OK, thanks.  I will let you know how I get on.  But who the hell are Spamhaus that they can stop my emails and accuse me of being a Spammer?

Oh God, this has brought back some horrible memories-  a few years ago when I was still on Micro**t XP and using an 02 dongle for web connection I too got that Spamhaus. I was blocked from making posts on forums I had been for ages. I did get the problem resolved in the end but forget how now- if I remember I'll let you know. I read about Spamhaus and they are well hated!

They're actually addressing a problem that NEEDS addressing .. though I can't talk for their implementation.

I had a long conversation with 'Three' this morning who said basically that they could not see what the problem was.  Then a missed call and message asking me to contact them.....I haven’t but strangely ALL email accounts are now working.  ???

Thanks to all who tried.

Glad to hear they solved it :)

How much did that support call cost you .. anything ?

Nothing. Free if you have a contract.  Just dial 333.

It is not the first time 'Three' have fixed something and not told me.  It's like they don't want to admit any fault.

Too true.  Caused me lots of grief though. 

Still, it's 'Beer O' clock' now.  :)

Have a good evening.

Strange- seems to be a dongle thing, glad you got it sorted.
