I can log into my email but every time i try to open one all i get is.

There was an error loading the message. Please try again later.

This has been going on for days not and later has never come. Any chance you can fix this:confused:

Hi King of Scotland

Have you tried a different browser?

Firefox is having hissy fits with me at the moment, (only on the talk talk sites), whereas IE8 is working properly (well 95%) anyway.

Im using internet explorer 8 fred.
Plus since i can log on,
you would think not being able to open the email is T.T fault.
As it's their error message poping up to try later...

Thanks;)

Fair enough, worth a try.

Lots of the talk talk site is currently playing up, the developers are trying to migrate the old site to the new one and it's causing some difficulties it seems, but as it is now affecting the web mail system and the my account pages, perhaps, just perhaps, the Beta will be gone soon....lollollollol

Could you try now? It appears that the engineers have been working on this issue today and my webmail account is now accessible, although it is still reporting an error regarding slow delivery.

Have tried using a email client like Thunderbird? You might get to your email quicker.

i don't even know what that is bud:|

Thunderbird is an email client that you download to your pc/mac. This allows you to send and receive emails without having to open a web browser and login to your webmail.
It is a relatively easy programme to set up and quite easy to use. If you would be interested I have included a link to the website here: www.mozillamessaging.com/en-GB/thunderbird/
My regards

A few years back talk talk had the same problems and they sent out a link showing you how to set up OUTLOOK EXPRESS. So you could use it to import your emails.

I've long since formated my pc & forget how to do it...
This would be another option i'd much rather use if anyone knew where to find such a link.

Thanks for all the input;)

Done & working barney & billybob
I just opened this from TT using outlook, I don't think they'll mind me posting...

Dear TalkTalk Webmail User,
We are really sorry for the inconvenience we are making you pass through,we
are having problem with our database due to our recent upgrade and we can
not find your data. Please we need to rectify this problem before the next
24-hours if not, you may not be able to send or receive email with your
TalkTalk e-mail address.
:s

maybe they should have a word with outlook express, as to where they found it..

Thanks all;)

Can I just check that you are now able to access you emails? The TT message is in broken English which even I find hard to understand - and I am not English!!

Yes!

I only added one of my talktalk emails into outlook express and it found over 496 messages. The message i just posted, talktalk must have sent that to my email account, which outlook found first try.

Got this email from TalkTalk & after logging in, which was really slow. I’m still getting the same problem.
But what's worse, TalkTalk want me to pay too speak to them on the phone, yet it's their problem..... Unacceptable TalkTalk :(

TT email:
We have spoken to the Tiscali engineers who have informed us
that planned maintenance has been completed between Tuesday 12th and Friday 15th October 2010.

If your email is still not working, please contact Tiscali
directly on 0871 222 3311 [calls are charged at 10p a minute from BT landlines,
or 5p a minute from a TalkTalk landline. Calls from mobiles or other networks may vary.

Hmmm. Seems that this may be an email service associated with a Tiscali account. Were you with Tiscali previously? If this is the case, although TT have absorbed Tiscali, the two have not been completely merged yet and you may therefore have to contact Tiscali direct for them to resolve this issue.:(
