Yes - cpcloud = Critical Path cloud, for some strange reason a German
outfit.


So that's what that cloud reference means.

And being a new customer you've not had the pleasure of
learning that all the bt/yahoo credentials were hacked years before
any admission of the situation.


I do know that many Yahoo accounts were compromised a while back.


Not "many", *all*

I've
had spam from friends using Yahoo who had no idea that miscreants were
sending mail from them.


That had been going on for years. I persuaded my wife to move away from
them after the second time.

I thought they had. My server is mail.btinternet.com and there's no

Some users are on BT Servers, some on Yahoo. Migration seems to be on
hold. I think this split may be causing many of the problems...

Dave


So any idea how to persuade BT to move one's accounts off Yahoo?

Get a new account? It is hard to understand why BT are dragging their
feet on this. There are issues of users taking advantage of the "one
off throwaway" address by creating a new one for every entity they
deal with and the new systems don't cater for this.

But, it is hard to understand why BT do (or don't do) many things. I
don't think they understand either. No one who knows anything in the
right positions.

Get a gmail account? You can set it to automatically pick up any emails
in your BT account.

When the server goes wobbly, third party [programs] can't access the email on the server.

No but it will keep trying until it can - and over a period of time your
correspondents will tend to use your gmail account rather than the BT
one. Better still get your own domain name with mail forwarder.

Seems to be some sort of hazard - e.g. trying to send asynchronously with a general download, but have not pinned it down yet.

On phone / tablet it says password invalid :-(
