Re: BT anniversary

@TTman Even more important is that IP address yours? If it is I'd be a bit like @Champnet  Check the device out.

 

And if the IP address is yours, I'd suggest you delete it from your post.

Ever helpful. Grin Sure, I’d love to help you out. Now which way did you come in?

Re: BT anniversary

@TTman I don't know if you use plain text for emails but it comes in very handy for sorting out (scam) emails simply because any (click here) link is replaced with the actual address that its linking to. I avoid html for email like bubonic plague (or should that read Covid nowadays).
