Thanks for that useful link. I actually use IE9 with Windows 7 so I'm OK there. I tried clearing my Temp files and cookies and that seems to have worked. Interestingly I was using webmail whilst OE was set up on another machine to download BT mail - I think this has happened before and it seems that it only likes to be accessed from one machine at any one time. I like the new webmail interface by the way - anyone know of any glitches?
