For four days Telstra email systems have been having issues. Blocking all emails from all internet services. Dial-up, satellite, Next-G, cable and finally, ADSL e-mail accounts were affected.
Martin Barr, a Telstra Spokesman said the problem with e-mail login access and delays since Monday are now rectified. He also added "We have updated the service page and issue is now resolved". He could not confirm how many customers were affected, but said "Those accounts have been progressively unlocked".
It seems all is good now for those with Bigpond e-mail services!
