Hi @Simonyates19 


Your UKGateway mailbox should be active on the TalkTalk Mail platform (sign in here).


I don't know if you're aware that there's just one mailbox for each UKGateway master email address and all alias email addresses associated with that master address. You'd normally sign in to the mailbox using the master email address and its password. All aliases will be recognised and mail sent to the master mailbox.


Early customers to UKGateway email were assigned a master email address and they could create aliases. But your email address may well be a master address in its own right.


Have you set up password recovery Reset details?


Password Reset details should have been set up for the master UKGateway email address so that an alternate email and or mobile number can receive a password reset. Please do try the Forgotten your Password? option.


There will be up to 3 options if normal password recovery options are there:

  1. The mailbox itself for routine password changes when the current password is known
  2. A mobile number for a 6 digit password reset code sent by SMS text
  3. An alternative email address for a password reset link

If options 2 or 3 are available then you have the tools to set a new password to access your tiscali mailbox at the TalkTalk Mail sign in here.  But ensure you recognise the options from the hints. Don't use them if you don't recognise them.


If only option 1 is there or you don't recognise the alternatives then you'll need TalkTalk to set up password recovery Reset details.


Let us know what you see.
