Strange email about BT Mail


[link to this post]
 
Today I receive an email, from BT, advising that BT Mail is changing.

This is the FIRST email that I've received on the subject!

The gist of this email is advising me of the actions, that I need to take, BEFORE they start changing over from Yahoo! Unfortunately they also advise that the changeover will commence in May 2014!

I'm really not sure how, on the 19th June 2014, I'm meant to take action BEFORE May 2014!

Just as well that I don't use BT Mail (I get all of my btuser@btinternet.com emails forwarded to my proper email address)!

Regards,
John

The migration is taking so long that they forget to update the email templates they send out.

The main gist people who use BT Yahoo need to know is:

- Don't use Yahoo SMTP/IMAP/POP3 hostnames, use mail.btinternet.com
- Log in to webmail via www.bt.com

BE CAREFUL.

Look closely at all the embedded links.

I had a couple recently which looked OK, but the embedded links were to a variety of non-BT URLs.

The text went:

Hello,

The Classic version of BT Yahoo! Mail will be replaced by our new version on 29th October 2013. So it's time to upgrade, before you lose your email access.

When you upgrade your BT Yahoo! Mail
Your email service won't be affected and you'll keep all your old contacts, folders and messages. Plus you'll get:
faster email
the latest spam protection
unlimited email storage.
How you can upgrade your account
Click on the link below and follow the instructions. You'll also need to agree to some new terms and conditions.Click here to update your account



Thanks for choosing BT,

Warren Buckley
Managing Director, Customer Service


Obviously the October 2013 was a give-away too, but all looked so good.
