I have no other device
can you go to POP & Forwarding page again
is there an option to "disable" the forwarding feature?
something like "do not use forwarding" option
that other address appears in the box, only two options forward to another address and access BT via POP

sorry I have had visitors, I would be most grateful if you could sort this out, I would have an hour now, then possibly not until tomorrow
Relist: Other. I am awaiting someone to link up with my computer, I am only free for an hour now. I am not very happy, this is the second time I have approached Just answer this week to a cost of £56 and problem still not sorted.
No point sending an email as this is the problem I cannot receive emails since being hacked this week
7.30pm I have just found my emails back - thank you very much - I hope all resolved Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
sorry but I am still not receiving my emails, the Mail Options still reads Forward Bt Yahoo mail to another address - [email protected] - is this the person who has hacked my emails? Please advise as to what I do now. Thank you
Hello, Sorry for the delay. Many times when someone hacks an email account they add a forwarding address. The reason is, so no one can email you and tell you that you were hacked. It is not the hackers email address it is just a rubbish email address that likely doesn't lead anywhere. The purpose is to direct all messages out of your inbox so you don't get mail. They usually make the address look like your own except for maybe a 1 letter difference. That way you think it is meant to be there and leave it.You need to delete the forwarding address and confirm that forwarding is turned off. The forwarding address box should be blank, nothing should be in there.Once you remove it your mail should work again.-Chris
Thanks will try that again.
I have done this and I am now receiving e mails and trusting the ones I have sent will be received. Thank you very much.
