    My sister in law is having trouble with Tiscali and I was wondering if any other people with them as their ISP could help please?

    Incoming email is fine. However, when trying to send mails, the connection to smtp.tiscali.co.uk just times out.

    The outgoing server connection is setup exactly as per the instructions from them and what I could find on the web. I've double checked everything, but just can't see what the problem is, so I was wondering if there's some random setting which needs to be tweaked?

    Certainly when I search on Google it looks like Tiscali have less-than-reliable email servers, but I've not been able to find anything specific which could fix it. I've told her to log a fault with them, but if anyone can help, it would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Ugh I remember my encounter with Tiscali a few years back.

    Before I had a Mac, but they were terrible.

    the service was always down and generally slow. I've now switched to Virgin and have been a happy bunny pretty much ever since.
