Thread: Spark Email out

  1. #1

    Default Spark Email out

    My email went out late last night and on checking this am still out. Spark advise that this is a known problem
    and their experts are still working on it. Hope to have it sorted today...? Just a heads-up in case it helps someone else.

    Try webmail, should work (see below).
    xtra email users need to consider a planb. Chances are there will be more issues as Spark move the email off Yahoo


    from the spark status page

    Mmm - I did eventually use webmail, but Outlook is my preferred option (I keep my world sorted - to a degree - there)!

    Working in outlook with IMAP on one computer, not working in Thunderbird with POP mail on the other rig - gives an internal error.
