As far as I can work out the Bt?Yahoo tie up is the same as the
VirginMedia/Gmail tie up. Yahoo and Gmail seem to be providing the email
platform for BT as Google are doing for VirginMedia etc. Even though my
email is still NTLworld it is still Gmail.

I have both a Google and a Yahoo account but choose not to use either for my
email.

Hello Alexander

I am thinking cautiously as I try to answer your question about Yahoo's
involvement with BT.  Yahoo seems to be linked in with them where email is
concerned.  I have always wanted to retain my address with "btinternet" in
it and I remember early on I was invited to update my address and take on an
avatar or something.  I declined this but I found I had a BT Yahoo home page
and I could use my username and password to log onto Yahoo direct - "Hello
friend!"  Whether this is the case for all the BT email offerings or not, I
don't know.

I have username and password and, while using the main site was impossible a
couple of months ago, I find the mobile site is straightforward and quite
functional.  I could conduct my email account on the mobile sight but I
prefer to use Outlook and have the messages on my computer.  So I can
happily download my messages to my computer with the reasonable certainty
that I won't be spammed.  Every day or two I check on the mobile site to see
if I have any genuine messages wrongly trapped in the spam folder and I can
direct them to my inbox.

So, Alexander, you can test the situation for you by using your BT password
and username at the BT Yahoo mobile site.  If they don't know you, you've
got something special so hang on to it.

Hi Karl,

Your answer to Yusuf's question confuses me.

I know that BT Internet are linked to yahoo, but am I correct in
understanding what you've said in reply to Yusuf to mean that BT Customers
with @btinternet.com e-mail addresses can use the mobile site you refer to
to deal with spam?
