I recently had to arrange an overdraft facility for my business account. To cut a long story short, a 2 month trial for a 12 month marketing campaign was so unresponsive I chose not to go ahead and not to start making the required monthly payments. So understandably I wasn’t too pleased when the first payment was taken from my account! (This was not a cheap campaign but would have paid for itself if effective.) It was coming up to the end of the month and other debtors were a bit late so as a precaution I approached the bank for a temporary overdraft. It costs £150

OK, so there are probably lots of people unhappy with their BT service but there are equally very many people that are more than happy with the service. Personally I fluctuate between the two.

Following on from a previous post about BT broadband it seems as if the problem is getting worse. Emails are not being delivered across the nation and beyond…!

So junk faxes are farily inevitable and there only seems to be one logical way of saving at least half of the paper they usually waste. Just turn them over and out them back in the printer/fax machine and when you want to print something yourself, put in a fresh piece.

I have BT broadband for business and recently I found certain emails were not being delivered. I checked with my host, tried sending email from addresses in different hosting locations and had no luck. I could receive email from these people but not send it and I kept getting the same delivery error message. I discovered the error message (550 Rule Imposed Mailbox Access) was consistent with SPAM software known as MailMarshall. I also discovered MailMarshall auomatically updates itself from known ’email blacklists’. Naturally I was concerned when I entered my IP address into an ’email blacklist’ checker and found my IP
