Hi Yusuf

Yes, BT appears to think BCAB is spam, and I got bounced off the list
yesterday and had to resubscribe.  All very weird, may follow suit with the
domain idea.


Kind regards,

Well actually it does. To give an example, for ages all my emails, or 
pretty much all, from the local Freegle list were being treated as spam 
and not downloaded, even though, theoretically at least the spam guard 
was turned off and I routinely went into the spam folder to move them to 
my inbox. Now most of them are being downloaded, but many emails from 
the BCAB email list are being treated as spam. I can't explain it, and 
frankly I've had enough of it. So, I've now gone and purchased my own 
domain with my own email and am in the process of sorting that out so 
that I can switch to that completely and not use BT at all, or at least 
hardly use it.
