Hi Annette

If you download something (free) like Mozilla's Thunderbird :-

1) you would then be composing off-line (with different s/w) and  will not apply
2) you would be reading off-line (etc) plus option/add-ons available can restrict/free them up (+ your anti-virus/malware settings)

2. Notified of reply to a Rootschat topic I've contributed to but when I click on the link to view it absolutely nothing happens.   However, if I click on the 'Unsubscribe' link (just checking to see if that link worked) it takes me right there.   Why can't I open the link to view the reply?
Yep same here.
I didn't bother to even guess what it might be, I just left & went elsewhere.

Perhaps a moderator has moved or deleted the topic so the link is no longer relevant.

No, it's definitely not that.   This is one of the threads I've contributed to.

Right now, I do not see why I should have to download something else in able to view it as usual.   It's a fault of the new BT mail and needs to be sorted.

Will contact BT.

And I'm guessing tomorrow never comes......

Gadget, I'm logged into BT to read my emails and then clicking on the link in the rootschat email as I always did.   The link in any rootschat reply to view the latest post just doesn't work now (yet the link to unsubscribe does should I want to do that).   Other email links are working but just not the one for rootschat!!

Have emailed BT but Jim says they are already aware of the problem!!

Although it takes a little getting used to I can put up with changes for the better.   However, if the new system won't allow me to do something that I did before how is that 'better' for me?

Not happy.

I don't have the notification links sent to me - just look at the New Replies link at the top of the Forum page each time and that brings them all up.
I have abandoned BT.com, as it still logs me out every few minutes, and am happily using Thunderbird to get my BT emails.   It is much better.

Are they changes for the better or are they just saying they are.
Are these changes just to make life easier for BT.
Is it just to allow them to rake in more revenue from the ads we're forced to negotiate before we can see our emails.
Answers on a postcard if you're with BT.....it's quicker.
