Hi 

I'm trying to password reset my instagram account that my tiscali email is linked to. But I'm not receiving these emails. I've noticed that i haven't been receiving emails from both Facebook and Instagram (the same social media network) for some time now and I'm starting to believe that it is a TT fault/block, as I can see that the emails from the social media sites have been sent.

I've reset my tiscali password, updated my reset details, checked spam folder, checked home safe was off, checked I can send and receive emails (I can) and checked my email filters but nothing works. Please can someone help as its important

Nothing yet I'm afraid. I've sent a chaser for you.

It may take a few days based on past similar queries.

I'll ask TalkTalk Mail Support to check your tiscali email address for inbound mail from Facebook at around 7:50GMT today.

Hi I have changed the email linked to my Facebook account to a hotmail which did work and I received it. When I changed it back to tiscali it changed effectively on the Facebook server but I didn't receive the email. Is there anything else that can be done?

The Facebook mail sender may have suppressed sending even though the user is told that mail has been sent. So, without Facebook Support help to reset the sender the workaround is to use an alternative verification method / change the email address that won't be suppressed and check that works before changing the email address back which should then reset their system for you.

I can't currently do that with instagram as I'm locked out and trying to get back in with that email that's not receiving. I have reset my Facebook login email (as its the same login details I use for instagram) but I still didn't receive an email from them. I checked on Facebook and they have sent it but its still not been received in my inbox

I get the feel that Insta and Facebook are suppressing sending. This can happen if there's an issue with getting mail delivered. But what we've just worked through indicates deliverability is currently good. 

 

What I'd do is change the email address to reset the sending. Prove they are sending, then change the email address back.

I have checked the email is correct and it is. There was also a time that I was receiving emails from them so I know it did once work

Ok, if you see the no rule defined message when re-checking Filter rules then there is nothing set up in your mailbox to stop the messages from Insta or Facebook appearing in your Inbox. 

 

Have you been able to sign in to check Insta and Facebook accounts to confirm that the email address is listed correctly?

I check the rule filters - nothing is there 

The message I sent to myself with my email address was sent and received 

I view my messages online on the talktalk mail website either mobile or desktop versions

Some details of the checks would be nice. Did you see the no rule defined message when re-checking Filter rules?

 

And the message sent to yourself is still in the Inbox?

 

You didn't say how you normally collect/ view your mail messages...

Hi Afe20 

 

Prepare for TalkTalk Mail Support by including in your Community Profile, Personal Information (here):

  • Your name, current TalkTalk home 'phone number. An alternative (mobile preferred) contact number. Full address with postcode (Location)
  • Scroll down to Private notes to add your tiscali email address(es), notes and references etc
  • After checking and updating, Save changes

 

Have you checked via the TalkTalk Mail webmail sign in?

 

Select here: Sign in to TalkTalk Mail

Enter your tiscali email address and password, select Sign in.

 

Check the  Inbox first and then check  Spam and  Trash folders for mail messages that may have been diverted from the Inbox. Bear in mind the spam and trash folders normally contain mail not older than 30 days.

 

Compose and self-send the same mailbox a mail message. Check that the message sends without error, is copied into the Sent objects folder and arrives and stays in the Inbox.

 

Mail not reaching the Inbox could mean there's a Filter rule, including an Auto forward which is a special filter rule, that's diverting, discarding or blocking mail.

  • To check, select the Main Settings menu icon      triple line icon top right on the blue header
    (Mobile browser? use the desktop version)
  • Select Settings from the top of the menu
  • Select the inward facing arrowhead by Mail (or Email) in the left side panel
  • Select Filter Rules
    If there's no rule defined, that's perfect
  • To delete a Filter rule including any Auto forward
    select the Dustbin icon    to the right of the rule
    The icon background will turn red    
  • To confirm you really want to delete this Filter rule
    Select the blue Delete button

Let us know of any error message, or if mail did not arrive in the Inbox or disappeared from the Inbox. 

 

Let us know if you found Filter Rules? If you didn't set those up then your mailbox password has been discovered. 

 

How do you normally collect / view your mail messages?
