UK 'meltdown' bank TSB's owner: Our IT migration was a 'success'


Re: 402 customers?

Tesco webmail used to be a devil for this, log in and see the inbox of the person logged in before even if they'd chosen to sign out. It could be a shared device and be doing something similar.

'Every little helps'... unless you want email: Tesco to kill free service


Re: seriously sad

It can be a monumentally tedious task dealing with having your free email address pulled. I've had numerous Tesco email addresses for 15+ years and just remembering where I've used them is taking some doing. I did purchase my own domain years ago but simply lacked the enthusiasm to complete that task of moving everything, something which has now become a little more urgent; but ultimately a worthwhile exercise. What's making it a little more 'entertaining' are those websites where you can't change your email address on-line such as John Lewis and Costco amongst others. Sadly it also exposes those naughty institutions who still send out plain text password reminders, not resets, in emails.

It's definitely worth getting your own domain and then updating everywhere it's necessary (but completing the task, d'oh) to avoid the pain.
