Virgin.net has served me tolerably well over the years, but is having one of its 'little moments' since about 10pm on Wednesday. I am currently unable to send emails from Outlook Express via virgin.net, and I know another user who has the same problem Incoming emails are arriving as normal. I cannot find a forum that indicates that the problem is more general, but reporting big faults might be seen as being bad for business. Emails can still be sent from the Virgin Media website. Initially I thought it was a conflict with new browsers I was trying out via the new Browser Choice option (none of them are as good as IE, but they should at least be tried out). I have now uninstalled these and it has made no difference.
