Is anyone else getting issues receiving emails (again)? I have been getting the 0x800CCC0F error pretty regularly over the last couple of days. Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of dealing with a legal dispute so can't afford for my emails not to come through! I can check in webmail, but that's not always convenient/possible. Any clues, anyone?
While waiting for the problem to be fixed AND in case of any future problems, you can always have your email forwarded to a separate email address that has more reliable access.
Sign into webmail, go to settings, and set up the autoforward rule to your chosen email address. Be aware that anything sent to the VM spam folder will not be forwarded. You might choose to turn off the VM spam filter to ensure that everything is sent to the other address, which will normally perform its own filtering. If you do, be aware that IME the VM forum community emails get sent to spam by yahoo mail.
In the long run - don't use VM emails for anything you value dearly. It is a free add-on to your broadband service, and has lower security than might be desired for financial dealings. Plus if you leave VM, you lose access to the email address, so better to choose one that is not linked to an ISP.
