Hi Brenda,

Maybe this site will help: BT Yahoo! Help (http://btybb.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/btybb.cfg/php/enduser/cci/bty_homepage.php?p_sid=d_Duc22j&p_lva=&p_li=&p_sp=&icon=1&p_page=1&p_search_text=&cat_lvl1=149&p_cats=149&p_cv=1.149&p_new_search=1)

It has instructions for setting up BTinternet e-mail accounts in the different versions of Outlook as well as Outlook Express:

Brenda you should be able to access your bt mail from the bt home page, (Sign in to BT Yahoo! Online (http://www.btinternet.com)) on the right hand side of the page you should see a mail box

I set up another account last week so e-mail came directly into my outlook express account I followed the online information and it was really easy.

I will have a look and see if I can find the link I used

Try this

Brenda, Type outlook express 'set up' into your google search bar and you will get an illustration. I now have Windows Mail (that is with Vista). As far as I can remember for XP you go to Start, Control Panel, Open Outlook Express Folder, Select Mail Tab and remove any writing in the boxes both the POP and SMPT lines are the same wording and type in ' mail.btinternet.com click ADD then Close. You will now get a screen to put your full user name which will be (brenda@btinternet.com) etc type a password twice, check box to remember the p/w if you wish. Sorry I cannot remember it all but it should follow through. You may be able to do this from your home page using Tools tab. I stand to be corrected on this as it is a long time since I used this set up.

Brenda, Like you I had a problem with a company a few months ago and I just could not understand them and likewise I felt sorry for them as they were in the same position. I made a gentle enquiry and asked if they still had an office in the UK and by luck they put me through. Further more it was only about 15 miles away from where I live. Try that but also send technical support@bt....an email.
Are you certain that you cannot change your name yourself.
While I know little about BT I would have thought that you could call yourself Joe Bloggs@bt. Let me know how this cropped up and I may be able to help you sort it.

Outlook express is not exactly anything to do with BT you could use say Google Mail with your BT account so tell me why you think BT have caused this problem.

We are on BT internet too.

I don't think you can change your primary email address, but you can always open another one in the proper name.

Go into "my account" on the BT homepage and scroll down and click on sub account.

My OH has the primary account but me and my daughter have our own email addys as sub accounts.

Mmm, I think if you contacted the press or local tv news to tell them that BT had forced you to have an email address with "Bender" in it, BT will very quickly find a way of changing it! Perhaps if you tell BT that you are planning to do just that unless they change it they will sharpen their ideas up.
