Wow! That's a huge non answer!!!!

To be honest it was the hastle of changing these emails that have kept me a loyal vm customer all these years!

I guess if you're not willing to fix this I'll have to start moving to my gmail and look for another ISP!

Hi Northwind

There is a thread above running to 37 pages but, to be honest, the outcome is exactly as you’ve seen here. 

I have not seen a single response from a VM employee either apologising, or explaining what has happened or what they are going to do.

Yep - seems they really don't give a **bleep** about losing paying customers!

Hopefully with all these broadband updates digging up the streets there will be some real competition soon!

 

Time to start devolving my vm email addresses!

Turns out most of these are now coming from a domain "newstim.it" 

I'm not sure if I did it right but I tried applying a rule for everything from *@newstim.it - should that work?

I'm not an expert on the filters to be honest but I think that should do the trick - let us know if they still continue to come through once the filter is set up. 

 

I do appreciate this will be frustrating and I'm sorry there's not more we can do to help directly.

The same senders (offering a variety of vouchers from the likes of Lidl, Amazon etc) seem to have dropped the domain 'newstim.it' and are now using '123box.net'. I have tried a number of configurations in email filters with no success.

Thanks for taking the time to post here on our forums @Humblestrummer.

 

Are these mails going into your main mailbox or spam folder?

 

 

Regards,

Steven_L

Yep - I'm getting these again several times a day - into my main folder!
