Ok the information provided doesn't match what's held on system so I can't provided any information. What I can do is raise a fault ticket. These typically get a response in 5-7 working days. I'm on leave next week so you'll need to post a chaser on the community to ask a colleague to check for updates for you.

I'll sum up my understanding.

 

Hornette is:

  • No longer a TalkTalk customer and is a customer of Sky Broadband.
  • Aware of TalkTalk MailPlus but is not a current subscriber.
  • Aware of the email notification from TalkTalk that the tinyworld email is limited to webmail only access and deletion around January 2022.

 

Hornette has:

  • Changed the email password to lock out potential hackers.
  • Set the webmail auto-sign out feature to also lock out potential hackers.
  • Signed in just to webmail from one device via Sky Broadband. No knowledge at this time if a VPN hosted overseas is in use but I have asked the question.

 

The email address has only a few months' of life left assuming Hornette does not wish to subscribe to MailPlus.  But in those final months we're just trying to get to the root cause of why the sending is rate limited.

Ady,

We don' t have an account number that I recall - our tinyworld.co.uk email address was transferred to TalkTalk some years ago after they took over the company that took over from Tiny (I don't remember who they were) many years ago.  More recently we had TalkTalk broadband, but don't have that any more.  I am, therefore, at a loss to provide you with any current account number/password.

Your account number and 2 characters from your telephone enquire password. Or if you don't have a password setup you can provide the account number/landline number and the email and mobile registered to the account and of course always your full name and if you're the account holder.

I expect you are. 

 

From what you've said and done so far I would say there's  obvious evidence of multiple concurrent logins to your email mailbox. But that's what the system believes. 

 

So, TalkTalk will likely raise a fault ticket for investigation.

Hi Gondola, 

 

Have done the automatic sign out and left it 24 hours.  Logged back in now and am unable to send as getting the TT608 message again.  Am extremely frustrated.

 

Regards.

I agree.  I have no reason to believe that the Sky allocated IP address would be confused with an overseas network. 

 

Which leaves us back to looking at why the system gives the appearance of rate limiting your sending. 

 

For webmail are you using the Opera browser and its built in VPN? Or using Internet Security that features a VPN eg Norton, Kaspersky or AVG as just three examples?

 

A password change should have locked out any unauthorized connection. It might be worth forcing a sign out by enabling the automatic sign out.

 

Go to the TalkTalk Mail main settings icon, the triple line icon top right header bar or cog icon if using a mobile device browser.

 

  • Select Settings from the menu
  • Select Basic Settings in the left side panel
  • Set the automatic sign out for 5 minutes (you can disable this when you're sure there are no rogue logins)
  • Sign out 
  • If possible, leave the mailbox overnight
  • Sign back in to webmail and recheck the sending initially by sending to your own mailbox.

Hi Gondola,

Thanks for the response.

It is unlikely that our IP address is not being recognised as in the UK as we are not on a full fibre network and we are provided by Sky.   Yes, I am aware that TalkTalk are limiting email to webmail if we do not have an active broadband account or TalkTalk Mail Plus (their recent communication indicates that will continue until January).  We only access our mail through webmail, and have done for many years.

We would, therefore, appreciate it if you could investigate further.

Hi Hornette 

 

As your network connection is not to the TalkTalk network it's possible that the mail system is rate limiting because it thinks you're not in the UK because the public IP address is not recognised as an UK address.

 

This has been known to happen when broadband is supplied on a full fibre network usually by one of the newer network providers.

 

Are you also aware that TalkTalk are limiting email to webmail only if users are not taking a TalkTalk home broadband service?

Hi,

Yes, we changed the password, but we then got a TT505 error, at which point you said to wait 24 hours before logging in, which we now have done and, as described were able to send 3 messages before getting the TT608 message again.

 

We do not have TalkTalk Broadband, we now just have our @tinyworld.co.uk email.

And you confirm that you have upgraded the mailbox password? A password change is necessary to lock out any new unauthorised sign in to the mailbox.

 

Are you connected to the TalkTalk broadband network from home when trying to send mail?

Thanks for the further advice Gondola.  However, that has not helped.  We logged off and waited a further 24 hours (more than) then logged back in.  Initially I was able to send 3 messages, but when sending the 4th I got the TT608 error message again.  The 4th message I was sending was to one of the recipients it had already allowed me to send a message to.  I was not logged in anywhere else, and I was accessing via webmail on a laptop.  Please can you help, this is really frustrating?

Hi Hornette 

 

If you're still receiving the TT608 error message after changing the password its because the precautionary rate limiting has not yet been lifted. You may need to wait 24 hours for the rate limiter to get back to normal. To ensure this does reset it would be worth not connecting to the mailbox for a day and then just signing in to webmail from one location only.  If the webmail sign ins happened to be from quite separate geographic locations then this can be seen by the mail system as a potentially compromised mailbox.

 

For example, if you happened to be using an Internet browser via a VPN that was hosted in Holland, say, and also signed in from your home broadband then this could trigger the rate limiting.

 

The TT505 error is unrelated. It's indicating that the Recipient Domain is Invalid. i.e. you're sending to an email address domain that doesn't exist.  This fail can happen either if the address is miskeyed or if the contacts database (the address book linked to the email software) is corrupted.

Dear Gondola,

 
I thought we had cracked it!  Unfortunately not.
 
I made sure everything was logged out, did a scan for viruses etc., changed the password for the mail (following receipt of the reset code) and was able to send one message. BUT, only one, I am now getting the same error message.  
 
Have tried logging in from another computer and we are unable to send from there and are getting a TT505 error message.
 
We always login via webmail (and in fact can normally be logged in from 2 places at the same time). Would be grateful if you look into this further.
 
Thanks in advance

Hi Hornette 

 

The TT608 error is detection of multiple concurrent logins or attempted logins to your mailbox from geographically distanced locations.

 

A potential sign of a compromised mailbox but can be caused if the user's devices are signed in via distanced access points. For example, one of your devices may be a mobile signed in via a VPN host or a workplace and you're also signed in at home i.e. a false positive for hacking.

 

So if you sign out of all devices, scan devices to ensure they're clean of viruses, trojans and password grabbing malware and then change your password using the Reset password now button in the help page  Changing your email password preferably using a reset code of 6 digits sent to your recovery mobile number. A hacker wouldn't physically have your mobile to know you're changing the password.

 

Just use TalkTalk Mail webmail for the time being with a single sign in to prove you can send mail.

 

Select here: Sign in to TalkTalk Mail

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

 

Let us know how you're normally signed in to TalkTalk Mail and the ways you were viewing your mail messages when the issue first happened.  For example, were you using Outlook for email? Signed in at home and at work?
