Tried to log into Tiscali webmail yesterday and my account information was not being accepted - tried again today and still no access.

You can't even contact customer services unless you are a paying customer so it looks as if it's bye bye to tiscali free webmail

Forwarded it onto their Marketing department!!!

What Muppets!!!!

Vista - What Vista???

I like may others who have gone for this Upgrade will have received e mails to say that there order has been cancelled.

In my case they refuse to accept that payment had been made for the upgrade even after a fax was sent to the number provided by Moduslink with confirmation of payment being made.

If any further promotions involve using Moduslink as a supplier then i think I’ll forget about it and go elsewhere!!!

If nothing is received from them soon I will have to look at legal action against them!!

Microsoft feasts on Vista coupons for record quarter

Vista - What Vista???

After long delays and numerous e mails - payment of postage charges still no software.

I checked the status of my order this morning only to find that they have cancelled the order.

No e mail or communication in any way as to why the order was cancelled even after the order had been confirmed.

Just waiting to hear from them after the e mail I sent this morning asking why the order was cancelled and pointing out the fact that what they have done would possibly be classed as fraud or theft.

Vista - What Vista???

I, like many others who took the express upgrade path (and i use the term express in the loosest possible term) are still waiting for the software to be sent.

I have now been waiting for nearly 12 weeks, money has been taken from my account for the software but no e mail to say it has been sent and no reply to any e mails to Moduslink!! And no updates on their website.

That will be where their extra profit is coming from - taking money and not supplying the software!!

Microsoft want to rethink when they choose partners for any of their promotions and make sure that they get someone that can actually deliver the product when they say they will!!
