  • why does our invoices stay in clutter and not get into our Email address box. It doesn't go into spam either. We do not get important mail from people. this needs to be sorted. We are not the only with this problem

  • I cannot make my btconnect mail account in Outlook, Windows 10 receive mail. I can send mail, but only when I set it up automatically and then I seem unable to use advanced settings. Please help - it's been 2 wasted days.

  • Since a glitch with our broadband connection a few weeks back - which might be totally unrelated - e-mails sent from this address appear to come from a "Doris Smith" who was chair of the organisation a few years back. We use Microsoff Office Outlook and going into Tools, Accounts and "change settings" the "Your Name" show what we want with as "LPForum" with no sign of a Doris Smith anywhere. How can this be corrected so that those receiving the mail see it is from "LPForum". This is quite an important issue for what is a small charity as the mail otherwise can be treated as junk and discarded unread.
