Message 15 of 15

Every attempt this morning to download messages for my screaming.net address gets immediate failure.

 

Your server has unexpectedly terminated the connection. Possible causes for this include server problems, network problems, or a long period of inactivity. Error Number: 0x800CCC0F

 

Is there a problem with it as was working fine yesterday ?

Well thats clearly a different issue to the fault experienced Friday/Saturday and, after all, everything related to Pipex email is a law unto itself.

The Webmail fault is still the same when trying to access dsl.pipex.com accounts.

Yes, all "back to normal" - let's see how long for this time. I only really use my Tiscali email for my TalkTalk account these day because it's so unreliable. Gmail and Live never fail, so they're my main choices now.

Tiscali POP servers are still working OK for me this morning and I can now get into Webmail and thats working OK too. For me at least looks like TTs engineers have successfully fixed the problem.

I hope it does but when have TT ever done this for previous incidents - never in my experience. I remain highly skeptical.

With having no response from support on here for a couple of days, I contacted support via Live Chat. As soon as I said I had a Webmail issue, I was told that they currently have a critical error across the board with e-mails and compensation will be offered to all affected, and when the issue is fixed this credit will show up on your account.

My email client can now successfully connect with the Tiscali POP server but now I cannot login to webmail to see if thats working OK too. Just one problem after another!

 

I am curious about this talk of compensation. Who at TT said this and where/how? What form will it take?

I have just had a compensation will be awarded message from TalkTalk too! Apparently there is a total loss of e-mail service?

Compensation? I doubt it, but that's a first having them mention it! Thank you for the info.

I just had a live chat and got this:

Alright there is currently a known issue with our email service which is being investigated. Engineers are currently working to find a resolution to the problem. We hope to have the service back up and running again as soon as possible. There will be compensation provided for this total loss of service.

I'm getting that too. My advice is to use a different email service because TalkTalk/Tiscali is very unreliable! I only use it occasionally now because there are alway problems with it.

With Webmail, I get this message -

 

Unknown Hostname

 

The DNS for a domain points at this server, but no virtual host has been created.
