      Re: doin my head in

      depends if its account specific or not....might be issue with the mailbox and might need rebuilding

      tbh, the issues reported on here are the minority - its all gone pretty smoothly from our end (as in hardly any calls for it - and those that have called in were just changing settings from old to new, which is very straight forward)

      Ah yes.....and how do I find out if its account specific or whether the mailbox needs rebuilding?


      Smoothly....not from where im sat im afraid, and its certainly not been very straight forward.

      Cheers anyway, might ring the helpline for a laff.
