Message 4 of 4

My Thunderbird email has stopped working on my PC and I cannot get it to connect. I have also tried my android phone and cannot connect to my account.

I know that the username and password are correct as I can login to webmail.

Can someone confirm that the server settings have changed?

 

Which ones should I be using for an @Tiscali.co.uk account?

 

Old:

imap.tiscali.co.uk
smtp.tiscali.co.uk

 

New:

smtp.talktalk.net

mail.talktalk.net

 

Any help and suggestions would be greatful.

 

Many thanks

 

Joe

Hi JoeF2021 

 

If you're not a TalkTalk Consumer (home broadband) customer your mailbox may get restricted to webmail only access unless you've subscribed to   TalkTalk Mail Plus to retain the use of a TalkTalk Mail email address.

 

If you have a mail message from TalkTalk about restriction or deletion of your TalkTalk managed email address and mailbox then add your TalkTalk mailbox address to a TalkTalk Consumer home broadband or MailPlus MyAccount to avoid deletion after 180 days. After 60 days the mailbox is restricted to webmail only access.

 

Here's the advice on Managing your email in MyAccount.

 

Prepare for TalkTalk Mail Support by including in your Community Profile:

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