That exciting (?) message arrived in my Outlook.com email inbox July 22nd."Great news, Telstra Mail™ is just a few steps away."
"We’ve successfully moved your email to our new Telstra Mail. As a result, this is the last email you’ll receive in this Telstra mailbox."
Since then I've found it almost impossible to access my bigpong emails.
No joy with Firefox, my preferred browser. In desperation I tried the buggy IE, with limited success, but wouldn't log me in today.
In a moment I decided to download the Google Chrome browser to try.
"Voila", success !!
Won't get too excited yet, will give it a few days.
I might add that I've spent several hours on the phone to the Philippines, had my password changed several times, and torn out most of my hair.
PS: To add to my frustration the 'Search the web and Windows' bar went AWOL yesterday and that took me several hours to recover it. I really miss a lot of the features in W7
