Plusnet, BBC Watchdog

I have e-mailed BBC Watchdog about the poor Plusnet E-mail service. If any of you have 5mins to spare just E-Mail BBC Watchdog and explain your trouble with Plusnet its very easy.  Hopefully if there is enough of us Plusnet may be on Watchdog next week.

Good Luck

What email serviceHuh?  I now have over 100 emails in my inbox with no access at all for the last 3 days and I mean 'none'.  Just 'server error' or Service Unobtainable, Please Try Later messages.  It has been poor for about three months now.  The chat line people just refer you to the status page.  I don't think there is anyone left at PlusNet with the technical knowledge to sort this one.

If it went to air the Ceo would probably not reply to Watchdog and send a pigeon to do the dirty work

i wasn't talking about clients.

i was saying that it's insane to use an email service that is provided by an ISP.

Re: Plusnet, BBC Watchdog

Interesting regarding the discussion about ISP e mails and the use of clients.

I use G mail as a client on tablet's and phones and Outlook on my PC but I can only configure Outlook for one service at a time and I use that for my work e mail address, therefore if I want to read my PN e mails on my PC I have to use Webmail, unless anyone has a better suggestion
