It appears Talktalk have, or are in process, of wiping out all Tiscali email adresses.
Last night I couldn't log on to my normal Tiscali email address, after an hour on the phone this morning the conclusion is it's an orphan and nothing could be done.
Not happy but such is life, so logged in to 'my account' which uses a newer Tiscali address to change my forwarding of emails as they all go to old account, well I can log in to 'my account' but can't get into that email either, so online chat and i'm told they are wiping out all tiscali email addresses. Realy not happy now as that's all my email contacts with bank, ebay, paypal, taxman etc.
As it appears to have been a predetermined action they could have at least inform me.
