Think someone using IE9 in Vista is slightly more ridiculous

Yet another browser snob?

No reason BT Webmail should not work under any browser or tht BT email should not work from any PC email client.

No I'm not being a browser snob, I use IE11 every day at work but IE9 is out of date. Nobody expects google to support IE8 on Windows XP and it's not unreasonable that websites will phase out support for IE9 as well eventually.

The OP should see how they get on with chrome or Firefox as these are still being actively developed on the XP and Vista platform

That someone uses BT Mail as their main or only email service is what I find ridiculous. I have my client set up to check for new mail that may arrive in there from BT but that is all. That said, it *does* work using IE9 under Vista so there must be something else about the OP's set up (security software settings?) which is stopping it working for them.

Yeah, I think it's poor that Microsoft stopped releasing new versions of IE on Vista, an OS which is still suported. For that reason I tend to recommend Vista users switch to Chrome. The web is no place to be using outdated clients, IMO.

Anyone would think MS had stopped releasing securiy fixes for the latest version of IE that is supported by Vista. Well have they?

No. But but web technologies are fast developing and security fixes aren't the only things needed in a web client.

What was the last web technology that was a real step forward in what we had before? What recent web technology is essential to the working of a decent webmail client?

It's my personal preference not to use deprecated web clients. If you want to use IE9 that's fine by me. I'm not trying to convert you.

I think you really meant "in a browser", not just a "web client". (Although that is the case in point in the thread).

Well they're not into they extended support cycle so it's pretty much just security fixes now. Security fixes won't keep the browser up to date in terms of supporting newer web technologies though.

Which ignores the questions in my follow up post. Helps to read the whole thread before sticking one's oar in.

I was addressing your question asking whether or not Microsoft had dropped support. Not whether or not new email clients need the latest features.

The aggression is not appreciated.

It comes from dealing with web servers, I like to use server/client terminology in my speak. So a web client is used to access a web server in my head. I probably should have used the word "browser" though, yeah.
