Hi X-File,

Thank you for your post. I'm very sorry to hear about this. 

To confirm, is this happening when trying to access the online account?


Hi Martin,

Yes, though my laptop, have tried on another computer with the same error. Works ok on my iphone as i got an email confirming my password reset. Also tried edge and chrome browser.

Thank you for that information. Are you able to sign into the online account on the iPhone?

Are you having any issues accessing other sites?


Yes, as i keep it signed in to pick up emails during the day. no other issues

Can you please confirm what the other devices you are using are? 

Are they connected on a Wired or Wireless connection?

What email client are you sign in via?


laptop on wireless, computer on wired.

Through browser on Edge or Chrome 

Iphone via outlook.

Are you able to try Outlook on the laptop or computer?


Tried on laptop and it looks like you cannot add an external email to that, only the premium can do that by the looks of it


Tried on outlook 2019 on pc, keeps getting connection dropped on imap server?

setting are port 993 and port 465
