I always thought that, as long as you logged into the email account at
least once every 90 days, it would remain open for *receiving*, even
though you wouldn't be able to send or reply.

No email has come into any of the four accounts for three days now and
that is extremely unusual. The Outlook client polls the accounts as
normal and seems to complete as normal, ie, no requests to confirm
username or password and no error messages.

Is there some problem with BT email at the moment or does it look like
BT have closed the accounts and don't honour the 90-day thing anymore?


Probably Yahoo broken down again. (BT email uses Yahoo). It will right
itself eventually.

They did also start to use Critical Path. Have they abandoned that?


The transition stalled several years ago. Anyone who hadn't been emigrated
back then is still on Yahoo.

By @btopenworld address (which I think is the same as @btinternet) has
been working for years too - Yahoo permitting.


BT have been reclaiming openworld addresses for business use. Are you
sure it still works?

Total nonsense.
BT business email addresses are
[email protected] is completely interchangeable with

as reisdential addresses


And Yahoo were dropped ages ago (for most of us)


Sadly not all...

No idea, sorry. My address stayed with Yahoo.

Yes; it still sends and receives happily (most of the time).
