I am a Tiscali email user and TalkTalk phone/broadband account holder. Like many other Tiscali email users, I've been receiving the emails telling me to register the email address.
So I have tried to set up My Account, and with a/c & phone numbers, a verification code was duly sent to my Tiscali email address.
But when I then tried "Register My Account" with the same email address, it tells me that "your email doesn't match our records"
Strange - it matched to send me the verification code. Something not right here, please help
You're a TalkTalk broadband customer so I'm wondering if you already have a MyAccount. Or have you not previously had a MyAccount for your broadband billing?
If the tiscali mailbox is associated with a former MyAccount then it'll need to be unlinked from that to be able to be added to your current broadband MyAccount. The TalkTalk team will need to do that for you.
Please do a quick check that your Community Profile includes in Personal Information (Click here) your name, current TalkTalk landline 'phone number and an alternate number (mobile recommended) and address with postcode (location). Then scroll down to Private notes to add email address(es) with any relevant other notes and finally save changes. TalkTalk's Community Team OCE will then locate your registered TalkTalk details.
Thanks for your prompt reply, but not so easy.
I tried to complete the community profile - but I am told that my emai address is already registered to another account.
So I tried your suggestion that maybe I was already registered on My Account, but when I tried the forgotten password link, I am told that the email address is not registered.
Something is clearly messed up with my email address and my account. I had issues about a year ago but I thought you had sorted it - but clearly not.
Please fix this

In relation to this Community Profile you've registered it and verified it with another email address. Not a problem. Trying to change this Community Profile's email address to the tiscali email address and being told it's already registered to another account simply means that you have 2 Community member names registered. This one and another one that was registered with the tiscali email address.

The tiscali email address is not registered as a MyAccount username. OK, that's useful to know. It might still have been added to a former MyAccount for mailbox management.
Do you already have a broadband MyAccount for your current broadband billing? You'll not be able to sign up for another.
I have not setup a community profile or My Account with my Tiscali email address. I keep things really simple - I only have one email address and my broadband billing is sent by paper.
So I do not know who has been using my email address. Please delete the community profile and My Account using my email address - allow me to start again.
Hi AndyB5, have you tried registering again since it failed? If you have when did you originally register?
I have tried to register again - I get the response as noted above "email doesn't match our records"
I have not registered before, as I said above.
Can you fix this or not?
If not, I have no alternative but to leave Talk Talk
Hi Andy, in that case I'll have to raise the request to have it added for you. I've sent you a personal message to obtain the information needed.
