chrome the browser I use. If I have to I will change my e mail address but would rather not. I uninstalled and re installed Chrome but that didnt help. Should I do the same with Windows 10? Any sensible help would be appreciated as getting frustrated.over this as I need to access my emails on my laptop.

      Talk Talk first I think.

      Read this:

      https://www.broadbandchoices.co.uk/a...ask-our-expert

      When you cancel TalkTalk (www.talktalk.co.uk) broadband, you'll still be able to send and receive mail from your email address for up to 12 months. However, you won't be able to access My Account, so you can't actually manage the email addresses associated to it - including things such as changing passwords. And if there's no action on your email account for six months, TalkTalk will automatically delete that email address.

      So, it's best to set up a new account from another service, and migrate things across from your TalkTalk email as soon as possible.


      My advice longer term would be to set up an email that is independent of an ISP (vodafone or Talk Talk) such as hotmail or gmail. I know its a hassle if people contact you regularly, but look at like moving house.

      Google email is superb. One of the best for Spam

      They generally work on the same technology if you remember to move spam to spam and move out of spam what isn't.

      It learns if you teach it.

      I lean to Microsoft because I tend to trust them. If you back a few years there were the "evil empire", but they've been clearly taken over by Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon.

      You can actually call Microsoft these days and remarkable a human on the end of a phone will gladly fix something for you,

      I lean to microsoft on all ALMOST everything, also. Though (IMO) Gmail definitely does a much better job (automatically categorising mail though into focused social, promotional, and spam which works great on one of my accounts) as a webmail service. Though I do like Outlook as a desktop client at work and at home, always have, and I choose not to have my gmail accounts linked to it. Microsoft for anything desktop, google for web is generally me
